Adorable DIY Hairstyle for Flower Girls

Planning a Valentine’s Day celebration? We love this heart-style braid for the flower girl. Recently, I spoke with Cozy Friedman, the founder of Cuts for Kids in NYC a salon dedicated to the lil’ ones, and she shared with me this adorable hairstyle. With love and hearts always a theme apropos for weddings, I thought I would share this darling look with you!


Heart How-To:

Step 1: Starting with damp hair, 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 two 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 midear; 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 pony tail holder.

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