Heart Hairstyles for Girls: 3 cute dos you can pull off for Valentine’s Day

Try one of these heart hairstyles on your daughter or granddaughter!

Sure – Valentine’s Day is considered a romantic holiday, but we also think it’s a day to share some sweet moments with your kids and grandkids!

Studio 5 Style and Beauty Contributor Megan Moore shares how to create charming heart-shaped braids and other themed hairstyles.

Braided Heart Pigtails
Best for long hair

  1. Divide hair down the entire center of head, and secure in two low pigtails just behind the ears.
  2. Begin braiding a standard three section braid and secure with elastic after 3-4 inches
  3. Next, split the remaining tails into two equal sections, and braid each section individually to the bottom and secure.
  4. Flip the larger braided section upwards bringing the first and second elastics together, forming a small loop, and then secure the bun you formed with another elastic. Your smaller braids should now be headed upward towards the sky.
  5. Bend the smaller braids back down in an arch shape to create the heart, and secure with elastic at the ‘point’ of the shape.


Half Back Heart

  1. Secure a half-up pony with first elastic.
  2. Gently separate the hair into two section above the elastic creating a small ‘hole.’
  3. Fish the pony up through the underside of the hole, so the tail is now directed towards the sky (a reverse topsy tail).
  4. Next, separate the tail into two equal sections and twist them towards the face into ropes
  5. Bring the ends together creating a heart shape, and secure with a second elastic.


Space Bun Hearts

  1. Secure your preferred 1 or 2 triangle shape sections at the top of the head and pull elastic snug against the scalp.
  2. Add a second elastic about 1/2 inch away from the first on the pony tail.
  3. Next, split the ponytail in two equal sections above the second elastic and bend the tails into an arch to form the heart shape desired.
  4. Pinching the base or ‘point’ of the heart shape with one hand, use the other hand to secure the heart with another elastic around the base of the first elastic.
