DIY: Heart Shaped Braid for Valentine’s Day

Heart shaped braid

How cute is this heart-shaped braid from Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair? It’s meant for young girls, but us “big girls” can rock this look too. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

What You’ll Need:

  • Wide-tooth comb
  • Fine-tooth comb
  • Hair clip
  • Ponytail holders

15 minutes

Step 1: Starting with damp hair (either towel-dried or misted), use a wide-tooth comb to detangle the hair.  Then, using a fine-tooth comb, part the hair down the middle of the head.  Clip one side up right above the ear.

Step 2: On the other side of the part, use the fine comb to gather a thin section of hair from the crown.  This section should measure about 2 inches from the hairline to the top of the head.

Step 3: Divide this section into three, and begin a French braid starting at the crown and curving toward the temple, then toward the back of the head, like the top lobe of a heart.  You will be lifting hair into the braid only from this side of the part.  Leave no loose hair in front of the ears.

Step 4: When you reach the center part at the back of the head, secure the braid with a ponytail holder.  If the hair is very long, end the braid about midear; the ends will hang down the back.

Step 5: Unclip the hair on the other side of the part and repeat the process.  Secure with a ponytail holder.

Step 6: Join the ends of the braids together in the back with a ponytail holder to form the bottom point of the heart.
