Making 2 half pigtails

1. Make 2 half pigtails

Start off with a center part. Then tie up 2 half pigtails that are evenly spaced, toward the middle of your head.

Then, insert a blue, faux hair piece into the first pigtail.

2. Split and twist

Split both the blue hair and the pigtail in half, holding the blue with the regular hair in 2 sections.
