Hey guys! Sorry for it being a bit quiet around here. Migraines are becoming the “norm” lately, and when they hit, I obviously just have to succumb to dealing with that and neglect things I’d rather be doing! But have no fear – we’re back with another cute Valentine’s Day hairstyle. This hanging hearts hairstyle, was something I actually came up with just after Valentine’s Day last year, and I’ve been waiting a whole year to share it! It’s not overly hard, and it turns out so pretty. Also, don’t forget we have many other cute Valentine’s Day hairstyles & heart hairstyles in our archives, so check them out HERE.
Here’s our short video tutorial for this cute Valentine’s Day hairstyle. If you have issues watching it here on our blog, go HERE to watch it on our YouTube channel. See below for more instructions and pictures of the finished hairstyle.
1- Draw hair back from both the left and right sides of the head. Join them together in the back center of the head with an elastic.
If you’re working with thinner hair, you could do a full half pony, parting hair from ear to ear and making a half ponytail in the back. You don’t want the hearts to be too thick, so I wanted to work with less hair. Because her hair is fairly thick, I just took a bit of hair from each side to form the ponytail.
2- Divide the ponytail into a left a right section to create a half knot, as if you are tying your shoe.
If this ponytail is still too thick, divide it into a top and bottom section first. Then only work with the top section. Then divide it in half so you have a left and right section. That’s what I did when doing this style, since McKayla’s hair is thicker.
3- Make a second half knot, crossing one section over the other, and pulling it through the hole.
4- Draw the ends together and secure them with an elastic.
5- Now begin to form your heart shape by gently tugging on each side above the elastic. Gently pull on things until the heart takes shape, and it is the size you want.
6- Next, section out hair from each side of the head just below the hair you’d pulled back in Step 1. Draw it back to the center back of the head. Join these 2 sections of hair together and secure with an elastic. This elastic should be just below the elastic at the bottom of heart #1.
7- Repeat Steps 2-4 to make a second heart.
8- Gently pull on the hair to make a 2nd heart shape that hangs below the first one.
9 – Adjust hearts as needed and spray with hairspray to help things stay secure.
