From ages two by means of six, my hair was in pigtails for what I am estimating was practically 50 p.c of the time. The identical most likely goes for fairly just a few little ladies, previous and current. And if I am being completely sincere, I have not worn my hair in pigtails since I used to be just a little woman. However regardless of how common the fashion is among the many kindergarten set, that is not why I have not tried them in maturity; it is simply that I am completely horrible at doing my very own hair in any means apart from down. Elle Fanning‘s wonderful coiffure on the pink carpet this weekend could have me giving pigtails a shot quickly, although.

Fanning attended the premiere of her new movie Galveston on the Deauville American Movie Pageant in France on Saturday, sporting a customized cream and yellow Miu Miu robe with a crystal bow at her waist. The bow theme continued in Fanning’s hair, with child blue ribbons on the base of low, tucked-under pigtails — however they had been something however childish. The 20-year-old actor, who was given the pageant’s New Hollywood award, regarded glamorous from head to toe; the pigtails made the look extra elegant, not juvenile.

“For Elle’s pigtails, we used a reference from an outdated picture she had of a 1950s coiffure however up to date the look to really feel younger, recent, and trendy,” says stylist Jenda, who used Oribe Straight Away Smoothing Blowout Cream and Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil to blow out her hair. “After, I used unfastened, lengthy elastic to safe the pigtails in place. I want to make use of this technique as an alternative of hair bands as a result of I can lower the elastic to any size I would like, and extra importantly, I don’t want to maneuver my hand whereas it securing in place.”

After the elastic was wrapped across the base of Fanning’s pigtails, Jenda secured the ribbons over the elastic. “We thought the child blue would complement the gown and add a pleasant pop of shade,” Jenda tells Attract in regards to the accessorizing alternative she made with Fanning, who additionally wore all L’Oréal make-up. “Lastly, I rolled the lengths of her pigtails, tucking and pinning them in with bobby pins. A last spray with Oribe hairspray and voilà — stylish pigtails!”

It is probably not an updo generally seen on celebrities, however with Fanning proving pigtails might be a lot extra than simply cutesy, I would not be stunned if turns into a red-carpet development. On the very least, I do know I am going to give them a strive once more.
