Easy Pigtail Hairstyle for School

There was a time when all Victoria wanted to wear to school were pigtails. It was hilarious because she didn’t just want “regular” pigtails, she wanted “fun ones” (and I quote). I quickly became a “hair expert” in pigtails. If you love pigtails, too – here’s an easy pigtail hairstyle for school.

I’m all about easy in the mornings when it comes to Victoria’s hair. If you’ve been following us for a bit now, you know this to be true. I don’t like anything complicated. I like everything simple and quick in the mornings.

This easy pigtail hairstyle for school is great because it doesn’t require ANY braiding or anything hard. I love that this only requires a quick topsy tail (and you don’t need an actual topsy tail tool to make this one work, although it would help!). It’s super simple and one that anyone can do (I, promise!).
