Most often, I dress my twins alike but do their hair differently (they're both girls). One looks better with one ponytail, and the other looks better with two. This was super handy a few weeks ago at a picnic, when one wandered off. I could tell the other adults at the picnic, "She's dressed like this (indicating first twin), but with two ponytails." BTW, my twins aren't identical, but they have similar coloring and size, so people that don't know them well might mix them up. Thankfully, we found her pretty quickly, but it was nice to know that I could give the searchers an easy way to quickly identify her.
