Side-by-side of the "Dutch Heart 2 in 1" hairstyle.

Valentines’s Day is right around the corner! My niece Kilee came to visit, and she let me borrow her golden hair. We were trying out some heart hairstyles and I couldn’t pick just one! The #CGHDutchHeart2in1 uses 2 dutch braids, with the only difference being 1 heart at the bottom of the braids, or 2!

Items Needed: Comb/brush. elastics

  • Separate the hair into 2 even sections. Secure one section with an elastic.
  • Starting off on the section of hair that's loose, make a dutch braid.
  • When you reach the neck, fold up the remaining hair and secure it with an elastic, (Tip: Make sure the elastic is holding the hair upside down so you can create the heart shape.)
  • Divide the non-braided hair into 2 separate pieces.
  • Make a 3 strand braid on each side.
  • Secure the braid with an elastic.
  • Repeat steps 4-6 on the 2nd section of the hair you set aside at the beginning.
