A cute and easy braided heart hairstyle, perfect for Valentines Day! We love that this 3d half-up heart is more of a "grown up" heart hairstyle for teens and women to wear (as well as for little girls of course.)
This particular heart style was inspired by a hairstyle we posted a few years ago (which has become quite popular) called the "fairy wings braid" and as another variation, the "arrowhead braid." This heart design was formed using basically the same technique, with a few slight changes to form the heart shape. We are loving the "puffy" 3d effect which shows the heart from all angles!

Obviously this would be a cute hairstyle for Valentine's Day, but this style could also be worn for other occasions. I'm thinking this would be adorable for a wedding (flower girls, bridesmaids, etc.) or for school.
Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- 2 small hair elastics.
- An alligator or claw clip to help keep the hair sectioned and braided while you are working.
- Finishing hairspray, pomade, gel, etc. (optional)
- If you are having a hard time keeping your heart in place, you may want to add a couple of bobby pins to the finished look.
