Comment: At least this teen girl in very long pigtails but only of parts of her hair. I don’t remember her name. Pic from ep. 4. I think also touching her own pigtails. Probably wearing jeans?

Also on my shiny shorts blog, (boys, mainly older teens) rating 6 (updates soon).

I rarely watch my DVD set. The boys are too old, except for ep. 1. Mainly of interest of teen star Tommi Ohrner.

Comment: Several girls at school at different age in pigtails. Different actresses in different seasons. Most and best scenes in seasons 2+3. Western(-like) setting in the 1910s or earlier. Nice dresses (mainly in season 1)

Pic 1 from s1e4, pics 2+4 from s2e5 showing a teen girl in long pigtails who touched (the top of) them. One younger girl in pic 4 sitting in pink (white appearing) clothes has long, dark pigtails on the back of her head (“modern style” braided).

Pic 3 showing a very young, blonde girl in s3e6. Behind her another, a bit older girl who is very good.

Not sure about women and braids.

Currently running on German’s Bibel TV. Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 5) and soon on my other blogs.

Comment: I think 12 or 13 yo Victoria Lozar in quite long, blonde pigtails but in few episodes, also in unbraided pigtails. Pic from episode 5. Also in bib overalls (other blog rating 6).

Not bad but there are better series and movies.

Few good scenes, so rating 4-5 only.

Comment: Betsy Gay (“Our Gang“, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938)“) in long, blonde pigtails.

I like long, blonde pigtails, but I think rather few scenes here. Unfortunately, she did few movies.

Rating 6.

Great movie with several good scenes. Starring Jonathan Brandis.

Rating 6, but I have to recheck all episodes more carefully.

Comment: Finally another pigtail pulling. As usual at school by a mean boy. Jordan-Claire Green (pictured) as 12 yo tomboy Emma often wearing blue bib overalls.

I didn’t remember this scene, and there must be another pulling scene, I think outside the class. I found it on my backups, searching for better (other) pics for my overalls blog (rating 7 as well). More pics and infos there.

Rating 6-7 for now.
