Pigtails hairstyle for VR

I just wanna go back, back to 1999” — Charli XCX. This is what I sing when I do my hair all playful. Seriously though. Pigtails were the cutest look ever when I was a kid. I’m glad they work for VR (Virtual Reality) because they’re coming back and for a good reason!


This style is super good for long VR sessions.

This is what I do:
1. Spray dry-shampoo in my bangs to collect sweat and oil while I’m in VR
2. Part my hair into 2 sections and tie each one to create pigtails
3. Pull the Rift straps out and apart to fit them over my hair.

Video below shows you how I quickly pull the straps outwards so I can place my Rift’s straps over and below my hair ties. Once the HMD (Head-mounted display) is on, I pull my hair up and out.

It’s actually an old video I shared back in February 2018. Thought I’d share it anyway so I can keep hair & makeup posts together in one spot. Enjoy!
