Day 30 – Heart Braid

Heart hairstyle tutorials - love these gorgeous styles! There's something here for all ages

We are on to day 30 of our 30 Day Braiding Challenge – 30 Days of New Braids. 

I can’t believe that the challenge is over already!!  If you are new to my site – you have to check out all the awesome braids HERE that we have been doing this month.  It’s been so great to hear how much fun people are having with this.  Sometimes we need a little push to step outside our comfort zones and try new things – and it’s so rewarding when we do. 

On to today’s challenge.  Today we have the heart braid.  There are many different ways that you can do a heart hairstyle.  We obviously see a lot of them around Valentine’s Day, but I think that heart braids are a super cute style any time of the year!  They don’t just have to be for little girls either.  I’ve included some of my favorite heart braids in this post – I think you’ll find one perfect for any age!
