Twin tails are one of the best anime hairstyles.

Not just anime. They're pretty cute in real life, too.

While I think having a national holiday for them is a bit silly, we have just as many here in the States.

Celebrating a cute hairstyle? Bring it on. I love the variations on the style.

I always thought pigtails had to be braided, unbraided they were ponytails? I guess the Japanese don't see a difference between braided and unbraided twin tails?

I don't think it really matters if it's braided or unbraided these days.

One of the girls in the website gives the double whammy of twintails and fangs. I wonder if she's a tsundere? lol.

Ha, this is completely awesome! Now I wonder if anyone is adventurous enough to try out a holiday celebrating the quad-tail style that Yotsuba or Temari sports...

the model from the article is pulling it off... but it think it depends on model.

Are you sure this isn't being sponsored by Toei Animation, since Miyuki Hoshizora (the lead character in the new Smile Precure! TV series) wears her hair in a short twin pigtail style? Wink

Hey, even if it was, that would certainly be some shrewd marketing, wouldn't it?

I'm honestly surprised that it took this long for Hatsune Miku to show up in this thread Very Happy I have a friend that commented on her popularity by saying that she practically belongs to the Internet now: intellectual property holdings by Yamaha not withstanding, of course.

If you don't mind me asking, though...why is she sitting on a leek?

I wear them frequently with no problem at all. I think you have to the right temperament.
