Remember pigtails? That two-pony trend you used to rock back in the day? Well get ready, because this grade school staple is coming back in a major way.
But we’re not talking about your everyday, average pigtail. These breathtaking takes on our favorite dual pony trend are mindblowingly chic, the cutest #tbt alternative to a boring braid or a overdone updo. From ultra-voluminous curls to super sleek twists, celebs and stylists alike are proving that pigtails aren’t just for kids.
Revisit a classic elementary ‘do with these 10 revamped and revitalized on the pigtail trend below!
1. The Bubble Ponies
The only thing better than one bubble pony is TWO bubble ponies. These puffed up pigtails are a sculptural masterpiece, subtle but still totally chic. With just a couple of pins and ties, this braid-free style is a laidback alternative to your everyday updo.
2. Slick Classic
This grade-school style is all grown up. Perfectly placed high on the back of the head, these cute, curled ponies are a definite dream come true. Complete the look with some super snatched edges and you’re ready to go.
3. Boho Braided
Braided pigtails are pretty much always on trend, but this sunny set of fishtails is hands down the hottest summer ‘do. Use hair ties to create the bubbled-braids you see below, or opt for a classic straight-through fishtail. Either way you’ve got yourself the ideal beach-day braids.
4. Low Braids
The fashion world is sleeping on low braids. With a classic center part and just a few face-framing flyaways, this simple style is extremely versatile. Pair with yoga pants and cropped tee for the ideal out-for-errands ensemble or switch it up and opt for a light sundress for an adorable day date aesthetic.

Studded strands? Sign us up. We’re drooling over this expertly-accessorized rendition of double dutch braids. Who knew pigtailed plaits could be so punk rock?
