Pigtails, a trend from the 90s
Like many other make-up looks and hairstyles of the 90s and 00s, pigtails will make a comeback in 2021. After the return of colored eyeliner, pastel eye shadow and French manicure, it is now time to bring the two open and high-bound braids back into fashion. You might think that this hairstyle is worn only by young girls, but that’s not true. Whether retro or modern, age doesn’t seem to play a role in this hair trend. Many stars have rediscovered the look – including Adèle Exarchopoulos at the Louis Vuitton dinner during the 74th Cannes Film Festival, but Ashley Graham, Jennifer Lopez and Kylie Jenner are also fans of the 90s hairstyle.
The hairstyle, which became a trend in the 90s and 00s thanks to Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice), is now reinterpreted by the celebrities, posted on social networks and presented on the street.
How will pigtails be worn in 2021?
So that the look does not seem too childish, you should not overdo it. Instead of making two large pigtails, it is better to divide the upper part of the hair from the lower one. Leave the lower part of the hair open and form two braids only with the upper part of the hair. If you want to try the classic 90s style, you can also loosen two small strands of hair and let the face play around.
This hairstyle is not only easy to create, but also gives the appearance a certain momentum and brings us directly back to the trends of the 90s and 00s, which are currently so popular again.
