Age shouldn’t limit what hairstyle your sim rocks. Clearly, some hairstyles are easier to rock than others… but at the end of the day it’s all about personal style.

But let’s cover one of the more fun hair styles: pigtails! Characteristically Wednesday Addams madness and the innocence of Boo.

And although pigtails may seem childish, they’re not just for children. Even a grown woman can make these part of her style and look astonishingly younger, beautiful, and straight-up amazing.

And really, what’s as cute and sexy as an elaborate pair of pigtails, right?

Well all the custom content creators for TS4 seem to agree. So let’s dive into my list of the best CC for pig tails hairdos that can fit any style!

We can all agree on one thing: the hair growth phase after a pixie is the worst.

It’s a messy, uneven mane that can last for months.

But when you want your Sims experience to be as realistic as possible, maybe some untidiness can be the solution.

That’s the definition of this Biscuit hair CC by Nightcrawler, a perfect mix between really short and not-so-short, all while keeping things naturally held down with cute pigtails.

Available in 22 different finishes, this hairstyle is fit for anyone from teenagers to their elders.

This layered long bob would make it a hard task to take on the classical pigtail look. But mix it up with some braids and your Sim is good to go.
