Next to the main characters, I also found Sissy Spacek, around 23 yo in pigtails as pregnant Sarah in s2e2 (pic 1) and another teen girl as Indian with a black wig at a stage play (season 2 as well).
I like Sissy Spacek, often playing nice farm movies and sometimes wearing bib overalls.
Main entry, rating 10 (Elizabeth, Mary-Ellen and Erin)
At the carnival, especially in Cologne, there are very often women, (teen) girls and some men (Dreigestirn: Jungfrau, traditionally played by men, except the kids, Kinderdreigestirn there are real girls) wearing very long pigtails. Either dark or blonde. Not sure about boys. Some pigtails might be wigs, but most are probably real pigtails.
There are different characters. First, Tanzmariechen, then Jungfrau, Bärbelchen (blonde) and maybe some more. And of course the costumes like Pippi Longstocking.
Currently, I don’t have better pics, so I use this pic from my overalls blog (Kinderstunk und Ziegenbart 2008), Kinderstunksitzung (rating 4).
Tanzmariechen usually dancing and doing acrobatics and the pigtails often flipping or hanging upside down.
Update: This year I watched carefully to the pigtails. Most (except for the wigs) pigtails are at the back of the head instead of the sides. I wonder if they are somehow attached with pins, needles or braces or just plaited. Maybe it’s a rather modern way of plaiting. And sometimes one pigtail is at the front (shoulder) and the other on the back. Not sure if this is on purpose or by coincidence. Probably rather a coincidence, at least when dancing.
In season 7, 13 yo Elizabeth wearing shorter but thick pigtails and medium blue bib overalls. Pic at 2h22 on disc 3 ep 11 (12 in Germany). Also shown completetly front+rear.
Another good scene at 2h57.
More infos and pic, also of earlier episodes on my bib overalls blog.

There’s also this girl (Esther ?) in blonde pigtails (pic from ep 1). Also a woman (Nadja) in a dark, long braid. Probably some more.

Also new on my bib overalls blog (teen boy, rating 3).
One more pic of this original Argentinian series. Pic from 1998 ep 138 (Chiquititas 98) showing 2 older darkhaired girls. Not sure if these are just shoulder braids or 2 pigtails. At least nice long braids.
Great series, main entry rating 6
Also on my bib overalls blog rating 3.
Chiquititas Brasil (1997) also coming soon.
Next entry in January.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers!
This blog has very few visitors. Around just one or 2 hits each day. The high peek are also just 4 and maybe even include spammers. I wonder why. My newest blog has much more visitors. I don’t know if I should continue this blog. 6 blogs are a lot of work.
I’m still very busy with my new shiny shorts blog.
So please prepare for less frequent blogging. So probably not daily, but maybe once a week or even less or when I found something very interesting.
Same for my Western blog. I currently don’t watch Westerns or movies with very early settings.
Please help by commenting and suggesting movies!
And check out my other blogs, which sometimes include pigtails as well.
Searching for Erin in pigtails in later seasons (I have very briefly checked some parts of season 3+4 but haven’t found anything), I found a guest star and also Elizabeth in looped pigtails.
Pic 1 from s3e15 friend of Ben (I don’t remember her name). Pic 2 from s4e2.
I didn’t remember Elizabeth in looped pigtails. Obviously very rare. And Erin is rather rarely shown or in the focus. I noticed her once in not braided pigtails.
Mary Ellen also in pigtails in season 3 (disc 5) but looking similar like in the main entry.
I have to recheck seasons 1-4 or 5 again (and season 8+9) also for more supporting actresses, especially at school. I’m currently still watching season 6.
Main entry rating 10
After rechecking this movie for my sailor suit blog (next to the girl I also found boys in sailor suits), I also find a plaiting scene. But she interrupts it.
I wonder why there are so few plaiting scenes in movies.
Main entry, rating 5
Another update of this great series LHOTP. This time showing Laura in looped pigtails. Maybe she wore them more often like that than first assumed. Also showing again blonde Olga.
Pic 2 showing another, older girl in looped, dark pigtails from s1e1. Funny glance.
There are some more girls in pigtails at school. I still need to check the complete series also for scenes showing plaiting or pulling pigtails.
Also coming soon the spin-off “Father Murphy”.
Main entry rating 10 at
Some more interesting girls and scenes in this series. Again all pics from the compilation DVDs.
Pic 1 showing I think Monika (played by Franziska Stürmer) in ep 100 (season 2).
Pic 2 showing little Emely (Paula Schramm) helping braiding (or similar) teen girl Manuela (Emely Neubert). Emely (Paula) also wears looped pigtails in s4e1 (ep 170). Another plaiting scene of 4 girls in ep 183 (coming soon).
Pic 3 showing farm girl Sylvia (Kristin Bohm) in ep 181 (s4).
Pic 4 showing the upcoming child care worker Nadja (Judith Klein) in ep 233 (season 5) in rather short blonde pigtails or maybe one single shoulder braid.
