When I was told to write an article about sexy female movie characters in pigtails, I thought it was going to be a walk in the park. After all, I have Google, so how hard could it be? I was sure I'd be able to easily pull up countless examples of hot women in film wearing the Lolita-like hairstyle. Turns out I was only half right. While it was easy to find hundreds, if not thousands of pics, it was like pulling teeth to find those that weren't "adult" in nature. I'm not saying that there aren't a lot of examples in mainstream movies, but searching for them is damn near impossible because all of the search results are overwhelmed by porn. I suppose that at the end of the day, sifting through a bunch of porn stars in pigtails in search of hot mainstream actresses is at the low end of the annoyance scale. But it was a challenging endeavor, none the less.

If you have a great example I left off, leave it in the comment section, and I'll add it on our honorable mention list. Otherwise, enjoy 15 sexy movie characters sporting pigtails.

Jennifer Schwalbach Smith as Missy - Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)

Jennifer Schwalbach (now Jennifer Schwalbach Smith) isn't really that hot by Hollywood standards. She's not bad looking by any means, and I'm sure she wouldn't give my ugly ass the time of day. But the fact remains that if she wasn't banging Kevin Smith, she probably wouldn't have been in this film. That being said, when you throw a semi-attractive woman in a black-leather bodysuit and put her in pigtails, it instantly ups her hotness level.

Marcy Rylan as Winnie - Bring It On: All or Nothing (2006)

I'm not going to lie to you and pretend I actually saw this film. In fact, before today, I had never heard of Marcy Rylan. But while sifting through a sea of barley-legal girls in pigtails, I came across this photo, and I was so happy to have found something mainstream that she instantly made the list. As an added bonus, she's hot.

Anna Faris as Shelley Darlingson - The House Bunny (2008)

In the house bunny, Anna Faris plays a Playboy Playmate who is kicked out of the mansion and forced to live in the real world. Fortunately for her, the "real world" turns out to be a sorority house in desperate need of a makeover. Fortunately for us, she dresses like a slut and wears pigtails.

Brigitte Bardot as Maria I - Viva Maria! (1965)

Brigitte Bardot is hot. Pigtails are hot. Ergo, Brigitte Bardot wearing pigtails is extremely hot, even if it's in a horrible a French comedy that was filmed on the cheap in Mexico. Keep in mind, this film predates the internet by about 30 years, so guys had to take hotness wherever they could get it, even if it meant sitting through shit like this.

Reese Witherspoon as Annette Hargrove - Cruel Intentions (1999)

Update: In my first attempt to describe Reese Witherspoon's character in Cruel Intentions, I gave the wrong information. Apparently, I confused her for one of the other characters. Because I honestly don't give a damn about this film, I'll just admit I was wrong, and leave it at that. So just stare at the picture for a while, and move on.

Raquel Welch as Fathom Harvill - Fathom (1967)

Fathom, a horrible spy film from the 60's, is basically just an excuse to show off Raquel Welch in hot pants and low-cut shirts. At this, it succeeds. At everything else (plot, acting, etc.), it fails. But you can't really argue with those pigtails.

Alicia Silverstone as Cher Horowitz - Clueless (1995)

The pigtail scene from Clueless has a lot in common with Alicia Silverstone's career. It was incredibly hot, but it was over in about ten seconds. ZING! I'm such a bitch.

Emily Browning as Baby Doll - Sucker Punch (2011)

Emily Browning plays Baby Doll, a 20-year old who always wears pigtails. Who does that? No wonder they locked her up in a mental asylum. It might also have something to do with the fact that she accidentally killed her sister, but let's not split hairs.

Carrie Ann Inaba and Diane Mizota as Fook Mi and Fook Yu - Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)

Austin Powers has been with a lot of women. As such, it takes a lot to impress him. Luckily, two pigtailed Asian girls named Fook Mi and Fook Yu seem to do the trick.

Christy Hartburg as SuperLorna - Supervixens (1975)

God bless Russ Meyer and his ridiculous sex-ploitation films. This poster of Christy Hartburg in pigtails might be the greatest thing on the planet, now that her actual breasts have grown old.

Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale - The Wizard of Oz (1939)

When she filmed The Wizard of Oz, Judy Garland wasn't yet 18, which makes her appearance on this list a little creepy. But we added her anyway for one simple reasons: all these years later, whores still love to break out the pigtails and dress up like Dorthy at Halloween. For that, we all owe Garland a debt of gratitude!

Vanessa Marcil - Carla Pestalozzi The Rock (1996)

It's been 15 years since I saw Vanessa Marcil in The Rock. And for all these years, her sex scene has stuck with me. It might have something to do with those sexy pigtails. Or, it might have something to do with the fact that while I was watching it, my mom walked in on me humping the couch, and then immediately had a heart attack and died. Either way, it's a sexy scene, from a classic film.

Christine Taylor as Kate Veatch - Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004)

Christine Taylor looks hot enough in that dodgeball uniform, but the pigtails really put the icing on the cake. Looking at this picture makes me want to throw a cinder block at Ben Stiller's head for being such a lucky son of a bitch.

Natalie Portman as Evey - V for Vendetta (2006)

When Natalie Portman was a young girl, I desperately wanted to have sex with her. That's not nearly as creepy as it sounds, since at the time, I was about the same age. But now, when I see her dressed up like a young girl, like she did in V for Vendetta, I still desperately want to have sex with her. I mean, look at those pigtails! Don't judge me!

Salma Hayek as Serendipity - Dogma (1999)

It seems that almost every hot-female related list we make ends up involving Salma Hayek is some way. I guess that's not surprising, since she's an incredibly hot female. Even so, it's nice to see that she's multifaceted enough to appear on both our bikini list and our pigtail list. Not all hot actresses can pull that off. At any rate, this scene from Dogma is probably the best part of the film, which isn't saying much.

Honorable Mentions
