Thanks to Hailey Bieber, everyone now wants to wear pigtail braids again. The romantic, playful braided hairstyle is therefore guaranteed to be the trend hairstyle of 2022.
Hailey Bieber wears "pigtail braids" and makes them the trendiest braided hairstyle of 2022
Let's prophesy: The trend hairstyle for 2022 will be a braided hairstyle called "pigtail braids". Why do we want to know this so precisely? Because stars like Hailey Bieber, Elsa Hosk, or Kendall Jenner can be seen with this hairstyle again and again – and not just at Coachella.
Because that brings us to the keyword: the festival season has started and the looks are getting more creative again. In terms of hair, that means bye, blow-dry, and hello, braid. After all, hardly any other hairstyle reflects such a playful lightness. The hairstyle itself is also easy – even for otherwise rather untalented hairstyle creators. Simply divide the hair, which should be at least shoulder-length, into two sections and braid as desired: loose, tight, forwards, or towards the back of the head.
Of course, the wheel is not reinvented with this trend hairstyle either. After all, many of us have worn braids before - when we were children. The two loosely braided pigtails on the left and right were already super practical and super cute at the same time. Nothing has changed to this day. And while a few years ago it was more the boxer braids that were braided strictly backward, this year it can be a little looser or more playful.
The comparison between Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Kim Kardashian shows how different the “pigtail braids” can be worn. While Hailey Bieber wears her “pigtail braids” loosely, wears them almost at the back of her head, and casually lets a few strands fall over her face, Kendall Jenner uses the stricter version.
Her accurately braided “pigtail braids” emerge from two plaits tied at the back of the head and the hair lies very sleek on the head. In combination with the white baggy pants and the crop top a cool nineties vibe.
A third variant of the "pigtail braids" we find at Kim Kardashian. She wears her long black mane in a slightly messy version with an almost tousled crown.
We also spotted a similarly loosely braided variation on model Elsa Hosk, who was showing off her “pigtail braids” at the Revolve event on the sidelines of Coachella 2022. However, with a sophisticated twist: the braids were wrapped with a rose-colored ribbon. Definitely worth imitating!
