Comment: Some teen witches in pigtails. Pictured is probably Georgina Sherrington in very long and thick dark pigtails, also cutting them off. Also other girls (including blonde) in braided and unbraided pigtails, braids and other hairstyles. The redhaired girl on pic 2 has some parts braided.

I don’t know the complete series.

Quite interesting. But there are much better series.

I have seen a pic of Goergina Sherrington also in thinner pigtails, looking a bit younger and much better. Not sure if this is from the same series. More likely from “The Worst Witch” (1998-2001). I have to check that as well.

Rating 5-6 for now only.

Comment: Aglaja Brix (pictured in s3e13, 2003 so around 12 yo) in very long, blonde pigtails. Braided till the half. Also cutting off (some parts) of one of her pigtails (maybe a fake) in this episode.

Also other girls in pigtails. I don’t remember all episodes (currently more than 165) and all (supporting) actresses. I don’t watch this series anymore and prefer the earlier seasons. I have one more pic of another blonde girl on my overalls blog in s12e2 /ep 151 (I think Zoë Malia Moon as Stella, probably only in pigtails in this episode.

Needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 5 for now. I prefer earlier settings.

Update: More girls, even better in later episodes, like s12e8, rating 6


Story 3: Cutting off pigtails


Cutting off one or both pigtails is another, often mean thing to do with pigtails. Often done by someone else as a prank or revenge, but also sometimes done by herself or himself for one reason or another. More movies coming soon.

Pic 1 showing an Indian teen boy in “Into the West (2005)” (episode 5) cutting off his pigtails with a knife. I think also other young men in long and rather thin pigtails. Setting in the 1870s.

Pic 2 is from “Problem Child”. A girl cutting off one pigtail from another girl. Scene at 51 minutes.

Another thing is dipping a pigtail in an inkwell at school from a boy behind. Is there any movie about that? Should be in LHOTP but I haven’t found it yet.
