I think it's annoying. I like to be different and I often express that with my style. I can't stand it when someone imitates it. Imitation is not a form of flattery, it's a form of lacking your own originality and creativity so you go around taking other people's and it's irritating, not complimentary. I'm currently annoyed af with a "friend", who is quickly becoming an acquaintance, who is now doing her hair EXACTLY like mine. So identically to my style that people are getting us confused. Then she doesn't own up to it when I call her out on it. At this point, I'm about to stop talking to her *although just last night I payed for her food and she gave me an Xmas card* because today, I'm so aggravated and annoyed. It's already bad enough that she's doing her curls JUST like mine, but imitating the same exact way I style it? ...No.
Am I being childish or petty?
What are your thoughts on this? How do you feel when your female friends try to imitate you?

I don't think you are being childish. If she keeps doing it every single time, it does get pretty annoying and seems like she's a bit obsessed with who you are. It's normal to do it every once in a while but if people are getting you confused that also gets irritating. I was almost in the same situation as you were one time. But look at it this way, if someone copies your style, then you must have taste. At least you are a creative girl. Most people aren't creative.1
