We had posted this Valentine’s Day hairstyle two years ago, but in photo format. Many have requested that this be shown as a video tutorial, so here you go! It also helps for me to be using an updated camera as well!

Double Heart Twists (Side)

There are actually two ways to finish this heart hairstyle, one by using twists as I have done (better for older girls) and the other in braids (popular with little girls). Both are equally cute and provide just a little bit different of a look.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this cute hairstyle! I sent my Kindergartner to school all Valentine’s week with this style. The first day her teacher sent me an email in the middle of the day telling me how adorable her hair is. She told me that she sent her to the principal’s office just so all the ladies in there could see her hair. Apparently the heart-do was the talk of the school. My daughter was so proud and excited, and I felt wonderful to be able to give her the style behind it all. I used to be hair incompetent, but you have been a life saver to me!! I have learned so much from your tutorials. You have really opened up a whole new world for me. i just can’t thank you enough!

  2. Such a cute and easy idea. I wish I’d run across this about 3 weeks ago, in time for Valentines Day. We will be giving it a try soon.

  3. I ran across your site on Pinterst and I just have to say thanks for the cute idea and the helpful tutorial. My daughter _thrilled_ to show off her fancy Valentine’s Day hairdo to her kindergarten class. She had a dentist appointment after school and the staff took pictures of her hair!

  4. I can’t wait to try this on my little girls tomorrow. I am terrible with hair but I think I can pull it off. It will beat the pony tail they get every other day!

  5. I thought this was done with braids (it had been a while since I watched the video) and so that was how I did it. It turned out so cute. Lots of comments.

  6. sorry i ment to say funny my mom is doing that to my hair for v day and she never saw it on a site she figured it out on her own!!! i just found this site!!!love it!!!

  7. funny my mom is doing that to my hair for v day like that and she figured and did not even see this i just found this site!!!

  8. I try to do my sisters’ hair every now and then and let them pick out their own styles, so we went online today and tried this website. We were browsing the styles and one of them immediately loved this one. I thought it would be impossibly hard (me being only 13), but I watched the tutorial and tried it myself and it turned out well! I took a pic and showed it to my friends and they loved it! I’ll have to redo it tomorrow in her hair for church! Thanks! 😀

  9. Wow!! This is amazing! Just stumbled upon your blog and will be checking out more hair tutorials, they’re great 🙂

  13. I did this for my 6yo daughter at school today and it was a HUGE hit!! I am really not good at hair, but my daughter’s is now almost to her waist so I have had to learn! Thanks to your site I can now French braid and have learned all kinds of cool and easy styles that even I can do. But this one was the biggest hit so far…I posted a photo on FB and got tons of impressed comments. I sent them all to you! 🙂

  14. I did this on both my girls, 5 and 6, this morning for Valentine’s Day. It was so easy, and it looked so cute. They got lots of complements. Thank you so much. Please keep sharing hairstyles via video. Our family loves it.

  15. I’ve been reading your blog for almost a year now and I did this hairdo this morning for my daughter. When I went to pick her up from school ALL of the teachers in the school stopped me and complimented me on it! They thought *I* was the creative one – I informed them that I learned what I knew from a website :). Her teacher even took a picture of her hair! Thanks so much for all the hard work you do in helping us “not-so-hair-talented” moms!! It’s much appreciated!!

  18. I did this today & I can hardly believe it! I am literally all thumbs when it comes to doing hair, and this was actually not too difficult. People couldn’t believe it when they saw my little girl in church today. Thanks so much!!

  19. I stumbled across your blog from an ad I saw on youtube and can I just say thank you so much! I have 3 little girls under 4 (id twins like you!) and I am hopeless at doing their hair. I was raised by my Dad who did his best but fancy was a braid with a ribbon lol.
    I watched this heart do after my middle girl Mim (2yo) saw a pic and just had to have it. I perfected it first go! I did different variations in all 3 girls hair. It was so easy! I All day people have been commenting on how great it looks. Can’t believe someone like me could do something so impressive 🙂

  20. My little girl saw this and was so excited to have hearts in her hair. She wore it today for her Valentines party at school. She got so many complements on it. It was easy and so cute! Thank you!
