Valentine's Day Hairstyle: Flip-Braided Heart

January 19, 2010

*Note from Mindy:  Yes, Valentine’s Day is coming up and since we had such a positive response to the heart hairstyles we posted last year, we are posting a few new ones this year and also some videos of the styles from last year!  Everyone is looking for heart hairstyles, so don’t be left out!

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

Flip-Braided Heart

This one is very popular, and very simple to do.  Many have asked for a video tutorial on how to use the Topsy Tail Tool to create flip-unders, so this one is for you!  If you do not have a Topsy Tail Tool, you can buy one from the Amazon link in the left sidbar (or you can just bend a hanger to do the trick, although it may pull your daughter’s hair more than the Topsy Tail).  To see the photo tutorial for this hairdo from last year, please visit Valentine’s Day Hairdo #1, or simply view the video below.

Items Needed:  Comb, brush, hairspray, spray bottle, Topsy Tail tool, and 2 rubber bands.

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Check back again over the next few weeks for more cute Valentine’s Day videos and new holiday hairdos!

Enjoy, and Happy Hairdoing!

The Teen Heart | Valentine's Day Hairstyles

February 12, 2009

Option #1-
Option #2-
Option #3-
Option #4-

So after yesterday, I thought I was done with heart hairstyles this year but then I decided to do a good teen heart hairstyle. So I thought and thought trying to come up with something simple, yet sophisticated. This is what I came up with. I did the hairstyle four different ways on each of my girls. It’s all the same technique, but each hairdo is just slighly different, so enjoy!

Heart #5

Items Needed: Brush, comb, 2-5 rubber bands (the small kind, like orthodontic bands), pomade or wax product, hairspray, and ribbon.

Time Requirement: 5-8 minutes.

Option #1 -Start with DRY hair. My girls hair is slightly wavy naturally so I flat ironed it before starting. You can do your hair curly or straight. Either one will work, but I wanted it straight today so the heart stood out a little more. Part hair on left…

Gather one small rectangle of hair on the right side of part (the side of head with more hair)…

 Secure it together with a rubber band.

Now do a flip under. You do this by loosening the rubber band away from head a little. Then make a hole in between head and rubber band. Then push the hair through the hole. Flip the hair BOTTOM TO TOP. You will now have this…

Now divide flipped ponytail into two sections. Pomade both sections well. The flip will naturally force the hair to form the heart curves. Secure the two sections together with another rubber band to form heart shape…

Option #2
Use all the same steps as above, except create two rectangular shapes (parts)…

Do two flip unders and form two hearts. Again I did this on the side of the head that had the most hair (right side). I rubber banded each heart seperately and then rubber banded the two hearts together. Just to make it a little easier. So there are three rubber bands total at the end of these hearts…

Option #3-
Use all the same steps as above, except this time I created the rectangular shape on the side of head with the LEAST amount of hair (left side of part)…

This just made the heart lay a little flatter instead of poking up like in Options #1 and #2. I also added a red ribbon in the end. This makes the look less tweeny, but is a fun option for your littler ones…

Option #4-
Use all the same steps as option #1. I just wanted to show that you could do it on short hair, too. I did her heart back a little farther from her face so her bob still laid flat next to her cheek.

Happy Hairdoing!

Heart Pigtails | Valentine's Day Hairstyles

February 11, 2009

Heart #4: The Short-Hair, Little-Heart Pigtails

This is an absolute adorable little girl’s heart hairstyle!  My girls call these LuvPiggies, and they work with pretty much any length of hair.



Items Needed: comb, brush, hair spray, pomade, 2 rubber bands, and 2 small clips.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Begin by parting hair in zig-zag pattern down the middle of head…

Now part from there down to each ear. Gather up that hair and secure in a rubber band to form a ponytail…

Repeat on other side – you will now have this…

At this point, I styled the back of her hair (which required some round brushing with the blow dryer). Starting with the right ponytail separate it into two pieces. ***TIP*** USE POMADE AT THIS POINT!!! I put a bunch of pomade into the sections so they would stay firm and maintain shape. Otherwise, because her hair is layered, I would have gotten a very wispy, hair-falling-out-everywhere look. So use pomade (or any other really good waxy product)…

Now simply take the two pieces of hair and lay into place. It will just sort of naturally fall to the heart shape. Work with it until you get the desired heart look and feel…

You can have a loose heart look (by pulling hair farther away from rubber band)…

…or a very tight heart look (by pushing hair up tight against rubber band).

Use the clip to secure both ends together. Add clips or bows in the front of rubber bands and you are ready to go!

**TIP** When I was completely done, I also added just a spritz of “Got2B Glued”. Just for a little added strength. .

Happy Hairdoing!
