Sweet Heart Ponytail
With Valentines Day coming up next month I knew I just had to find some cute way to do my daughters hair. I tried a couple different ideas and this one was a simple and adorable way to dress up the casual ponytail making it into a heart! So here it is! The Heart Ponytail!
- Squirt Bottle
- 1 large elastic
- 3 smaller elastics
- Topsy Tail tool <–if you don’t have one, you can find it here on Amazon.com.
To start off, make sure the hair is brushed smooth. Then squirt it with water and pull it up into a pony tail. Put it smack dab in the middle of the back of the head. You don’t want a high pony on top or a low pony on the bottom. Secure the pony tail with the large elastic band.
Next insert the topsy tail tool from the bottom so it is poking up through the top
Now you feed the hair through the hole just like you would thread a needle
Now you pull the stick up and pull the hair through making it flip upside down
Divide the pony tail into two. A right side and a left side
Grab one section of hair and braid it. I stood on her side so it made the braid, turn sideways as I braided it down. Once you reach the end secure it with a small elastic band.
Repeat on the other side now. 🙂
Once you have both braids hanging down secure them with the third elastic band!
Spray with hairspray and your ready to go! A cute little heart on the back of her head! You could add a bow or ribbon if you wanted but I thought it was cute to just see the outline of the heart.
