Braided heart

Yesterday, I found myself obsessing over braids. This obsession turned into a brief episode of craziness as I tried my hardness to perfect the heart braid:
I made my cousin my dummy and didn't stop 'til I was satisfied with the "heart". It looks complicated at first but if you know how to do a french braid, then you won't have any difficulty. Here's a few steps to get you started:
Just part hair in the middle, get a portion of hair from the bottom and start braiding up. When you reach the front of the face, start braiding down.

You only need to get the hang of it, once you get the rhythm going, you'll breeze through the whole process. Just try your best to achieve symmetry between the two sides to get the perfect hair shape :)

Isn't it the sweetest? So pretty! I highly suggest this as the flower girls' hair during weddings or if you want, you can also braid your hair this way for prom.

Good luck girls! Hope you become successful in your attempt as well!

    @noelle: awww :) I don't usually braid my hair, it's more of a "seasonal" thing for me. But I'm slowly loving it!
