Happy Valentine’s everybody. Hope you know that you are loved and even if you don’t have a significant other to celebrate with, that you can celebrate yourself and your own self-love. Or don’t celebrate at all…. either way is ok. But! If you do, and you have kids keep reading for a cute Valentine’s hairstyle to send them to school in.
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.

- Part the hair in half like you were doing 2 pigtails. But you only have to go until about the crown of the head.
- 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.
- Repeat this on the other side. Secure.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- Repeat this on the other side.
- 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.
- That’s it. A cute Valentine’s Heart!!
