Get Your Hair Valentine’s Day Ready
Your hair speaks volumes about your personality, and on Valentine’s Day, it’s especially important to choose a style that shows your date exactly who you are—whether you want to go big and make major changes or keep it simple and classic. So, before you head out for your Valentine’s Day plans on Thursday, make sure to settle on a date night hairstyle that suits your personality.
Simple yet elegant, a polished blowout sends a signal that you’re confident and self-assured, but relatively low maintenance. You like to stay put together, but you don’t have time to spend hours creating the perfect mermaid braid before a date. A blowout is also the perfect choice for a romantic dinner and movie date, as it hold up nicely all night long. What’s great about a blowout, as opposed to going for a stick straight look, is that you won’t have to worry about running your fingers through your hair and messing it up. A blowout is a low-maintenance style, so it’s meant to look free and bouncy.
Another simple but powerful choice, a sleek and well-maintained ponytail is great for more adventurous Valentine’s Day dates. Thinking of going on a romantic hike before grabbing lunch? A polished ponytail can shift from sporty to classy with very little maintenance. If you want to make sure your ponytail holds up throughout the day, try bringing a small bottle of non-crunchy hairspray and a brush in your bag for touch-ups.
Soft Curls or Waves
It’s hard to go wrong with classic soft curls or beach waves on Valentine’s Day. Unless your beau has a strenuous day hike planned for your romantic outing, tousled curls go great with any activity or outfit. From dinner and a movie to a long stroll on the beach, loose curls or waves are the perfect hairstyle for any Valentine’s Day date.
There are tons of braid hairstyles to choose from this Valentine’s Day that work especially well if you’re going for something new and fresh. Try a braided updo like a flower crown for a natural yet polished look. Planning on a casual beach day? Loosely braid the hair around your face to create beachy boho braids.
Straight and Shiny
is more when it comes to your hair. Rather than spending hours on a whole new
hairdo for Valentine’s Day, try keeping it simple with a straight, polished
look. The best way
to make this style look flawless is to run a dime sized amount of heat protectant serum through your hair before using any heat on it. If your hair is naturally curly, you may want to consider using a leave-in conditioner in your hair before it dries, as well. Once you’re sure every strand is protected, blow dry your hair straight and use a straightener to tame any kinky pieces or fly-aways.
