Hanging Heart | Valentine's Day Hairstyles

February 01, 2011

We posted this heart hairstyle two years ago in photo tutorial format, but we never filmed a video for it. This is such a simple fun style for girls of all ages, that we wanted to be sure to upload it before Valentine’s Day this year.

Hanging Heart (Side View)

The options here are endless, as I hope to show in a few more videos later this week, but on this specific hair style you may opt to microbraid the two heart strands. I left them as twists, because they seem less “kid-ish” that way.

Also, I believe this heart hairstyle looks fantastic on straight or curly hair. In the previous photo tutorial, my daughter’s hair was straight. In this video tutorial, I added volume to her hair via the subtle curls left over from our Double French Braids style (we call this using a previous day’s style to create another… a “Second-Day ‘Do“).

The shape of the heart and whether the tail is longer or shorter, can be adjusted in any way you want (teens tend to want thinner strands and longer tails). You could even buy the colored hair spray and color the strand pink, if you wanted, for Valentine’s Day!

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, Topsy Tail Tool, pomade, two clear elastic bands, and ribbon (if desired).

Time Requirement: Under 5 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

If you like this Valentine’s Day hairstyle… be sure to let us know!

Happy Hairdoing!

Your Valentine's Day Hairstyles!

February 21, 2010

As promised, I am posting the photos you all provided of your little cuties’ hairstyles on Valentine’s Day. It was very clear which hairstyle was everyone’s favorite!

The photos provided below are from the following amazing moms: Alissa, Carie, Cathy, Karalee, Laila, Leah, Lisa, Lynelle, Marie, Misty, Rachel, Shawn, Shelley, Violet, Isabel, Jodie, Katie, Kelly, Manda, Marilin, and Melinda.  A big, wonderful “thanks” to these ladies and those little cuties! (If anyone else has a photo of their heart hairstyle, feel free to email it to me or post it to our Facebook Page.)

There was such a good response on these hearts, that I think we should do it also for St. Patrick’s Day!  Be sure to take a look at our St. Patrick’s Day Hairstyles from last year and practice them up!  We received tons of comments on them from everyone!

Happy Hairdoing!

XO Valentine's Day Hairstyle

February 13, 2010

Here is my last Valentine’s Day hairstyle for 2010, and it requires a little bit of “creativity” to see it! It is a little out there… so I did this on my #3 daughter last week as a test to see if people at school could figure it out, and everyone did.  In fact, some of her teachers took pictures.  It took a bit of practice to get it, so I explain some of what I learned in the video tutorial below.  Here it is…

XO (Hug & Kiss) Hairstyle

Items Needed:  Brush, comb, spray bottle, 5 elastic bands, and 3 ribbons

Time Requirement:  20 minutes

Skill Level: Hard

Also, don’t forget our other Valentine’s Day Hairdo’s!  Be sure to email photos of your V-Day do’s or simply post them to our Facebook page!
