    I haven't worn pigtails in years since my hair is so poofy and long that it sort of reaches for each side and tangles together, so it doesn't completely stay apart! lol. I used to wear them a bit as a child I recall. Occasionally braided pigtails too back then. Now though, the closest I get to pigtails would be two side buns, although they are perhaps too low to be like pigtails, but the small side buns are one of my favorite hairstyles because they even out the weight of my hair to each side of my head instead of all in the back, but then people start asking me if I'm trying to do a princess Leia hairdo.

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!).
    .
    So they're supposed to be curled ponytails? That makes the "pigtails" thing make more sense to me (I never figured out why braids were called "pigtails" since pigs' tails aren't braided, and braids aren't curly-- except mine when I've had them wound into a bun and then take them down and they still hold the twist!). But whenever I see ponytails called "pigtails," they're always straight.

    GG, I don't think my braids are any thicker than yours.



    I just wore these out to walk the dog. I love double buns but I think loose double braids look kind of odd on me. But it was fun for a bit!
