This easy hairstyle would be perfect for school, work, Valentine's Day parties and dances, weddings, and other special or casual occasions. And the best part? You don't even need to know how to braid! This style was created by using a series of ponytails (which we call an elastic braid) to create a "french braid effect" without having to braid at all.
Elastic Braid Twist Heart Hairstyle, Video Tutorial (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)
We used a simple twisting technique to place the heart in this hairstyle. If you would rather braid or rope twist each half of the heart for a slightly different look, feel free to do that instead. Also, as mentioned in our video tutorial (above) we chose to leave this as a half up, half down hairstyle. But, you could keep going with the elastic braid (or any other type of braid) to the ends of her hair, or add a ponytail, or bun at the bottom of the heart for more of an updo look if you desire.
Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- Several small hair elastics
- Topsy Tail (optional, although it does make this style easier.) If you are wanting one, they are on sale right now on Amazon: Topsy tail link (affiliate.)
- Finishing hairspray, gel, pomade, etc. (Optional)
