Valentine Who Hair

Happy Valentine's Day!  Today, I forgot was Costco and recycling day.  So, people are going to see Claire's hair.  I'm not sure what to think about that.

Start if your hair is long enough gather all your hair in a top pony tail.  If your hair isn't long enough for all the hair, section of the top of the head and secure that into a pony tail on the top of your head.  Add a second elastic an inch and a half to two inches away from the first elastic. Now, if you have pipe cleaners you can use those.  I couldn't find mine but I had some floral wire laying about and I used that.  About two inches from the end of two wires bend a ninety degree angle and form a circle.  This is to insure the wires stay put and help hold the style up.  Poke the straight end of both the wires up through both elastics, then hide the wire circle under the hair at the base of the pony tail.  If you need to use bobby pins to secure the wire circles.  Your pony tail should now be pointing straight up!  Poof the section of hair between the elastics a tad to make it reminiscent of a ball.  Split the pony tail in two and with each side make basic pony tails with the wire incorporated with on of the strands in each braid.  Secure the ends.  I choose to secure the ends in on themselves to help hide them by not pulling the ends completely through the elastic the final time.  Clip the ends of the wire so it doesn't poke your model's head. Now bend the wire and braids in a kind of semi-circle form to form both sides of the heart.  Use hair spray to tame any lose ends.  Grab your favorite heart themed ribbon and tie the base of the heart together so the ends of braids are secured around the original pony tail.  Ta Da!

At this point I thought I was done, but Claire has other plans, she wanted me to add some flowers so, you have some playing around you can do with it.  Have fun.  I like Who Hair.
