Beauty Tuesdays: Breakfast at Tiffany's Inspired 'Do

The other night I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's for like the zillionith time, and remembered how much I just love that last hairstyle Audrey Hepburn wears at the end of the movie.  Here's my how-to...

I'm not talking about the hairstyle pictured in that iconic pic.  Ya know, this one:

Although I love this look as well, I think the pigtail 'do is often overlooked.

Even Blair Waldorf had her moment in these pigtails.

To achieve this look, I broke it down into three steps:

1. Backcomb, or tease, the hair at the crown of your head.  This makes that ever-so-60s bump.
2. Pull your hair back into a half-updo.  Secure it with a barrette. 
3. Divide the hair into two sections and use clear ponytail holders to hold the pigtails.

What are some of your favorite movie moment hairstyles?  Share in the comment box below!
