Pigtails are not at all an attribute of a modest schoolgirl, but a fashion trend. Braids and all kinds of fancy braid hairstyles have not disappeared from the world catwalks for several years now. The reason is not only in the unconditional beauty, but also in the versatility and convenience of such hairstyles. They look equally appropriate both in the office and at a party. But the main thing: the simplest braid hairstyles can be made in 10 minutes.

In order not to really look like a schoolgirl, give up the standard braids and learn to weave stylish French braids. The French braid is braided directly from the forehead. While weaving, add strands to the main braid on both sides. If this is your first time doing this, you can ask someone else to help you. Watch video tutorials or master classes to understand how to hold the strands more skillfully and make your braid more neat.
Knowing how to weave French braids, you can experiment with different hairstyles. Here's one of the many options: Start braiding two French braids on the sides. When you reach the neck, fix them. From the remaining hair, make one braid, tuck it up and secure it to the lower nape of the head. You can use hairpins or bobby pins at your discretion: it depends on the thickness and manageability of your hair.
A braid laid around the head looks especially luxurious. This is a great option for an evening hairstyle. Braid the usual French braid, just move not from top to bottom, but from left to right (or from right to left - whichever is more convenient for you). When you get to your ear, secure the braid with invisible hairpins or hairpins.
The French braid-zigzag, or "snake" looks very intricate and original. From the outside, it may seem that it is very difficult to build something like this with your own hands, but in fact, such hairstyles are simple to perform. Part your hair into a side part. Secure the hair from the side of the bangs so that it does not interfere. In front, on the side of the parting where there is less hair, select three strands and start weaving a French braid, adding strands not on both sides, but only on top. When you reach the other side of your head, start turning the braid down and to the left. Continue braiding until you have a Z-shaped braid. At the end, secure the braid with an elastic band, lift, secure with invisibility and lay the end of the bangs on top. It remains to attach some kind of hair accessory - for example, a flower - and your hairstyle is ready.
