Happy Valentine's day, everyone! I hope you have a fantastic day. I know this post is too late for Valentine's day this year (unless you have a fun party tonight), but I had to share this cute Valentine hair tutorial. I used it on two of my kiddos this morning, and it took ten minutes or less for each girl. (If you've ever done a little girl's hair . . . that's quick!
Cute and Clever Valentine Hair for Girls
Twisted Hearts Valentine Hair
Here's how it's done:
Part the hair on the side and section it into two small ponytails on the side. Pull the extra hair back to keep it out of the way. DO NOT make the ponytails very tight. You'll see why in the next step. Add some mousse to the sections of hair to keep it looking neat. (I added mousse to one style and not the other. I think you'll be able to tell which is which! One style is quite messy, while the other looks nice and neat.)
Starting from the part, use your fingers or a comb to split one pony tail (above the hair band) into two parts. Flip the ponytail under and up (through the part you just created) toward the top of the head. (This is the opposite of the way you would normally flip through for other styles.)
I have to add a disclaimer here. In the picture on the left, you'll notice a bobby pin. That is because I made a mistake when I twisted her hair. I corrected it, but I forgot to take a picture! So, ignore the bobby pin. You won't need it if you follow the instructions. (Can you tell this is the non-moussed head?)
Beginning with the back ponytail, divide the hair into two equal sections and hold one section in each hand. Twist the hair in both hands toward the outside.(This is where mousse helps the hair stay neat.) Shape the strands into a heart and fasten the bottom with a hair band.
Do the same with the second ponytail with the following change. Have your child hold the front strand while you twist the back strand and tuck it under the back heart. Twist the front strand, shape the two strands into a heart, and fasten the bottom with a hair band.
Curl the ends if you have time, or just leave it straight.
Stand back and enjoy the hugs and kisses because your kid now thinks you're the best mom ever! (I wish it were this easy to please my kids all the time!) A cute Valentine hair style lasts a long time on the great mommy scale!
Are you earning money while you shop?
While you're here, I'd love to tell you about one quick and easy way that I earn money while shopping. This post shares the top four apps/programs I use to earn money with very little effort, but today, I'll just share the easiest one: Fetch Rewards
To start earning money, all you have to do is take pictures of your grocery receipts in the app. You earn points based on what you buy. (You earn a minimum of 25 points per receipt, but if you happen to buy a lot of name brands, you'll earn a lot more.) Every 1000 points equals a dollar that you can redeem in the form of lots of different gift cards. (I always pick the Amazon gift cards.)
If you want your money to add up even faster, share the program with your friends. You and they will earn 2000 points when your friends scan their first receipt, so share away! (Sometimes Fetch runs special offers to earn even more points when sharing.) Please use my referral code to get your bonus points: EF4ET. Thank you!
You might love these ideas, too!
Thanks for stopping by today. While you're here, I'd love it if you checked out some of my other tutorials.
