Do you like my pony tails?

Saturday, September 29, 2007


Will and I have a disagreement going. He says these are pigtails (2 on the sides) and a ponytail is one in the back. Is there really a specific distinction? These are a week old and Miss Kate got a "bob" haircut to even out the "mullet" she was sporting. So, she won't be wearing any pigtails or ponytails for a while anyway!

  3. For me, both sides and back are ponytails--you are both right.
    Pigtails are braids that are nice and tight so that they curl on the ends--like Pippi Longstockings...
    Pigtails and braids are the same thing. Ponytails are loose on the ends...can be curled but not braided...it is confusing.

  4. Yes, I have to agree with Will. These are precious. I love her hot pink dress! Z is desperately in need of her 5th hair cut since being home- can you believe it??? I refuse to let her have a baby mullet Ha! Ha!

    XOXO,

  8. Kim,

    I hate to do it but I have to agree with Will on this one. Technically Kate had "pigtails". The whole "pigtail" thing doesn't make any sense, but that's the way it is.

  9. OMG ~ I LOVE her pig tails! She is adorable! I have been so bad about getting on the computer the last couple of days as we have been on a non-stop run! I plan to post tonight but I just had to check my favorite little girl before church :D

    Ladybug hugs,
    ;D

  10. So cute. Hair envy here! Poor Miss Lindy's hair is so fine and scarce, keeping a bow or a band in it is a chore.

    Looking forward to seeing pix of the bob.

    Have a great Sunday!

  12. Oh my goodness, she looks so grown up in these pictures! I have to agree with Will, piggie=2 pony=1. Now what would we call what Myah was sporting when we got her 1 on top and 2 in back! A poggie? Ha ha! Anxious to see the new style.

  13. Too cute! I always called two ponys, pigtails. It's cute that Will knows that.

  14. I disagree with Will. 1 - ponytail (wherever it is) 2 - ponytails. Plural. (wherever they are).

    I know I am in the minority when I say this though.

    Braids = pigtails.

    I had this question posed on my blog awhile back now, and found out most people will agree with Will. How can so many people be wrong? ;)

  15. Ok...after the different thoughts on this, I had to consult wikipedia. You can check it out for yourselves too, but pigtails are parted in the middle and seperated into two bunches of hair. They can be braided or not and still be pigtails. Ponytails are pulled away from the face and worn in one bunch at the back of the head. They go on to tell much more, but I won't bore you all with it. Ha! I know....I'm a freak...but I had to know for myself once the question was brought up. Either way, her hair looks super cute!

  17. Jennifer,

    I appreciate your thoroughness in fact checking! I guess I will concede to Will. But I hate calling anything on my daughter a "pig" tail:) I might invent a new word!

    I think the one of top of the head is a waterfall or a "pebbles" (from the flintstones).

  18. Will is right!! Sorry mom!!! Pigtails are on the sides and pony tail is in the back!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Jennifer beat me to Wikipedia! Whatever they are, they are so cute (and they are short like a piggy's tail so I understand the confusion ;^)).

    So, where are the photos of Miss Kate in her new bob? Emma has a shag and we are going for the bob next week (though I'm not sure her hair is long enough in all places, but it's got to be better than this hairdo, which reminds me of a dark haired version of Florence Henderson's Mrs. Brady do...ick!).

  20. It has always been my understanding that pig tails are two on the side (like the ones pictures) and a pony tail is one in the back.

  21. Thanks for the education on pigtails vs. ponytails! Regardless, Miss Kate is still cute no matter what you call her hairstyle.

  22. We have had the same discussion several times with others, since our Kylee began sporting them. We agree with Will.....pigtails=2 on the sides, pony tail=1. I looked it up on wikipedia, because I was in disagreement with my mom who kept calling them ponytails. :o)
    LOL,

  23. Have your husband and mine been having secret talks? Mike pulled me up on it the other day when I said pony tail instead of pigtails for the side ones...he was right, I normally call them pigtails when there is two, I was tired and ponytail came out...goes to show men take more notice than we think!

  24. Well, you don't have to listen to wikipedia!!! What do they know!! Just make up your own term. My best friend started putting pigtails in her 3 yr olds hair. Her three year old kept telling her she was not a piggy that they were angel wings. So now my friend calls them angel wings and her daughter loves that she is an angel. :) Either way, Kate is beautiful!

  27. Ooh, yes, Miss Kate I looove your pigtails, but I'm sure I'll love your new "bob" too...you are cute no matter what!
    (and the clothes are too cute for words, too!)

  29. Love the pigtails, Kate looks adorable. I can't wait to see the "bob"! Kate looks so grown up!

    I think Will is right!

  30. Actually they are dog ears since a dog has two ears. pigs only have one tail as does a horse but why split hairs? A pigtail would be one in the back that curles and a pony tail would be long in the back. Dog ears are two one on either side.

    Either way they are adorable on your babe.
