You can make a very stylist set of pigtails by using two big cornrows. This style works best in African American hair, and is a great hairstyle for young girls. This is a great hairstyle for all occasions. This article will focus on cornrow pigtails and how you too can create this super simple style.
African hair works best for this hairstyle because it tends to hold its shape longer. Other hair types can still enjoy this hairstyle, but it will be more likely to become loose. If you are going to use this hairstyle for other types of hair then you should plan to use hairspray or moose to keep the style from falling out.
Before you begin make sure you have these items: hairbrush, small rubber bands, hairspray or mousse, and if the hair you are working with is very curly you should have a tangle spray on hand as well. You can also use a pair of stylish clips to add an extra spice to this hairstyle. Once you have all of these items, you will be ready to begin.
Make a straight part down the center of the head. You can part the hair in other ways as well, but a straight center part is easiest. Make sure to brush the hair very well, if hair is tangled this style will be hard to complete. This is when you would use tangle spray, but hair should be dry when braiding to avoid frizz later.
Once you have parted and brushed the hair, separate on half of the head into three sections of hair. It is assumed that you will already know how to cornrow before attempting this style. You will be making a large cornrow braid on each side of the head once you have separated the hair into three sections. Braiding a large cornrow is essentially the same as making a French braid.
Braid hair all the way to the nape of the neck. One you have run out of scalp, do not braid the remaining hair. Instead, allow it to hang loose in a cute ponytail. Doing this one each side of the head creates a great hairstyle for young girls that will keep hair out of their eyes and look very cute!
This hairstyle can be accessorized with a pair of attractive clips. You can dress this hairstyle in any way that suits the occasion. Add a headband for sport games or a scarf for a more formal occasion. This hairstyle can also be done on your own hair by yourself very easily.
