Slight Pigtail Variation

Once again I want to remind everyone of my giveaway going on HERE. Go check it out now to win a fun gift card to my daughters favorite store!!! The giveaway ends this Sunday.

Since my Giveaway is titled "A few of our favorite things" I thought this would be the perfect post. This is a very simple version of regular ol' piggy tails. Which just happen to be my daughter's very favorite style. Plain ol' Pigtails. Since I seem to have a problem with regular ol' things...I have changed it up just a little bit.

It still looks like very basic pigtails but with a slight variation. This way is fast and easy but we are both happy :) !!!

Part a small section out on both sides (like shown in the picture). Keep this section up front and out of the way.

While keeping the 2 sections out up front, part the hair down the middle and put in 2 regular pigtails.

Take the 2 parted out sections and pull them back over the hair holding in the pigtails. I combed it so it would be smooth.

Next take these 2 sections and do a simple shoelace knot by wrapping one strand around the other one and pulling tight.

Hook each end of the knot into the pigtail closest to it, using a new elastic.

Add some bling. Bows, Flowers, ribbon. Whatever suits your mood for the day. Curl the hair under and spray with hairspray.

That's that. Very simple pigtails with a slight variation. After all is said and done it adds maybe 1-2 minutes and to her looks exactly the same as the original variation.

That is a very cute, and simple way to jazz up pig tails.

I loved this post! I always can use new ideas on how to do my daughters hair. Especially since I am hair challenged as a daddy, and am the one who always has to do it. I will be back often to learn more.

Thanks for playing along with Oldies but Goodies! cant wait to see more of your old post!

Love and Prayers,
