12 Pigtail Hairstyles You Can Rock at Any Age

Yep, you read the title right. We’re here to give you a little PSA that pigtails aren’t just for school-goers. Whether you’re looking for the perfect braids to rock around the office or the hairstyle that will top off your Thanksgiving look, we’ve got a dozen pigtail hairstyles that you can wear at any age.

1. Fun Ponies: While we’re slightly obsessed with her hot pink lip color, we also love the braids-meets-pony style of her pigtails. Achieve this look by braiding a few inches down each side of your head and securing with an elastic. It’s that easy!  (via The Glitter Guide)

2. Messy Dutch Pigtails: Take an old school braid and make it new school by simply doubling it. We’ll coin this one the Double Dutch ;) (via Brit + Co)

3. Messy Pigtails With Headband: If you’re looking for the perfect hairstyle to wear on cozy, laid-back days, look no further. Complete your look with a headband and fun necklace for the ultimate shabby-chic vibe. (via Free People)

4. Long Fishtail Braids: Elementary school goes high fashion with this look. We love that they kept it messy and left her flyaways flying free. (via Zsa Zsa Bellagio)

5. Pigtail Buns: Not ready for the full-on braided pigtails? Try out two buns instead. Just twist a couple sections of hair and tie off the look with an elastic or secure with bobby pins. (via Brit + Co)

6. Loose Braids: Classic loose pigtail braids will complement your chunky knit sweater and warm cup of hot cocoa just in time for fall. (via Little Lady)

7. Half Braids: Just because you have long, luscious hair doesn’t mean you have to braid all of it. Opt for half braids for your next Casual Friday at the office. (via My Shine Project)

8. Segmented Pigtails: Not only is our in-house beauty editor Misty Spinney totally owning the purple hair in this tutorial, but she also shows us how to get the perfect segmented pigtails: with a little teasing and a few elastics. You can get this adorable ‘do in under five minutes. (via Brit + Co)

9. Boho Braids: Bored of the boring braids? Even though summer has come and gone, we still think it’s totally acceptable to spice up your look with a flower headpiece. Because why not?! (via Become Gorgeous)

10. Poofed Braids: Bethany has us saying “Holy chic!” to her ‘do. Top off your pigtails this fall with a knitted headband for extra warmth. (via Bethany Mota)

11. Boho Braids with Hat: Add a boho vibe to your braids with feather pieces and a floppy hat. Extra points if you add a gorgeous statement necklace. (via Freckled Fox)
