DIY it: "It is all about balanced sectioning with this look," Fugate started. "Part hair where you want it. For this one, we did a side part, but when we sectioned off the pigtail, we ensured that they were the same in size. Feel the density of your hair as you pull the tails back, as you don't want one pigtail looking strong or one wimpy."
After parting the hair, spritz a lightweight oil like Kérastase Elixir Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil ($58) all over. This not only adds shine, but also helps in the securing process of the pigtails — making it easier to pull back and eventually wrap the hair. Secure the tails at the nape of the neck, and make sure it looks super parallel. "The closer they get together, the cooler," he added.
