If you haven’t been following Tia Mowry-Hardrict on Instagram or TikTok, we assure you that you’re missing out on some quality content. The Game star loves to share food recipes, post candid photos and videos of her family, and remind everyone that she’s a baddie with fabulous outfits and an eye for fun video transitions. But it’s not just her personal style that is A1—we’re obsessed with all of her hair choices too, especially her braided styles. Case in point: this gorgeous braided ponytail with a heart-shaped cornrow detail she wore for Valentine’s Day.
Mowry-Hardrict shared the new hairstyle in an Instagram carousel, showing how she celebrated the holiday. In the first photo, the Sister, Sister actor poses alongside her husband, showing off every inch of her high ponytail, created by hairstylist Marquita Lynch. The second photo in the carousel, a selfie, gives us a closer look at all the details of the front half of the look.
This braid is full of texture, boasting curls at the tip and coiled wisps sticking out through the length of the ponytail. As for the base, Lynch wrapped a smaller plait and golden chain around it to lend an extra helping of polish to the overall look. But that’s not the only detail we’re loving about this hairstyle. There’s another surprise when Mowry-Hardrict turns her head: Lynch braided the actor’s hair into a large heart cornrow that connects to a plait looping from the nape of her neck to the base of the ponytail.
Though she wore this hairstyle for Valentine’s Day, it’s too cute to wear it only for that holiday. We’ve been seeing more and more braided looks with heart details, and Mowry-Hardrict shows another way to try the trend.
And with that, we’ll be on standby until she switches up her hair again—we have no doubt we’ll be fawning over the next look too.
