Today our Valentine's Hairstyle tutorial features 3 cute heart shaped hairstyles which all start out using the same technique. The basic concept and idea for these heart ponytails (& the original first ponytail shown in our video) was inspired by an awesome Instagram account called "Ice_Braids." We loved how simple and cute this ponytail looked when we first saw it, so we had to try it.... and we wanted to add a couple of variations of our own to the mix just for fun.
All three of these heart hairstyles would be cute for Valentine's Day, a flower girl, or any time you want to wear a heart in your hair. ;)
Hairstyle #1, The Braided Heart Ponytail. (Find step by step instructions for all 3 styles in our video tutorial below.)
Hairstyle #2, The Ruffle Braided Heart
Hairstyle #3, The Lace Braid Heart Ponytail
Supplies needed to recreate these styles:
- Topsy Tail (The "topsy tail" shown in our video was purchased online and the brand is "Conair." If you are looking for one, you might try Ebay or Amazon. I have also seen them at Walgreens and Claire's occasionally.)
- Medium size elastic for the ponytail & small elastic to help hold the heart in place
- Ribbon (for hairstyle #2.) The ribbon we used is 1/4 inch and came on a roll in the Walmart craft section for around 50 cents.
- Bobby pins (optional)
