Valentine’s Day Hair Idea

If you’re looking for a cute Valentine’s Day hair idea, I’ve got you covered. This is a super simple and easy one that you’ll love!

Valentine’s Day Hair Idea

Valentine’s Day hairstyles are so much fun to do, especially if you have kids on the younger side. It just makes this Valentine’s Day season extra fun because there are so many different heart hairstyle ideas out there.

I’m all about sharing as many Valentine’s Day hair tutorials as possible this month so that everyone has some options when it comes to beautiful and easy hairstyles for the day of love. You’ll see that I added a fun hair product to this hairstyle – red glitter gel! It’s my favorite!

I love this particular hairstyle because you don’t have to have the longest hair to make this one work. You could easily do this once with shoulder-length hair and down. I also love hairstyles that don’t require any braiding, too. I know not everyone is great or comfortable with braids, so this helps.

Half Up Heart Hairstyle

This heart hairstyle is a cute one because you can create this on one side or both, you choose! I created it on one side of my Victoria in this video, but it would look just as adorable on both, too. I hope you like this one! I even add some red glitter gel for some extra fun, too!

Step-by-step Tutorial:
1. Create a part down the middle (or do a deep side part if doing to one side).
2. Add a hair elastic to this section.
3. Do a reverse Topsy Tail to this section and let the sections fall after they’re pulled through.
4. Take the sections and shape them into a heart (make sure the hair is equal on each side).
5. Add a hair elastic to keep the shape.
6. You might want to add a bobby pin or two to make sure the heart keeps its shape.
7. Add a ribbon, bow, or glitter gel!

As you can see, this is such a cute and simple hairstyle. I love how it looks when it’s done. Perfect for any Valentine’s Day celebration!

Hair Products Used for this Hairstyle

Here are the exact hair products I used for this particular hairstyle. If you have any additional questions, please drop me a comment!

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.
