Heart Topper

When you're running low on time and you want to add a nice touch to your average hairstyle, try topping your ponytail or piggies with a heart.  This is a great idea for Valentines Day and it takes less that 5 minutes. 
Begin by pulling all of the hair back into a ponytail.  (Or two piggies, a bun, a side ponytail, or whatever you like.)  Now grab a small section of hair from that ponytail and make sure you grab it from on top.  Tie a small clear elastic around that section about 1/4 inch below the main ponytail elastic.  Using your Topsy Tail, create an Inverted Pull-Through by sticking the point of your Topsy Tail underneath your section of hair so that it point upwards behind the elastic.  Pull the small section through the loop on your Topsy Tail and ten pull it all the way through.  Separate that small section into two equal halves and twist each side instead of leaving it flat and that will help it hold it's shape better.  Create a small arch on each side for the top of your heart and then combine the two sides just below that second elastic.  Secure those two ends and the rest of your large ponytail into place using another clear elastic. 
Now your Heart Topper is finished and you can complete your ponytail with whatever braid you like.  We've just done a Regular 3-Strand Braid here. 
In a few days we will be doing a whole new hairstyle using this ponytail-heart technique so keep checking back because it will be cute!
