Comment: Some, mainly younger and darkhaired girls in pigtails. At least one younger blonde girl. Plaiting scenes near the beginning and touching own pigtails. Also wet hair in a creek. Most pigtails are rather short (and thin) and have ribbons (different colors).

Interesting movie. Rated R. Fantasy/Coming-of-age movie. Not sure about the time setting. Maybe 1960s or 70s?

For pigtails rating ~5-6.

Comment: One young, blonde girl with very long pigtails. Around 1m. Also wet and shirtless. I think also a darkhaired woman or older girl at least with a long shoulder braid. Maybe some more supporting actresses.

Quite interesting movie. But pigtails are thick.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: At least this darkhaired girl in quite long, strict pigtails and beige ribbons. Another interesting series by David Cobham (Bernard’s Watch, Woof, Out of Sight). Novel by BB. Pic from ep 11.

I found this by coincidence and don’t know all episodes, yet.

Nice 1920s setting and clothes. Obiously few or very few scenes. Main characters are 3 brothers. Needs to be checked for other actresses (women ?) and also for sailor suits and bedrooms or other scenes of interest. At least shirtless scenes of the boys.

Rating 6 for now. Available on DVD.

Comment: At least one blonde girl, around 11 or 12 yo in rare pigtails on the front, only plaited on the upper half and only of some of her hair. Also in unbraided pigtails and open hair. And a younger, blonde girl with pigtails and ponytail (ep 11). Pic 1 from ep 1.

Very interesting series. Also on my bedroom blog, rating 5.

For pigtails, rating 5-6 for now. Series itself rating ~7. Also soon on my bib overalls blog (girl, woman, rating 5).

Comment: At least 12 or 13 yo Saoirse Ronan in blonde, long pigtails. Often with a hat. I think set in the 1910s (WWI?) but looks quite Western-like. Also one braid on front and the other on the back, and also open hair.

Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 3) and my bedroom blog, rating 4.

I only have checked it at high speed and some time ago, so needs rechecking for pigtails including other actresses.

Rating 7 for now.

Comment: At least 14 or 15 yo Marianne Fortier sometimes in quite long, dark pigtails.

Very good coming of age movie with some perfect scenes and music. I almost forgot making this entry. I haven’t seen it for some time, but I assume rather few pigtails scenes. Not sure of some few other (younger) girls or women.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, rating 7) and my Lederhosen blog.

For pigtails rating 6, much more for the movie itself. International title: Mommy Is at the Hairdresser’s. The best scene has different (worse) music on some other dubbed versions.

Comment: At least this blonde, older teen girl, Anat Atzmon in regular, braided and unbraided pigtails. Also at least one other, dark blonde teen  girl. Probably some more girls and/ or women in this and the sequel.

I think rather few (good) pigtails scenes.

Not bad (for these days). Rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: Tineke Van Der Walle at least sometimes in long blonde pigtails. I don’t remember all episodes, but I think she mostly had a ponytail or else.

She also wore pink bib overalls and beige shortalls. I don’t like her glasses.

At least one other young blonde girl in a different Enid Blyton series (“The Enid Blyton Adventure Series”), coming soon. Surprisingly obviously no scenes in The Famous Five (1995) which is set in the 1950s. And in The Famous Five (1978) the girl wore short hair.

Rating 5 for now only. For more infos, see my other blogs.

Bib overalls rating 7 (mainly for the boy, very baggy), bedroom blog rating 4.
