Michael Duenas (@michaelduenas), celeb stylist and founder of Hair Room Service, created this heart shaped fishtail bun on celebrity Erin Richards that is creating quite the buzz. 

Here he shares the details and offers a You Tube tutorial to help launch his weekly HOW TO series:

-Start with smooth dry hair. Secure the hair into a low tight ponytail. Texture can be pulled into the top and sides later.
-Create a fishtail braid and secure the end of the braid with a small elastic.
-Spray the braid with R+Co Outer Space Flexible Hold hairspray, to smooth flyaway and add longevity to the style.
-Fold the base of the braid up against the head, securing with a 3 inch hair pin just above the elastic of your ponytail.
-Spread the top part of the braid out for width and to emphasize the heart shape. Making sure to keep the end of the braid small.
-Fold the braid flat against the head, tucking the ends under themselves to hide them.
-Pin to the head so it is flat as possible, and shape as desired.
