Quick and Easy Heart Ponytail

Here's another fun V-Day hairstyle from last year.....

A Valentine style that is quick and easy! This one took me 8 minutes and that's including the time it took to curl the pony!!5 minute heart braid
Step 1. A simple pull through on top.
2. Make a low pony (leaving the hair from the pull through out) and do 2 braids with the top half of the hair in the pony. 3. Bring the braids up and position them into the shape of a heart. When you get them the right length on both sides, secure them together with an elastic.
4. Secure the heart onto the hair from the pony on top with another elastic.
5. Now, add one more elastic at the base of the pony to keep everything together.
Add a bow if you want. I just used some spare ribbon I had hanging around the house and tied a bow with each piece.

  2. I think the only thing that may be confusing is you say to include the top 1/2 pony in the low pony. Then it is confusing when you try to say to lock the top of the heart with the hair from the top pony. The video explains it perfect! Thanks!

  6. This is so adorable. You make it look so simple and perfect. Your daughter must be so patient to sit there and have you do her hair all of the time. Then again, who wouldn't love to have awesome hairstyles all of the time that look lkike a professional made them. Where do you come up with these hairstyles?

  9. I really love the look of this one... I'm going to try it out tomorrow... see if my daughter's hair is long enough... but this one looks very doable with shorter hair as long as you make the heart the right size and use bands to section off the hair to get it up into a puffy braid up till that point...

    I'm trying to figure out if I could do what I KNOW you could.. pull the ends down through the ponytail that is at the base of the neck before attaching.. I'm wondering if that would make it look a little bit more like a heart at the base... not sure.

  10. this is a great one... I found with bangs that we're growing out and the hair only being a couple inches below her shoulders... I had to do a part from ear to ear first... that kept everything in the pull through long enough to connect the braids to...

    and I did the low pony higher (more typical pony height) so the braids would be heart shaped...

  18. I did it with about the same amount of hair at the top today... instead of parting ear to ear... and it worked better... I got the pony even higher, so the heart looked PERFECT all day long... the last time, it kind of sagged halfway through the day.

    I did a reverse pull-through, though, because I figured (and was right) that with less length to work with, it made it easier to keep that out of the way.

  19. My 16 year old saw this and wanted me to do it to her hair on Valentine's Day and all of her friends were asking how she did it! You might be getting a lot of traffic from the teenage set!
