They're back!
How Katy, Rihanna and Kendall are Rocking Pigtail Braids They're back!

A new staple for your look to become on point is one you've mastered since grade-school slumber parties: The Braided Pigtail.

This year, our beloved plait has been updated and remade to suit every cool girl in us. Even Cara Delevingne rocked the Pippi Longstocking look in the DKNY Fall 2015 campaign.

Put your plaits to the next level, and double up - three ways:

1. Top with a turban.

2. Go crazy with bobby pins.

Leave it to RiRi to put her own spin on a beloved hairstyle. Add some (or a lot) of bobby pins for an androgynous look. And don’t be afraid to excessorize! Layer on chunky necklaces or beads in different colors to cop her Coachella style.

3. Bun up your braids.

Kendall was a fun-loving Princess Leia at baby North's 2nd birthday party, where she rocked loose braided buns. Just don two pigtail braids, then run the ends back through the hairtie to create two messy buns. Be carefree, and match it with a smile! For a detailed look of her hair, see this image from Harper's Bazaar.
