Simple Heart Braid Hairstyle for Valentine's Day

Simple hairstyles are the best, but they’re extra special when they’re easy to do. There’s nothing worse than a hairstyle that takes forever, especially when it comes to doing it on a child. I know with my daughter I need quick and easy.

This simple heart braid hairstyle for Valentine’s Day is a fun one because it’s a pretty braided heart and it really stands out. It’s one of those hairstyles that will catch someone’s eye, it’s that kind of cute.

Advice for this Heart Hairstyle

When it comes to hairstyles for kids, I feel like I could write a book! 🙂 We do hairstyles together almost every single day.

1. I know that it’s not always easy to have Victoria sit still, but a book, a device, or just talking time helps. Sometimes we play a game and that will help keep her still (although if you know my girl, she doesn’t like to sit still!).

2. I love using a leave-in conditioner spray on Victoria’s hair before I start. I just like to make sure there aren’t any tangles before we get going.

3. I love using hair oil, too on Victoria. It makes her hair nice and shiny and smooth to work with. I feel like this has been a huge game-changer for her when it comes to flyaways and keeping it healthy.

4. I love using hair elastics that don’t damage the hair.


I will continue to recommend the products we use and love because I think it’s important to share what people use that works.
