The last time you wore pigtails could have been when you were in middle school. If you graduated from the double hairstyle to single ponytails and braids, it’s time for a revisit. Pigtails are an easy summer hairstyle that’s perfect for beach days and festivals. If you’re bored with your ponytails, topknots and huns, try pigtails. What have you got to lose? If Harley Quinn can rock them, so can you.
