How to do a heart braid
Section your hair.
Begin to braid.
To do this, cross the left outer strand under your centre strand, then weave the right outer strand under the new centre strand.
Continue doing this, adding hair from underneath to your outer strands. Just remember to curve your braid as this will help create your heart-shaped braid.
Switch to a lace braid.
With this braid, you need to add sections only to one side of the braid, instead of on both the sides.
Editor’s tip: To keep your heart plait looking neat, you’ll need to make sure to weave tightly.
Switch to a regular three-strand braid.
Combine & set.
For a seamless heart, you can conceal the elastic by taking a small piece of hair from your ponytail, wrapping it around the band and tucking in the end behind the braid.
To finish, set the whole look in place with the VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray, so that it lasts all day.
Psst… If you don’t want to wear your hair down, you could always fashion your mane into a chic ponytail. Nonetheless, whichever way you decide to wear this gorgeous braid, we’re sure you’ll look fabulous.
