    I am growing out dye and lenght. My hair is i and very fine...I also usually resemble a 12 year old. So why not make this hairstyle before bed and show it to the LHC I hope I will at least encourage others

    To me, "pigtails" *are* braids, specifically two of them, one on either side of your head (high, low, french/dutch, more to the back or more to the side, etc., up to you). Two ponytails are just... two ponytails.

    I grew up with them being akin to Cindy Brady pigtails (my hair did the same thing as the pics of Cindy below, but with no fringe/bangs thanks to my natural curls) that were reminiscent of coiling pig's tails. And being the 60s and 70s, they got looooong on people, coiled or not. And going even further back, the 50s were full of Western movie cutesy pigtails, bobbing ponytails, and Indian (Native/Indigenous American) braids/plaits being a separate entity again. (Ponytails were the singular tail of hair from the back.) Now it's all over the place thanks to regional blending--see wiki here (I've never heard them called bunches, though!).





    GG, your braids are rather thick, and I love how the colour variations shine.

    Awwww.....looking at the braid thread....both of mine wouldn't be as thick as one strand of theirs....some are doing 5 strands

    My hair is so wispy, these sleep braids and an english (also to sleep ...or bun) is all I can manage

    Yes, I consider pigtails to be the Cindy Brady variety but I won't be wearing those. For some reason I don't balk at braided ones but unbraided feels childish or just weird.
    Mine used to curl like that as a kid, too. And then in high school I would twist them as they dried and my friends referred to them as "tubes." It was fun.
