7 K-Pop Stars Who Are The Reason That Pigtails Are The Hairstyle Of The Summer
It’s officially June, which means that summer weather is here in full force. Styling long hair can be a hassle in the hotter months, but not to worry – the style of the summer? Pigtails! These seven K-pop idols are proving that this light and youthful style is back in, and it’s the perfect no-fuss look for those who can’t be bothered for a complicated ‘do because it’s just too hot. Plus, they’re just so adorable!
1. Billlie’s Tsuki
Here, Billlie’s Tsuki is showing off the quintessential bouncy pigtail. The curled look makes the style seem extra youthful, and it can be achieved easily with a curling iron for those who have straight hair or overnight curling rods for those whose hair has natural texture. The bows add that extra dash of super cuteness!
2. Red Velvet’s Joy
While not necessarily the classic “pigtail” look, Red Velvet’s Joy keeps all the best parts of the style while making it extra fresh for summer. By making two braids at the side of the head and then wrapping them into a braided bun, she can keep her hair out of her face while keeping the style looking pigtail-esque. The added flower barrettes just top off the whole thing!
3. IVE’s Leeseo
IVE’s Leeseo proves that pigtails look amazing with super long hair, and by keeping the pigtails high up on her head, she adds movement and volume to naturally straight locks. The light fringe also keeps the style from looking too manicured, and the addition of the sparkly accessories at the base of the pigtails are super eye-catching.
4. STAYC’s Sieun
For those who are a little more experienced with hairstyling or just want to add a little extra something to their look, STAYC’s Sieun shows off the perfect pigtails. The top of her pigtails are sectioned off and braided behind her ears, while the rest is left to flow free. It also helps to keep the top section tamed for those who have layered hair!
If you want to let some of your hair loose but still want to keep it light and airy, Yuna’s half-and-half braided pigtails are the way to go. These pigtails are tied closer to the back of her hair, but the under layer falls more toward the front to give the illusion of an effortless, undone style. This one would also work well on shorter hair!
6. aespa’s Karina
aespa’s Karina is showing off a quadruple-pigtail look, accessorized with some beaded extensions. She has put a twist on the classic braided pigtail style by adding two smaller braids at the very front of her head with her curtain bangs falling loose. This one is super easy to achieve, but it still makes it look like you put in a lot of effort!
7. TWICE’s Chaeyoung
For those who want to match their clothes to their hairstyle, Chaeyoung’s ribbon look is perfect. It’s a little more complex, but once you get the hang of it, you can add a lot of versatility to your styles. The ribbon is tied into a bow at the top of the pigtail and threaded through and tied again at the bottom. Practice makes perfect!
