Pigtails! I love a good pigtail because they are so cute on and they are an easy hairdo to do. Really think about it for a second… pigtails make your kiddo look so young and cute… along with giving a little sassy-ness to any girl! Most of the time my youngest Penley wears hers in the regular high pigtail style partly because her hair is so long. My oldest Paisley typically wears them a little lower because she just cut 8 inches off her hair. I would love to hear back which style you put your daughter in at bottom of blog!
Everyone always assumes since I have a hairbow company my kids are always in a bow… well they use to be until… well they started getting an opinion! YES, I said it sometimes my own kids don’t wear hairbows. I get the struggle that EVERY mom goes through… sometimes I fight with the girls about it, sometimes I don’t care and sometimes I tell them YOU’RE GOING TO WEAR THIS BOW – TOUGH! In all seriousness most of the time they wear one but sometimes they like to go with out it and I am not going to be the one to tell them they can’t have an opinion because lets face it… ultimately we want our kids to feel heard and understood.
So back to the pigtails and how cute they are… there are so many ways to style them. Here is a quick video on how to do a cute twist or even braid into your pigtails. It is SO EASY and it really does dress up the look of pigtails.
This past weekend was the Daddy Daughter Dance at Paisleys school… as many of you already know Paisley use to be a GIRLY GIRL like for real… she is now a Tomboy which is totally fine by me. Occasionally she will wear a dress. This year it was so cute because she got super excited about the dance and wanted to pick an extra special dress out and I was like what did you say… a dress… are you sure?
The funny thing is I told her okay I will buy you a dress but you have to promise to wear it to the dance. I gave her my phone and she looked at Dillards online. Paisley then proceeded to put in the cart 72 dresses. Yes I said 72. She came to me showed me and after 4 days of narrowing them down she ordered 3 dresses in hopes that one would be perfect for her special night. She promised me she would wear the other two to church. So far she has worn 2 of the 3 dresses and I am just not sure if that 3rd will get worn but I promise to keep you posted on that!
This style is so easy to do! Let me just break it down for you really fast.
- Part all the hair down the middle
- Section off the top half into half up half down pigtails
- Braid each of the pigtails
- Cross them to opposite side and throw them into a low pigtail
- Repeat for other pigtail side
So see… pigtails can be easy and fun and different all at the same time. More styles will be floating over here soon. Paisley, Penley and I can’t wait to show you.
See.. pigtails are fun – for any age! I feel way more youthful today. It may have even taken 5 years off my age and attitude.
