We chose a rope braid specifically because of how perfectly it accents and frames the parted heart ponytail, without overpowering it.Young girl outside modeling Rope Twisted Heart | Valentine's Day Hairstyles

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 3 small hair elastics, hairspray and accessory {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 8-10 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by parting the hair straight down the middle of the head…
  2. Next, starting on the top/back of the head, begin parting a half heart using the rat-tail comb end and using straight line as a middle of the heart…
  3. Now part the second half of the heart on the other side of the part line…
  4. Tightly gather all hair from the heart part, secure it with an elastic near the bottom at the point of the heart, and leave alone for now…
  5. Now, take all remaining ungathered hair on the left side of the part line and secure it out of the way…
  6. On the right side, beginning at the top of the head near the inner eye, begin a rope twist and continue this twist along the hairline, near the ear, around the head and down to the nape of the neck…
  7. To do this, you create a rope twist by taking only two strands, twisting both sections in the same direction {either direction is fine as long as both strands are the same}…
  8. Then take those two strands and twist them around each other in the OPPOSITE direction than the one the individual strands were twisted…
  9. Now add in hair into both strands, twist them both in the same direction, and then twist the two strands over each other in the opposite direction {continue until you run out of hair to add into the twist}…
  10. Secure with an elastic.
  11. Repeat Steps 6-10 on the left side of the head.
  12. Lastly, take both rope braid ends, and create another rope twist with them
  13. Then wrap the rope braid up around itself into a bun at the base of the heart, and secure with bobby pins..
  14. Add hairspray or accessory {as desired}.
