If you need a versatile hairstyle for summer that you can wear in several different ways, look no further than braided pigtails. Whether you have long or medium-length hair, pigtails are a really playful way to keep your mane under control during the warmer months.
A multi-tasking summer hairstyle
One of the main reasons we love pigtail braids so much is because they're just so cute! However you wear them - tousled, sleek or even wet-look - they're adorable. Pigtails are also super versatile because they work beautifully with all textures, whether you braid them or not. Not only that, they can be styled with any accessories you want, too, from ribbons to chains to a simple headband.
Lastly, you can easily pin braided pigtails up to form an braided crown or cute double knots. Both of these options are ideal for the hottest days when you just can't have anything on your neck.
1/ Keep it "grown up"
The trick to making pigtails a viable hairstyle option for adult life is a controlled, low placement. High, bouncy pigtails are girlish and more youthful, whereas low, relatively static pigtails seem more grownup... albeit in a way that isn't taking anything too seriously.
2/ Get a tousled texture
To create a slightly messy, tousled texture before braiding your hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry in twisted sections.
3/ Prevent frizz
To stop frizz and/or flyaways from ruining your finished look, spritz your pigtails from top to bottom with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray when you're done styling.
