Publish date:

We love the beautiful and playful designs from Cozy's Cuts For Kids. Founded by Cozy Friedman, you can find everything from cute wavy up-do's to stylish curls. A few months ago we even had the chance to learn some cool hairstyles with Cozy herself on the Today Show. For Valentine's Day Cozy shared with us how to crate the must-have look for Valentine's Day with the chic Heart Braid. Check out the step-by-step guide on how to create this beautiful look for your little girl.

The Heart Braid

What You'll Need: Wide-tooth comb, fine-tooth comb, decorative hair clip, ponytail holders

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 ears.

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 ends of the braids together in the back with a decorative bow or ponytail holder to form the bottom point of the heart.
