Long hairstyles: braided pigtails vs. rope twists

Which pigtails do you like best?

There are all kinds of grown-up ways to rock long pigtails, and we think braids are one of the best. They retain the same playful practicality of the hairstyles we used to wear as kids, and they're so versatile they can be worn anywhere.

For us, it comes down to a regular woven braid and a rope twist technique. Both look great with accessories, and both can be done with long and medium-length tresses.

The question is, which one gets your vote?

Braided pigtails

Whether you go for a French braid, a Dutch braid, a messy fishtail or a regular three-strand braid, plaited pigtails are always a winning look. You could even weave in a ribbon for some added detail!

Styling tip
Minimize flyaways by applying Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream before blow-drying your hair. This will give you a well-behaved, smooth mane to work with!

Rope twist pigtails

This sleeker style is a great look for anyone who likes to keep their locks locked down. So, if you need a new 'do for a yoga class, a laid back weekend with friends or a workday look that keeps the focus on your face, rope twist pigtails could be it!

Styling tip
To get a super sleek finish, mist your finished style with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to eliminate flyways and add shine.

What do you think? Which pigtails do you prefer?
