Continue to make V shapes all the way to the bottom of the hairline, be sure to make each V the same approximate size. Keep the hair separated by brushing it to opposite sides of the neck.

Tie the right side in a temporary ponytail so it stays parted on the correct side. Take the hair on the left side and brush it upwards, making a high ponytail on the left side of her head. Using a brush, smooth out the ponytail and secure it with an elastic.

Stylist Tip: Make the pigtail line up with the back of her ear, high on her head. This will ensure that you will have two even pigtails.
