(Last Updated On: February 26, 2019)


What You’ll Need:

  • Wide-tooth comb
  • fine-tooth comb
  • decorative hair clip
  • ponytail holders

Step 1: Start with damp hair  that has been thoroughly conditioned. Try So Cozy Sweet Strawberry Conditioner ($11.95). An ultra-gentle formula, it brings out the natural body and shine of her hair.
Step 2: Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle the hair. Then, use a fine-tooth comb to part the hair down the middle of the head. Clip one side up right above the ear.
Step 3: On the other side of the part, use the fine-tooth comb to gather a thin section of hair from the crown. This section should measure about two inches from the hairline to the top of the head.
Step 4: Divide this section into three, and begin a French braid at the crown, 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 ears.
Step 5: 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 6: Unclip the hair on the other side of the part and repeat the process. Secure with a ponytail holder.
Step 7: Join the ends of the braids together in the back, fastening them with a decorative bow or ponytail holder to create the bottom point of the heart.
