Teased fluffy pigtails for grown-ups

Pigtails might seem like the most girly, youthful hairstyle on the planet but if you style them right, you can actually achieve quite a grown-up look. In fact, there's no reason this seriously playful hairstyle can't work just as well for the adult-you as it did when you were younger!

Being a little edgy with your styling is the main thing, don't shy away from a fresh new look, just because you used to wear pigtails in a different style way back when. For a more mature hairstyle, you'll probably need to update the texture you wear when styling pigtails, ditch the braids, and keep the bunches close to the nape of your neck... rather than sticking out above your ears, à la Pippi Longstocking.

What you need:

Tail comb
Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
Hair elastics
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Use a tail comb to define a center part then split your hair into two halves, right down the middle.

Step two: Spray the lengths of your hair generously with High Lift Creation Spray.

Step three: Use a comb to gently tease your hair, being careful not to rip it or pull it around too much.

Step four: When you're done teasing, gather the hair into two loose pigtails on either side of the nape of your neck, and secure with hair elastics.

Step five: Shape and sculpt the hair a little with your hands then fix the whole style with a generous mist of Bold Control Hairspray.

And you're done!
