Bunches

A young girl with her hair in unbraided bunches.

Bunches (also called twintails, angel wings, two ponytails, dog ears, or pigtails) are a hairstyle in which the hair is parted down the middle and gathered into two symmetrical bundles, like ponytails, secured near the scalp. In some English-speaking regions, this hairstyle is referred to as "pigtails," but in others, the term "pigtails" applies only if the hair is braided.[1]

The style is often given to toddlers and young girls, and is sometimes also worn by teenagers and young women.

International

  • In Japan, hair bunches are called 'twin tails' (ツインテール tsuin teeru). A popular variation is the odango hairstyle, in which each ponytail is partially coiled around its base to form a small bun from which the remaining length hangs free.
  • Schoolgirls in India customarily wear their hair in a pair of long braids, with the end of each braid looped up and fastened to its base with red ribbon.
