Shamrock Hairstyle – Matching Pigtails

Shamrock Hairstyle

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, it’s fun to show your pride whether you’re Irish or not. This shamrock hairstyle is one of the cutest styles you can create for St. Patrick’s Day. When you’re on the hunt for St. Patrick’s Day hairstyle options, this is one to try.

For this particular style, you will need a Topsy Tail hair tool. I used the Topsy Tail to create this fun and cute St. Patrick’s Day hairstyle.

A Topsy Tail helps you effortlessly create a range of fun and simple updos. You can flip, wrap, twist, tie or twirl with a Topsy Tail hair tool. This particular one comes in 2 sizes with elastics & instructions for how to create your perfect pony, braid, & more.

  1. Place your hair in low pigtails. My advice is to spray it down with water or a leave-in conditioner.
  2. Divide the hair (on top) into 3 sections. I make the middle one a bit thicker so that the “top” of the shamrock will appear bigger.
  3. Take your Topsy Tail and place it underneath the ponytail to create the 3 sections of the shamrock leaves.
  4. Follow how I work the Topsy Tail in my video above to create the shamrocks.
  5. When completed bring all the hair together into a ponytail.
  6. Add some green to make it even more fun for St. Patrick’s Day.
