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)
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)
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)
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)
