Our style of the month for February 2013:

Heart Braids

Heart braids are wonderful style that can be half-up or all-up and can be done in various different ways: Lace braiding, french braiding, dutch braiding. What kind of heart-shaped braid(s) can you do?

I also saw this one posted recently from Lilith Moon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x65PoVZB9c8

It's gorgeous and i'd love to recreate it.

I love how in the Lilith one she's holding a heart shaped mirror. It looks pretty easy...

Is it cheating if you get someone else to make a heart braid in your hair?

Challenge Accepted. Operation make Naughty Mess sick with love in progress.

The Naughty Mess says, "Oh god, can you imagine what she is going to do to me!!!"

Lol at the random sticking out bobby pin. I did resort to spin pins, The Naughty mess was absolutely against this. I do not own non Halloween bows either. Pardon my bats and a skulls.

I did Lilith Moon's yesterday :) But I did a few changes; twisted the braids two times around the bases, and made three tiny braids (one in the middle of the circles and two under them) and tied all five together :) It went out quite neat I think, but I'll try to change it so I can wear it on Valentine's day when I am figure skating.

I like it, AbbaTabba! It really looks like a heart. I love the streaks through your hair (though they looked bluer last time I saw one of your pictures).

The first thing the title made me think of was this (http://www.cutegirlshairstyles.com/hairstyles/time/10-15mins/lace-braid-heart-valentines-day-hairstyles/). Will attempt it over break, but... this thing is harder than a crown braid. :D

So I've been looking for easy versions of the heart braid (aka: I can't lace braid). Here's a couple options I've come across so far:

Finally did it and got a picture! This is based off of one of Lilith Moon's recent videos, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x65PoVZB9c8&list=UUeRF3k69cJnxB87lwk9KbrA&index=4

Kinda a bun instead of a braid. But it's made from braids.

I struggled with this style a lot more than I expected to, but luckily DBF helped me out a bit. I guess it doesn't look amazingly like a heart, and my hair looks pretty awful in a half-up, but oh well. :p

I wonder if anyone's tried to make 3 hearts into a shamrock for St. Patrick's Day?

He doesn't know if he is suppose to be pleased or furious so right now he demands :cookie: COOKIES :cookie:


That is a very good way to describe it though!

He has decided and now will speak.

The Naughty mess decrees, "I am happy with compliments, but I hate the slave girl that confines me to hearts."

Yeah, he's a sassafrass.

I was just watching a youtube video on how to do it, I may give it a shot soonish. I'd love to try on my daughter but she is full on "I'm almost 3 and I do what I want"...sigh
