Hanging Heart Ponytail

Quick and easy heart hairstyle for Valentines.  Hanging heart ponytail tutorial.

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

Half-Up 3D Heart Hairstyle, Valentine's Day Hairstyles

3D Heart Hairstyle Tutorial

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.
We have been "hair blogging" for 8 years now! And during each January/February of those 8 years, we have posted several heart shaped or heart themed hairstyles.... which adds up to a lot of hearts. I actually counted up 25 heart hairstyles on our site so far! So, if you are looking for more Valentine's hair ideas, be sure to click over to see all 25.

3 Heart Ponytails! Valentine's Day Hairstyles

3 heart ponytail hairstyles for valentine's day, video tutorial

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 #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)

4 Strand Rosette Heart Hairstyle For Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day hairstyle. 4 strand rosette heart hair tutorial.

Looking for Valentine's Day hairstyles? We have one more for you today! You'll love this romantic half up, half down 4 strand braid rosette heart hairstyle.

The basic technique and concept for creating this type of heart hairstyle (by wrapping the hair around 2 ponytails at the top of the heart) is nothing new and has been a popular Valentine's hairstyle over the past few years.  We love this base style and thought it would be fun to try it with a 4 strand ribbon braid and love how it turned out! We thought the "swirls" at the top of the heart looked like little roses (or rosettes) and the ribbon really makes the heart "pop."  You'll notice that we used fairly thick ribbon and made loose braids for "fluffy" looking roses and a pretty "lace like" heart shape.  If you use thinner ribbon and braid tight, your heart will come out more distinct and uniform looking, which is also a beautiful variation.

My daughter was wearing braids the night before we filmed this hairstyle to create some no-heat waves and texture.  This style would work great with straight hair, wavy hair, or curly hair.  If your hair is shorter, you could make the buns at the top separately and then start a new braid beneath the bun on each side to form the rest of the heart.

Pretty heart hairstyle for Valentine's Day. 4 strand rosette tutorial.

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle: 
  • 3 small, clear hair elastics.
  • Several bobby pins.  We used miniature pins from Sally Beauty Supply (affiliate.) We have found that smaller pins are easier to hide in delicate styles like this.
  • Ribbon.  We used about 2 feet on each half of the heart.

Valentine's Day Hairstyles, 4 Strand Ribbon Braid Heart

Yet Another Braided Heart Hairstyle!
Valentines Day Heart Hairstyle Tutorial

If you have been following our blog for awhile, you know that we have enjoyed sharing Valentine's Day Hairstyles each year since 2008 (many of which have incorporated hearts.)  Of course, this year is no different. Hope you aren't all tired of hearts! I think Valentine's day is probably our favorite holiday for hairstyling.

Interestingly, this "4 strand braid heart" was actually the very first hairstyle/photo we shared on Instagram when began our account last February.  (Yay for almost a year on there!)  We had a few requests for a tutorial when we posted the style last year, so I thought it would be a great hairstyle to create a video for this year.

In our video tutorial below, we show how to make a 4 strand ribbon braid which we used to create this heart.  Of course, any type of braid could be substituted if you want.  I just love the pattern of the 4-strand.  It has a very delicate look to it, adding to the sweetness of this heart hairstyle.  ;)

A couple variations of this heart hairstyle are shown in the photos below:  In the photo on the left, 2 ribbons were added and we made 2 braids on each side, for a double heart look.

The heart on the right was made the same way (as shown in our video) except thicker ribbon was used to form the braid.  Amazing how different ribbon can change up the whole look of the braid and style!

2 Easy Heart Knot Ponytails, Valentine's Day Hairstyles

2 easy heart ponytail hairstyles for valentine's day

We wanted to share one more heart hairstyle with you this year before Valentine's day! Although as you can see, we actually ended up with 1 heart ponytail and a bonus 2nd style as well, which sort of looks like a heart too.... or just a fancy braided ponytail that could be worn any time!  ;)

The first heart ponytail in our video is inspired by a hairstyle we saw on facebook recently, which unfortunately had been shared with no link back to the original creator that I could find.  We love how simple, quick and cute this braided heart ponytail is.  Definitely one that could be a DIY!

