Valentine’s Heart Hair

Unfortunately I do not have more pictures. That is my fault, so I will try to describe each step the best I can. It truly is way simpler than it may look.

  1. Part the hair in half like you were doing 2 pigtails. But you only have to go until about the crown of the head. Valentines Heart Hair by Mixed Family Life for Multiracial Media _ 1
  2. Doing one half at a time, take the rat tail comb (makes it a lot easier), and start to part towards the front of the head and curve down towards the ear. This is the top of one side of the heart. Separate with a hair tie. Valentines Heart Hair by Mixed Family Life for Multiracial Media - 2
  3. Repeat this on the other side. Secure.
  4. Take the rest of the hair and gather into a hair tie. Smooth it down with a  boar bristle brush and some sort of hair gel or edge control. Braid it up to make heart stand out more (or a bun). Valentines Heart Hair by Mixed Family Life for Multiracial Media - 3
  5. The next part is the most difficult of this simple style. Starting at the middle of the “heart” start a French or Dutch braid. I recommend Dutch if you can to make the braid stand out more. You are going to go from the center of the head going towards the ear. Keep the braid along the part by taking hair from the front towards the part. Valentines Heart Hair by Mixed Family Life for Multiracial Media - 4
  6. Once you get to the ear, along the head, you will run out of hair to feed into the braid. Continue the braid until the end and secure with a rubber band.
  7. Repeat this on the other side.
  8. Now take both loose braids and put together underneath the big braid that is secured with a hair tie. Secure together with another rubber band. You can loosen the 2 small braids and then braid them into one medium-small braid and then secure. Valentines Heart Hair by Mixed Family Life for Multiracial Media - 5
