When are you considered too old to wear Heidi plaits? I used to wear them a lot when I was younger and I've just started doing my hair like that again as it is very practical with children/glue/crafty stuff etc. I'm nearly 29 - is that too old to be wearing plaits? If I wear one plait it makes me look old but I don't want to look daft either - dilema! Can't wait for Peter's input into this!!

Hmm, forgive my bluntness but yep, too old.Not that 28 is old.
I can see its ideal for practical reasons, but then again us crafty types think outside the box so theres no reason not to wear your hair as you wish.

Maybe plait it then pin those plaits round the back of your head so they dont hang.Orplait ribbons into them.

Hehe, that was funny!!

Maybe us crafters should all wear our hair in heidi plaits as a show of union.

Well I thought I'd better beat you to your funny comment Peter!! Didn't get any strange looks when I've been out so thats good! I might try the pinning up idea.

She suggests the rain hood that comes on your rain coat!! When I suggested a waterproof day hat she laughed at me - what can I say!!

Could you thank Anya for her suggestion and let her know that its a much better suggestion than the waterproof folder I held over my head at lunchtime.
