Which pigtail braids get your vote?

Braided pigtails are both pretty and playful which makes them the perfect addition to any cute spring beauty look. The question is, would you be more likely to wear messy fishtail braids or French braided pigtails?

Fishtail braids

Disheveled fishtail braids create a laid back bohemian look that works really well with pigtails. The messy texture creates a relaxed, summery vibe that can be amped up with accessories. This style also makes fishtail braiding really easy because the hair is right in front of you as you do it.

Styling tip

Scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse into damp hair and rough dry using your hands and a blowdryer to control each piece as it dries. This will add plenty of body and natural-looking texture to your hair before you braid it.

French braids

When you need to keep your hair totally under control, whether you're at the gym or on a one-woman mission to defeat humidity, French braided pigtails are a great option for long locks. You can wear the style slightly looser if you prefer, and you can also add some color by adding ribbon to the braids or with a headband.

Styling tip

After straightening your hair, mist it with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and eliminate any flyaways before braiding.
