A double heart Valentine's day hairstyle!heart braids that we posted for Valentine's Day back in 2009 (before we started doing video tutorials.) In the original style, the hearts lay diagonal on her head and we braided the hearts instead of twisting them like we did here. But, the concept is basically the same. We have used hearts to make a "French Braid" look, which is why we have named this one the "heart French braid!"
As you can see, we created 2 hearts, and ended the style in a ponytail. Of course, you can make as many hearts as you want to. If you make the sections smaller, you should be able to fit in a few more before you run out of space on her head. This style could also be finished with a bun or braid instead of a ponytail. Whatever you prefer.
I'm thinking this hairstyle would be cute for Valentine's Day, or for a flower girl at a wedding.
- 5-6 small elastics (you will need more if you are going to make more than 2 hearts.)
- Ribbon or bow (optional)
- Water, gel, or pomade to control flyaways
