P is for pigtails and why I grew my hair
Many years ago I knew a man who loved pigtails. He actually wrote about it on his blog. It was about a partner of his at the time and how watching her plait her hair had turned him on. The way he wrote it about it, the little details of it, you could just tell it was a thing that spoke to him and it something that stayed with me once I had read it. He was the man who likes pigtails.
I had short hair at the time. In fact I have had short hair since my early 30’s. I had tried growing it a couple of times before but the moment it got to the awkward stage between lengths I would get annoyed with it and cut it short again but then about three years ago seeing my daughters beautiful long hair made me think back to the days when I had long hair and it really made me want to grow it again. I knew if I didn’t do it soon then I properly wouldn’t ever do it also the older I got the longer it would potentially take and so I decided to let it grow and maybe grow long enough to tie into pigtails.
I thought it would take forever and I was worried it wouldn’t be as thick and healthy as it had been in my 20’s but apparently I need not have worried as it actually grew really quickly and I absolutely love having long hair again. I can’t ever imagine cutting it short now but as I say often here, never say never, but for now. It is staying long.
Turns out that various partners are rather fond of it too. Long hair does give you something to really grab a hold of and also I have found that some men love the little tendrils of hair that fall down when you have it pinned up and others love it long and flowing but so many seem to love the pigtails which is good because I love them too.
They make me feel cute and playful and happy when I plaint my hair into those twisted ribbons of hair. I recently bought a set of matching mini scrunchies in a variety of pinks and purples so that it would match a lot of my clothes. Sometimes there are no plaits, just what we call in the UK bunches and sometimes I even go for a Princess Leah space buns look. I love having long hair and all the potential things I can do with it. Also unlike short hair you can get away with washing it once or twice a week.
What’s not not to love about long hair and pigtails?
