Triple Heart For Short Hair Too!

I'm thinking this Valentine's hair style might even work for those of you with short hair cuts as well as long! Well, probably not shorter than a bob (let's be realistic) but fairly short hair! :)

You could do lots of variations with this one as well. This would be darling with just one heart, or two, or maybe you could fit four? You could even make a second row of hearts underneath, or finish it off with some pigtails. The options are endless!

Anyway, make as many sections as you want across the side of her head and secure with elastics towards the bottom of the sections.In each of the sections, do a reverse pull through (going up through the bottom instead of over the top of the section.) Lay the ends of the ponytails out of the way and make three more little sections underneath.
Split the hair in the pull throughs in half and twist each piece. You'll want to twist the section on the right clockwise and the section on the left counter clockwise. (So that both pieces are twisting away from the middle.)Form a heart shape and secure the ends together with another elastic over the ponytail directly underneath.All three hearts completed.....Of course, add some curls if you want!


In case you're wondering, I created these curls using our regular old curling iron. Remember those? We haven't used ours much since we discovered flat irons. It was feeling neglected. :)

A video tutorial was requested for this style recently, so here it is:

  9. Thank you!!! My two daughters and I cut our hair for Locks of Love a couple of months ago, and I've been longingly looking at all the Valentine's hairdos we did last year, knowing we don't have the length for any of them this year. I think this one might work, though! I'm excited to try!!!

  13. you know, it also worked for me (as long as I twisted tightly) to not do the three sections underneath... just an elastic at the end of each hart... I DID then use an elastic to connect the ends of the hearts to just to do what those bottom 3 sections would have... keep them from flopping upside down.

    I'm going to try it with the 3 bottom sections to do piggies after... but my daughter wanted her hair down with this do today.

  14. I did this one this morning and my daughter LOVED it. I did the top 3 the way you said but then made a braid with the three sections and pulled it back and wrapped it around a pony as I ran out of time to curl and have a girl who likes to hang upside down! We LOVE your hairstyles, thank you for sharing!!!! :)

  16. I just did this to my daughters hair and she loves it. She has very short and very thin hair; I was only able to make one heart. I secured it with a cute clip instead of another pony. Look so cute on her. Thank you!

  17. I tried it! I'm so glad you shared this one. :) I'd be honored if you took a peek ... http://curlyqshairdos.blogspot.com/2010/02/valentine-hearts.html

  18. Excelentes tutoriales, la ventaja de tener el cabello largo es que se pueden hacer infinidad de peinados. Es posible hacer algún tipo de peinado para niñas con cabellos cortos?. Gracias

  19. Very cute idea! I will have to try this on my little girl's hair. She has short hair, but I'm sure it will work.

  20. Am I the only one have trouble getting the heart shape to stay after I secure the bottom?

    ReplyDelete
  21. the key to get the heart shape to stay is to pull the hair tight after you do the pull through (so the band is snug closer to the scalp)... then twist the twists TIGHT... then they will naturally want to hold a heart... I don't even have to shape them first... just twist.. pull forward, place the band, then let go and it springs into shape... then you can secure to the other pony or or do something else... today I did it with the lower row and then chained the lower row together in a puffy braid so I could pull it all back into a pony with a cute fancy elastic - http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v332/kat_k1/2010%20pics/1-January/TripleHeartIntoPony3.jpg - But yesterday I just secured all the bottoms of the hearts together into a small pony and left her hair down - http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v332/kat_k1/2010%20pics/1-January/TripleHeart2.jpg - I still need to get a curling iron or flat iron for making curls... because she wants "princess curls"

  22. Imagine my surprise today when after doing this hairdo for my daughter, she tried to cut the bands out and cut off one whole heart of hair! Bald spot and all-ready for Valentines Day.

  23. Beyond darling. I will try this for Sunday!

  24. Virginia, Oh no!! I'm so sorry to hear that! I hope it grows quick for you. :)

  25. Super cute & easy too. I did this on both my 5 yr old & 2 yr old - and both got LOTS of compliments. It took a little getting used to to get the twists just right & connected to the lower pony, but by head #2, I had it down. I even took red temporary color hairspray & sprayed just the heart. Only downside is the 5 yr old's mind of her own not letting me do this for her school party today. Should have waited until later in the week to try it, then it would have still been "new"! :)

  26. I'm so sad! I've been working on this for 20 minutes now and my hearts are NOT rounding! I can't seem to get an elastic in there without the hearts rounded parts straightening. :(

    ReplyDelete
  27. did this on my 4 year old, a single one on my 2 year old's bob, and a simple version on myself! Never got so many compliments on my own hair;)

  28. April, How frustrating! Did you ever get it? It looks like you weren't the only one who had trouble with this one. If I'm still around doing this next year I'll have to make a video. :)

  29. This hair art is amazing! I'm so excited to try them on my 7 year old daughter!

  30. I just did this on my 7 year old today, she loves it. We then tied her hair in a ponytail with a big pink ribbon, and added glitter hairspray.

  31. I know it's way late for this, but I was having the same problem with the sides of the hearts straightening out. If you intertwine the hair together (sort of like your chains) they'll hold their shape better :)

  32. Tried this today, with some variations, on my three girls. It turned out so cute! I posted pics on Facebook, and linked back to your blog. Thank you so much!!

  33. So soo cute! Definitely trying this one on Thursday! Thanks for sharing!

  34. Gave my twin girls this hairdo today. Instead of 3 hearts, I just did 2, and that helped to be able to see the heart shapes better. Thanks for sharing! :)
