A cute hairstyle for girlswoven pigtails. We posted this style (shown below with messy buns) on our website back in 2008, before we started doing YouTube videos. Since that time, we have received many requests for a tutorial... and 6 years later (2014) we are finally getting around to it! Better late than never, right? ;) Can you believe, the Princess was only 5 years old in the pic below? She is now 11. Crazy how time flies!
This is one of the princess's favorite hairstyles for gymnastics and dance, since all of the hair is pulled back out of her face and it tends to hold up quite well, even with a lot of activity. Beyond the functionality of this style, of course she also loves the attention she receives when she wears this one (as it is quite unique and eye catching.)
The pigtails can be left down, curled, or finished with buns or braids. However you want to wear this hairstyle, it is sure to bring in compliments. ;)
- 4 medium size hair elastics (more if you are going to be making buns)
- A temporary clip to help keep the twists in place
- Water, gel, wax, or pomade (to help with flyaways)
