Simple Heart Hairstyle with Glitter Gel

I’m officially obsessed with using glitter gel on any hairstyle that I can! It’s a great hair product to use when you’re looking to add some sparkle to a hairstyle. This simple heart hairstyle was the perfect hair tutorial to use it on for Valentine’s Day.

Simple Heart Hairstyle with Glitter Gel

simple heart hairstyle

When it comes to creating hearts in the hair, it’s a SUPER EASY hairstyle to do. I remember thinking when Victoria was a little girl that I couldn’t wait for her hair to grow long enough to create little hearts. They’re such a sweet hairstyle for any time during the year, but especially during Valentine’s Day.

I’m all about this hairstyle because it’s one of those hairstyles that you can create quickly and easily. It will not take you a long time to do, which is why I love this hairstyle even more. The easier, the better.

If you’re not a fan of glitter gel, don’t worry! You don’t have to use it on this simple heart hairstyle. To be honest with you, it’s such a cute one that it literally can stand alone without even ribbons or bows. It’s just really elegant, pretty, and adorable for Valentine’s Day (or any time during the year!).

Hair Products I Used for the Simple Heart Hairstyle

Here are the exact hair products I used to create this simple heart for Valentine’s Day.

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.
