Many 90s trends are back now. When it comes to hairstyles, it's this nostalgic braid trend that celebs love...
Not only fashion and beauty trends from the nineties are making their way back into our hearts, but gradually hairstyle trends too. A pigtail hairstyle is particularly popular with celebrities right now - and no other hairstyle reminds us so much of our school days in the nineties as this: two side pigtails.
In the nineties, it was mainly Spice Girl Emma Bunton who made the braids (called pigtails in English) the trend hairstyle. Today, stars like Millie Bobby Brown, J.Lo, and Ariana Grande are bringing the braid trend back and showing how to style the schoolgirl hairstyle as an adult.
Millie Bobby Brown, on the other hand, wears the classic style and has two strands hanging out at the front for the ultimate 90ies touch, which beautifully frames her face.
Singer Madison Beer shows that two side braids can look quite elegant if they are worn in a trendy sleek look. To do this, comb the hair back strictly and tie the braids tightly at the top of the head. Then pull the braids through the straightening iron so that they are nice and smooth and shiny, and fix any protruding hairs with a light hairspray.
By the way, we especially like Ariana Grande's retro pigtail hairstyle. The unusual thing about her is that the braids don't hang straight down, but have been styled outwards at the ends. You can achieve this look by wrapping the ends of your hair around a large diameter curling iron or by pulling the straightener through your hair and twisting the ends outward.
If you have medium to long hair, you can also imitate J.Lo and wrap the two side braids into a bun - the so-called space buns.
Singer Ciara wears the pigtails thanks to extensions in XXL format. The trend hairstyle looks particularly romantic and playful thanks to the gentle waves.
