Pigtails aren't just for little girls. You can wear them at any age. You just have to style them correctly and pair them with the right outfit. If you're interested in seeing how you look in them, here are a few braided pigtails that you should try to recreate:
1. Messy Pigtails
Messy buns and ponytails are popular, so why wouldn't you want to create messy pigtails? They work well on long or medium hair. You should start by parting your hair into two equal sections. Then you should start the braid a little further down your head than you usually do and end it a little earlier than you usually do.
2. French Pigtails
For this look, you're going to divide your hair into two equal parts. Then you should tie together the side you're going to work on later to keep it out of the way. After that, you're going to grab three strands of hair from the top of your hair and start to braid it. While you do that, you should incorporate additional pieces of hair into the mix.
3. Fishtail Pigtails
If you haven't learned how to create fishtail braids yet, it's time for you to learn! Skip to 3:10 if you want to hear some instructions. Basically, you're going to part your hair into two sections, and then you're going to take a piece from your left side and move it to your right side, and vice versa.
4. Cross Fishtail Pigtails
This look is a little hard to pull off, so you should only try it if you have a lot of patience. Seeing the instructions written out might be a bit confusing, but when you see it in action, it'll all make sense. If you keep this tutorial on while you do your own hair, then you shouldn't have a problem following the moves.
5. Knotted French Braid Pigtails
You don't have to be a little kid to pull off this look. It's adorable on women of any age. The best part? You can do it on wet or dry hair. It doesn't matter, as long as you have a few minutes to spare. However, this look takes a little bit of work, and you don't want to rush through it, which is why you should avoid testing it out when you're low on time.
6. Ladder Braid Pigtails
This one is a little complicated, but it'll look amazing once it's finished. You should start by parting your hair down the middle. Then you should take a small triangle section of hair and create a french braid with it. However, you should only go a little way down with it, and then switch to creating a feather braid. Now it's time for you to try it!
7. Dutch Pigtails
Dutch braids are different from most other braids, because they end up on the outside instead of on the inside. That means that your hair will look like it has more volume than usual. If you'd love to learn how to pull off this cute look, then you should check out this tutorial!
Pigtails aren't just for little girls. You can wear them now, or ten years from now, without feeling out of place. Which one of these pigtails would you love to try first?
