Our model shows off her waves here in this funky hairstyle complete with loose pigtails for a head turning look. If you are in your 20s or 30s and you want to wear a wavy and messy hairstyle, then this hairdo is for you. Many girls want to try out straightened hair but still have the desire to have natural hair. Yes, the help of a blow dryer and curling irons can give that kind of appearance, but this look will be new. When you want to try something new and crazy, remember that loose pigtails are for you. Loose pigtails are a great alternative to tight curls or braids because they look less stiff and more natural. And the best thing is they're easy to achieve with almost any face shape. This hairstyle is perfect for oval, round, and triangular faces as it flatters these face features ideally, and will work nicely with straight, curly and wavy hair textures.

Loose pigtails can help give your face shape a youthful bounce if you have thinning hair. Loose pigtails are also easy to maintain, making them perfect for both short and long-haired women. For most people, a change in style is often preceded by a change in hair color. Consider playing with your color when you are ready for a new look. The best thing about blonde hair is that it enhances almost any type of complexion or skin tone. If you have brunette roots in your hair and want to try a new look, you can do so with blonde highlights. You can use a professional styling product and hairspray to get styling easier, have fun with different pigtails and see what kind of looks you can create for this look. This wash-and-go 'do requires minimal styling, but regular trims are required to keep the ends looking blunt and healthy.

Styling Steps

1. Part to the Left

step 1

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

2. Apply Mousse

step 2

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

3. Scrunch Hair Dry with a Diffuser and Fingers

step 3

Lift your hair up with your fingers and move the diffuser up to the ends, motioning the diffuser to the scalp in circular movements. Make sure the blow-dryer speed is on low and try not to completely dry the hair off. Leaving a little bit of moisture will allow the hair to dry naturally.

4. Scrunch Moulding Cream Through Hair with Fingers

step 4

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then tilt your head forward and scrunch your hair.
