twisted heart hair tutorial for kids.
my hairdresser sent me a similar picture to this hair style and insisted i do a “how to” on this look for valentines day. it might be a little dippy, but if you can’ t be dippy on Vday when can you be dippy?
1. we started by spritzing ruby’s hair with a styling spray and some texturizing spay to help hold the curl and make it slightly more boho. we used this surf spray from target.
2 & 3. we curled all of ruby’s hair with a curling iron, curling away from her face and leaving about 2 inches of the ends straight.
4 & 5. next, make two small ponytails and secure with clear elastics. the trick to this is to get the ponytails close together. we tried this several times until we got the distance just right, i say about two inches apart should do the trick.
6. now, twist each bunch of hair until it curls up and outward, forming half a heart.
7. secure hair with three bobby pins. one right where the twist connects with the elastic. one at the arch of the heart. connect the two half hearts with an elastic and bobby pin where it forms a cute full heart. we considered adding a cute small bow here as well. in full disclosure we only had a pink clear elastic so i photoshopped it out but use a clear one and secure with a bobby pin and it will look great:)
5. spray with lots of hairspray. we like the look of texture and beachiness to the hearts so we poked and fluffled the heart to create more texture and interest.
and just because…