Heart knot hairstyle tutorial. Easy!

The second style in our video is a variation of the first.  We added a simple French twist on each side of the ponytail for some extra texture and volume.  We love how this 2nd ponytail turned out, but the heart shape is not as defined as the first style (since the braids are partially hidden under the twists on each side.)  Although this is not one of our best braided hearts, we thought the hairstyle was still super cute for many other occasions, so decided to share it anyway.

Supplies needed to recreate these ponytails:
  • 1 medium size clear elastic
  • 1 small, clear elastic
  • 2 temporary hair ties or clips
  • Topsy Tail (optional)
P.S. We purchased the topsy tail (affiliate) shown in our video online. The one we bought is made by "Conair" and seems to be of better quality than other cheaper versions we have tried (which tend to break easily.)

Elastic Braid Twist Heart Hairstyle Tutorial For Valentine's

Elastic braid twist heart hair tutorial.  Cute and easy Valentine's Day Hairstyle.
Looking for Valentine's Day hairstyles? You'll love this beautiful twisted heart, elastic braid, romantic half-up hairstyle.

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.

  • Finishing hairspray, gel, pomade, etc. (Optional)

Streaming Heart Hairstyle For Valentine's

Pretty streaming heart hairstyle for Valentine's Day, Video tutorial
New streaming heart hairstyle tutorial. One of our best and favorite Valentine's hairstyles so far!

Hey guys, this week our hair tutorial is on this beautiful "streaming heart" hairstyle.  We have combined a feather braid (you could use a waterfall braid if you prefer) and a braided heart to create this lovely half up design. 

This style would be great for Valentine's day, school, a formal dance (Prom / Homecoming) church, weddings, special occasions, anytime during February, flower girls, etc.  We created this look with older girls and teens in mind, although it would be adorable for little girls as well. I would not recommend this hairstyle for high activity days or sports as it is quite delicate.  ;) If you want to make this style more "activity friendly" you could always add a bun, ponytail, or braid with the remaining hair at the bottom of the heart (instead of leaving her hair mostly down.)

Triangle Braid Or Heart Braid Hairstyle

Triangle or heart lace braid video tutorial, Valentine's day

The intention behind our hair tutorial today didn't originally start out with the idea of a heart hairstyle in mind.  Truth be told, this hairstyle came about without any plan at all! I just started braiding one day, and this is what was created.  But, after the Princess wore this style for the first time a few months ago, we couldn't help but notice that this braided design really resembles a heart shape! So, we decided to save the tutorial for now... since Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  A fun Valentine's Day Hairstyle!

Triangle/heart lace braid

Of course, this half-up ponytail style doesn't have to be just for Valentine's.  This style can be worn as a triangle shape braid for any occasion, really. This would be a cute hairstyle for school, church, recitals, communions, flower girls, etc. 

We chose a regular 3 strand lace braid for our tutorial today, but you could also create this style using a Dutch braid, 4-strand braid, fishtail, etc. if you prefer.

Triangle or heart braid tutorial

As mentioned in our video (below) if you want the design to look more like a braided heart instead of a triangle, you can stretch out the edges of the braid along both sides (at the top) to more fully bring out the heart shape. In the photo below, I stretched the edges of the braids along the top of the arches of the heart, as well as one small spot in the center (along the bottom of the braid) to form more of a definite heart shape. Also, if you want to include all of the hair into a ponytail, you can... or finish it off with a braid at the bottom as shown. It's up to you!   

Cute heart braid hairstyle tutorial for Valentine's Day

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • Hair tie or clip to temporarily keep the braids from unraveling while you work.
  • 1 medium size elastic 
  • Ribbon or other accessory (optional)
  • Pomade, hair spray, etc.  (optional)
