E-Commerce Solutions SEO Solutions Marketing Solutions
I hope you guys are ready for another DARLING hairstyle tutorial that’s perfect for #Valentine’sDay! Heart hairstyles are seriously some of my favorite looks to create. They’re so easy, and they look so cool! What do you think of Kilee’s beautiful, blonde hair??
I love this time of year, because I get to play with so many different #heart hairdos. You guys have to trust me when I say they look SO much more difficult to create than they actually are! In addition to being easy to create, they are also very versatile. I would create this style on any of my kids (ages 7-19), or even myself. Anyone can pull off this look! ❤️
Step 1: Step 1: Pull the hair up into an elastic (start about an inch above the ear), and wrap hair around the elastic to hide it.
Step 2: Thread a topsy tail upside down, and pull the ponytail through it. (You can use your hands, but the topsy tail makes it easier!)
Step 3: Flip the topsy tail, and pull the ponytail through (towards the ceiling).
Step 4: Divide the ponytail into 2 even sections.
Step 5: Starting on the right section, begin to stitch a normal, 3 strand braid. Create 3 stitches.
Step 6: Begin to pull small pieces from the front of her hair into the braid (only adding in to the right side). Do this 4 times.
Step 7: Continue a normal 3 strand braid down the ponytail.
Step 8: Repeat steps 5-7 on the left section of hair.
Step 9: As you get to the end of the left section braid, join the two braids together. Secure with an elastic.
Step 10: Fluff up the top of the braids to really accent the shape of the heart (only the top stitches).
Step 11: Secure the heart with a bobby pin to help it pop up even more!
Items Needed: Elastics, topsy tail & bobby pin (if desired)
Time Requirement: 10-15 minutes
Skill level: Medium
