Our hair tutorial this week is a cute and easy heart ponytail hairstyle!
I can't believe it is already time to start thinking about Valentine's hairstyles for 2017. Over the years, Valentines and heart hairstyles have been some of our favorite styles to create. If you are looking for heart hairstyle ideas, we have more than we can count on our website, some of them dating way back to 08'! You can check those out here: Heart Hairstyles
We love that this hanging heart ponytail is quick and easy with no special braiding skills required. Perfect for school mornings!

Although we demonstrated this technique showing one single heart in a ponytail, you could add more than one heart if you choose, or add this heart as an accent to a variety of different style options such as a half up, etc. This style would not only be cute for Valentine's day, but would also make an adorable flower girl hairstyle for a wedding.
You might remember a style we posted a couple of years ago called the "heart knot hairstyle" which has been quite popular on social media. The heart shown in our tutorial today is made using a similar technique, although the knots forming the top of the heart are tied in a slightly different way. In our opinion, we prefer the way this "hanging heart" is shaped (with a more distinct point where the halves of the heart meet in the center.)
(Comparison photo below with the "heart knot" on the left and the "hanging heart" on the right.)
Supplies needed to recreate this look:
- 2 small hair elastics to create the heart
- 1 medium or large hair tie for the top of the ponytail
- Pomade, gel, or other product to help control flyaways
