Creator of the So Cozy hair care collection, Cozy Friedman has compiled great style ideas in “Cozy’s Complete Guide To Girls Hair”.  Since my 12 year old Lily has been growing out a bob cut she said she wanted in 4th grade, we have been having fun with different ways to style her hair.  We’re always looking for something fun and pretty and this is perfect.

Cozy outlines how to do the signature heart braid, a must have look for Valentine’s Day. Your little one won’t miss out on stylishly celebrating this sweet holiday!  Follow the steps below to create – 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.
