So, we all love Pinterest, am I right? It’s so addicting and full of such good ideas. Many times you may end up hitting yourself on the head thinking, “why haven’t I thought to do that before?” Or, “why didn’t I think to turn a bookcase into a multifunctional shelving unit?” Most importantly however, we see the adorable nail art and hair styles that look too good to be true. For many of us…that is the case. We leave those pins on a fantasy board hoping that through visual osmosis our hair will be styled by the time we hit “log out.”

With Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s that much harder to avoid the pit of Pinterest. Luckily, we have some hair experts willing to break down one look that will have every kid swooning! Cozy Friedman, Founder of Cozy’s Cuts for Kids and creator of the So Cozy hair care collection is here to break down their signature heart braid. This is a must-have look from the kids’ hair authority. Let’s learn how to hit Cupid’s mark with the Heart Hair Braid Tutorial from Cozy’s Cuts for Kids:

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.
