Cupid's Heart

We have come up with a new hairstyle that is perfect for Valentines Day.  We call is "Cupid's Heart" and it is VERY easy - don't let the pictures fool you!  :)
Start with wet hair.  It will not hold nearly as well if the hair is not wet.  Create a part directly down the middle of the head so that you now have two equal sections. 
Using a rat-tailed comb you will create half of a heart on the left side of the part.  (We started the inside of our heart about 3.5 inches back from her bang line.)  The half-heart will start and end right on the middle part.  Comb the hair outside of the heart down an have your princess hold the hair that is inside the heart.  Now move over to the right side and create the other half of your heart.  It needs to be a mirror image of the left side so make sure you take your time and really have it look nice.  Make sure that all of the hair outside of the heart is combed down and then tightly smooth out all of the hair inside the hear and combine it right in the middle with an elastic to create one ponytail.  You should be able to see your heart-part really nicely now.  The hair outside of the parts should still be divided into two sides with that original middle part.  Go ahead and divide your ponytail into two equal halves as well, one for each side.  Temporarily tie off the right side (ponytail and hair) with an elastic so that you can work on the left side without that hair getting mixed in. 
Start on the top-middle part of your heart and begin french braiding by gathering three small sections from the hair not inside the heart.  Gather hair into your braid each time you plate. 
The outside will be gathered from the hair that is loose and the inside will be gathered from the ponytail.  Have your braid lie directly on the hear part so that you can keep the shape that you want.  Continue gathering hair all the way down that half of the heart and tie it into a temporary elastic when you finish at the nape of the neck. 
 Move over to the right side and repeat the steps.  When all of the hair is gathered and you are down at the bottom of the head, remove your temporary elastic from the left side and combine both sides together in one final elastic. 
 You can finish off that new ponytail however you like but we have chose to do a Quad Braid here.  (You can find the video for a Quad Braid here.)  Add some fun Valentines hair clips and give it a good spray with hairspray. 
It takes a good 15-20 minutes to complete but the idea is quite simple.  :)

Friday's Film: 7-Strand Braids

You may have noticed a couple new things on our sidebar.  We now have links to our Facebook page and our Pinterest page.    Pinterest is particularly fun because it allows you to pin the hairstyles that you are interested in and then you have a quick reference when you're stumped on what to do in the mornings.  Hopefully these with both be helpful links for you!
The hairstyles for today are ones that we have done before but did not have videos for.  We got a request for a 7-Strand Braid from a follower in Brazil and I wasn't sure which particular one was being requested so we made a video for both.  Keep in mind that working with 7 strand is much more difficult because there are less spaces between the fingers to hold everything.  I say "difficult" but not "impossible".  Practice a bit and it will become easy for you.  These videos will hopefully help you and not confuse you more because it is a bit hard to get the perfect angle with my hands and the video camera.  :) 

This one is officially called the "7-Strand Braid" and the original post can be found here.
This braid is a bit easier if you can do it without a full ponytail.  The more hair, the harder it is to hold.  Maybe try it with a half-up style as well!
This shows the braid up close and you can see that it has more of a weave look to it.

This one is called "Lucky Number 7" and the original post can be found here.
You will want to secure all the strand together at the bottom with an elastic. 
Here's a close-up of the weave in the braid.

Royal Rolls

Here's a really fast hairstyle that is great for church or any other formal venue.  It is not necessary to start with wet hair but it will help the style to hold longer if you do.
Comb all of the hair straight back toward the nape of the neck and smooth it nicely so there are no loose hairs popping up. 
We have added this braided hair accessory that I found at Sally Beauty Supply.  It looks like natural hair and comes in a wide variety of colors to match every hair type.  It's also adjustable with an elastic bottom so that adults can wear it too.  You don't need to have it for this hairstyle to look great but I do like the little extra that it adds without the extra work.  :)   If you do choose to use this or any other type of elastic headband, make sure that it wraps underneath all of the hair next to the neck. 
Now gather all of the hair down at the ape of the neck into an elastic so that you have one large ponytail.  Grab your Topsy Tail and stick the pick part straight down behind the elastic.  Feed your ponytail up through the loop and then pull the hair through to create a Pull-Through. 
Now separate your ponytail into 4-6 even pieces and Barrel Roll them upward into the head.  (If you do not know how to create a Barrel Roll you can see the video here.)  Secure your rolls with bobby pins.  The Pull-Through that you created previously will help give some stability in the hair for those bobby pins to latch onto.
  Spread your Barrel Rolls out around the base of the head to give it a nice look and also to cover your elastic band a bit. 
Once all of your rolls have been created and are secured, you can add some hair accessories.  I've added some little flower hair pins that we made and you can see the video on how to make these here.  I've also added a couple flowers up by the headband.  Give it a good spray with hairspray and it's finished.
