Double Hearts

There are a ton of cute Valentine/Heart 'dos going around right now, so I thought I'd do my part. Now, I haven't searched long and hard, but this may have been done somewhere else. I kind of took THIS idea from Jamie at Jackie and Kassies Sweet Hairdos and did my own variation. So, here goes!

Start by making two pony tails. I like to start my part on the side then jig over to the middle. I think side parts are more flattering...but maybe that's just me :)

Split each pony into two sections and braid them both.

Now, take a bobby pin and slide it through a section of the braid where the top of the bump will be. Then, push the bobby pin into the hair above the elastic taking care hide it as much as possible. Do this for both sides of the heart.

Now, take a tiny clippy and bring the two braid ends together to form the point of the heart. As you can see from this picture, I braided down a little too far and you can see my elastics under the clippy. The goal is to hide the elastics with the little clippy. Then, you can curl the leftover hair and be done!

Here's a shot of both hearts. Yeah, I know. You can totally see the bobby pin on the right heart. But, what do ya do after the picture's taken and your little squirt has run off to play hide-and-seek?

I would love to see your Valentine hair ideas. You can email them to me at joannbarber(at)gmail(dot)com. If you'd like, I can even post 'em for ya! For some other great Valentine ideas try these:

I'm a mother of 3 girls (and one boy) and seriously hair do-ing impaired. My 2 yo loved this one, and we just now did it, thanks for a cute idea explained well enough for even me! Found your site by blog hopping, and just love it! Thanks again!
