We’re excited to share another Valentine’s Day heart hairstyle with you today. This one uses the same technique you use for our Knotted Fishbone braid hairstyle, so if you’ve tried that one, this will be a piece of cake!
These hearts can really be started anywhere on the head, but to keep it simple, we started them on the left side of her head. We’ve also done them on the back of the head pulling hair from each temple and secured the heart on the back of the head.
Here’s our short video showing how we do it, and below you’ll find step-by-step instructions & more pictures. We hope you love this one!
Step 1 – Make an off-center part on the right side of the head
Step 2 – Divide out a section of hair near the left temple
Step 3 – Divide out another section of hair near the crown toward the end of the part
Step 3 – Like you would in a fishbone braid, draw a small amount of hair from the far right side of the right section of hair. Bring it over to the left section of hair.
Step 4 – Do not add it to the left side though. Bring that small amount of hair from the right side, under and then up & over the top of the hair on the left side.
Step 5 – There should be a “hole” in between the 2 sections of hair now. With fingers from your right hand, pull this small section of hair through the hole to create a “knot” or loop around the left section of hair.
Step 6 – Add those ends back over to the right section of hair again.
Step 7 – Next take a small amount of hair from the far left side of the left section of hair and pass it over to the right section of hair.
Step 8 – Pass it under and then up & over the top of the hair on the right side.
Step 9 – With the fingers from your left hand, pull this small amount of hair through that center “hole” drawing the small amount of hair back to the left side.
Step 10 – Secure the hair just below the “loops” with a colored elastic
Step 11 – As necessary, gently pull on the top of the rounded part of the “heart” to adjust the size and shape of the heart
Here’s a more up close look at the 2 hearts. You can make these really small or bigger if you wanted!
And if you’re running short on time you could just do one and be done! Here’s a few more pictures of just 1 heart if that’s the look you want.
