How to Create a Pancaked Heart Half-Up Hairstyle | Valentine’s Day Hairstyles

Learn how to create this beautiful Pancaked Heart Half-Up Hairstyle in under 3 minutes! With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, what hairstyles can you wear that are subtle yet festive to celebrate love? This is one!

To watch all of our other Valentine’s Day Hairstyles, many featuring hearts, please CLICK here:

There is another popular variation of this hairstyle out there, but this hair tutorial reverses the looping of the heart to allow for greater support of the heart after pancaking it. Pay particular attention to how I loop the hair through for the bows of the heart.
