Valentine’s Day Braid: Get the Romantic Look This Valentine’s Day
Wear a simple Valentine’s Day braid this holiday for a romantic look. This Tuesday’s how-to breaks down the steps to recreate Bella Thorne’s sweet style to celebrate love.
Happy Tuesday beautiful! Since it is Valentine’s Day, it also happens to be time for another Ask the Pro Stylist’s How-To. In celebration of Cupid’s holiday, I bring you a simple Valentine’s Day braid.
I dug deep into my hair-how-to archives and found the beautiful Bella Thorne plaited pony braid guide. As such, it is soft, sexy and feminine; all of the aspects needed for a romantic Valentine’s Day braid. Best yet, it is simple to create on one’s own.
Although this Valentine’s Day braid looks difficult, a few easy steps can recreate a great hairstyle for dinner out or in. You will need texturizing spray or dry shampoo, a large barrel curling iron, hairpins, bobby pins and small elastic bands.
- To begin, blow-dry the hair to create some volume.
- Next, use a large barrel curling iron for soft waves.
- Then create three sections of hair, leaving the bangs and some of the sides (up to the temples) down and loose.
- As a result, the crown section will be the braid and the nape area will be a loose ponytail.
- Fasten the pony with an elastic band, and then make the braids.
- Parting the crown down the middle, make two braids, medium to thin sizes, on either side of the head to create a tiara effect.
- Clip one braid away as you make the next one, but don’t braid to the end of the hair, only braid to about midway down the strand.
- Then begin to braid both pieces together as you reach the ponytail.
- Finally, use the left over hair of the combined braids and crisscross the hair around the fastener to conceal it.
- To finish, spray your favorite professional brand light-hold hairspray.
