If you’re looking for Valentine’s Day hair tutorials, you’ve come to the right spot. There’s nothing I love more than sharing pretty and cute hairstyles for Valentine’s Day that I love to do in my daughter’s hair.

My heart braid is one of the most popular hairstyles on my social media, so I decided to take it one step further and create 2 matching ones as pigtails. This is a sweet and cute Valentine’s Day hairstyle that would work on medium-to-long hair.

I just love this hairstyle so much and it’s one that I love to do in Victoria’s hair. It really is the cutest ever and looks so stinking cute!

Hair Products for this Hairstyle

Here are the exact hair products I used to create this hairstyle.

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.
