Hair Carnival: Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!! We have decided, along with some other wonderful bloggers, to show you a couple of designs that incorporate hearts in the theme. Hearts of course are perfect for Valentine's Day but you could do these any time which is great too. This is the first year that I have actually set out to purposely style Des' hair for Valentine's Day. Since Des is getting older I decided to try and play off of that. 



After washing and detangling Des' hair I had to figure out what I was going to do. I decided to part a heart in the center back of her head. For that section I did small two strand twist and then fishtailed the twist together. 



Once I finished with the heart portion I decided to try to do an updo of sorts with what was left of her hair. I did flat twist up and around the sides of the heart and I also did three flat twists on the left side of her head, I finished the flat twist with two strand twist. With the reminder of the hair I just did random two strand twist. 



I took a few twists and made a swoop bang. I then just put the rest of the hair in a side a bun of sorts. I held all the hair in place with little clips, 3 total. 



Des takes the clips out at night and puts on her satin bonnet to sleep and in the morning we just put the hair up in the clips. 

Here is another style I have done on a friend's daughter. I incorporated a heart at the top of her head and put the remainder of her hair in a braided faux hawk. I did place two beads at the front of the cornrows that I braided into a heart shape. It was a simple style but she loved it and with tweens that means so much. She also told me people at school loved it, so that makes it all worth it.  



Feel free to share your Valentine's hair do on our Facebook or our Google + page, we would love to see. Hope you all have a wonderful and sweet Valentine's Day. Until the next time... Stay Blessed.
