Heart-shaped braids by Babes in Hairland

This look is somewhere between a French braid and a messy braid. Babes in Hairland deems this the “heart braid” because the strands of hair are slightly pulled out to give a looser look that imitates a chain of hearts (perhaps another Valentine’s Day option?).

8. The Bow Bun
