Curly Pigtails with Lots of Volume Hairstyle Tutorial Instructions.
I love pigtails but I like mine to have a lot of volume in them so here’s the method I use.
Two versions of pigtails!
Start by making to high pigtails.
Keep in mind that the finished product will be slightly higher than where you’re placing the bands.
Spray some heat protector through them.
Curl the ends of them in whatever method you like.
Just make sure the curls are all pointing in the same direction.
I’m using a mini hair straightener because that’s what I find easiest.
You can also do the same thing with hot rollers and pretty much anything else as long as the end results have them curling in the same direction.
Twist the curls together to form one big one.
You may need to brush through it to smooth things down.
Then twirl around your finger to regain the shape afterwards.
Flip the pigtail over your head.
Pin to the scalp just above the elastic band.
It might need a few pins to hold it in place.
And you want it to be really secure.
Flip it back over and fan out.
You can even add a small hair piece underneath the band to puff it out even more.
Repeat on the other side.
Curl, flip, pin, fluff.
If you need to you can tease the underside to stop it splitting over the pins.
This style always reminds me of manga characters.
For another version of this which is even more comicbook-ish twist the hair just above the curl.
And pin it right behind your ears.
It forms two buns with curls coming out under it,
Repeat on the other side too of course.
Definitely an out there kind of style but I think it’s pretty fun!
Having a curled fringe would look be really cute too.
I hope this was a useful video, please check out the blog post linked in the description for more information and other tutorials.
Thanks so much for watching!
