I’m just in love with hairstyles that go along with the holidays and heart hairstyles are the easiest and the most fun for me. There’s nothing like creating something in Victoria’s hair that makes people smile. Valentine’s Day is just that PERFECT time of year to really have some fun!

Step-by-step Heart Braid Hair Idea:

  1. Start by creating a half up hairstyle.
  2. Reverse topsy tail the section.
  3. Take the section you just topsy tailed and divide it into 2 equal sections and braid down each one of those sections (*I use hair styling cream to keep the hair smooth, I will share below!).
  4. Once you’ve braided each section, hair tie the 2 braids together to create your heart.
  5. Gather all of the hair and hair tie it at the bottom of the heart.
  6. I love to add a red ribbon or bow here!

It really is one of my all-time favorite hairstyles!

Hair Products I Used for this Hairstyle

These are the exact hair products I used for this hairstyle. Feel free to drop a comment below with any questions!

Hair Elastics

These are the Teenitor hair elastics I’ve been using lately. I was recommended to use them and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Victoria’s hair is on the thicker side, so I need to make sure I have hair elastics that will hold the hair and be extra durable. I also want to make sure the hair elastics won’t damage or crease the hair.

best hair elastics

  • Strong and stretchy: The elastics are not so thin that they break when you try to stretch, but they are not so thick that you can’t stretch them properly. They have stayed in very fine, soft hair through days of gardening. Also, they slide off the braids when grabbed and pull off clean. No rolling and catching the hair to make knots.
  • Great deal: This is a great deal on 2000 pieces clear rubber elastic hair bands, enough for braiding different hairstyles. You can keep a couple dozen in your purse, another couple dozen in your gym bag, some in your car…you get the idea. Any time you realize you need a hair tie, you’ll have a stash.

The best part is that you get 2000 for under $7!

Hair Styling Cream

It’s the one question I get asked the most lately, and I love it. It’s important to make sure you prep the hair before you create a hairstyle. I love to use hair styling cream because I know it will help to keep the hair smooth and shiny.

I prefer using Dae Hair Styling Cream.
