Expert Advice

How to do a Heart Braid!

What You'll Need

  • Wide-tooth comb
  • Fine-tooth comb
  • Hair clip
  • Ponytail holders

    Time: 15 minutes
Step 1:
Starting with damp hair (either towel-dried or misted), use a wide-tooth comb to detangle the hair. Then, using a fine-tooth comb, part the hair down the middle of the head. Clip one side up right above the ear.

Step 2:
On the other side of the part, use the fine comb to gather a thin section of hair from the crown. This section should measure about 2 inches from the hairline to the top of the head.

Step 3:
Divide this section into three, and begin a French braid starting at the crown and curving toward the temple, then toward the back of the head, like the top lobe of a heart. You will be lifting hair into the braid only from this side of the part. Leave no loose hair in front of the ear.
Step 4:
When you reach the center part at the back of the head, secure the braid with a ponytail holder. If the hair is very long, end the braid about mid ear; the ends will hang down the back.
Step 5:
Unclip the hair on the other side of the part and repeat the process. Secure with a ponytail holder.

Step 6:
Join the two ends of the braids together in the back with a ponytail holder to formthe bottom point of the heart.
