Your child will fall in love with this hairstyle, perfect for Valentine’s Day–a heart braid!
I came across this very sweet and unique braid in a new book, “Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair: The Cutest Cuts and Sweetest Hairstyles to Do at Home” by Cozy Friedman. Cozy Friedman is the experienced hairstylist and owner of Cozy’s Cuts for Kids hair salons in New York City, salons that are just for kids. As a mother of two, Cozy also has a line of hair products, So Cozy Hair Care for Children.
Her book is a comprehensive guide to hair, with explainers on hair types to recommendations for hairstyling tools and products to solutions for hair emergencies (gum, green hair, and lice). There are also chapters devoted to everday and special occasion hairstyles.
The heart braid is perfect for girls with medium to long hair of different hair types–straight, wavy, or curly. For moms who are experienced braiders, this hairstyle should take 15 minutes, and requires only combs, hair clips, and ponytail holders. You can check out step-by-step instructions for creating the heart braid on Cozy’s site. An upcoming slideshow on Parents.com will also feature step-by-step instructions for creating another hairstyle, the Ballerina Chignon.
Happy Heart Day!
