Hanging Heart | Valentine’s Day Hairstyles

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.

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!

  2. I did his on my step daughter this morning before school. She loved it. The only problem I had was they kept wanting to flip back over. So I put a little hair spray in them and they staid fairly well. They werent there anymore when I picked her up from school. 🙁 Maybe Ill try it a little different next time.

  3. Wow!!! I love all the braids you make and thanks to you i learned how to do many things but specially the french braid and the waterfall!!! thanks!! i dont know if i wrote the words fine cause im from puerto rico and im 10 years old

  4. I love these! I did a variation of this one today for my daughter’s belated v-day party at school. I made two hearts on the top of her head and then pulled the rest of her hair into a pony tail. Turned out super cute and everyone at her school loved it!!
