For decades Valentine’s Day has been a time focused on lovers and loved ones, candy and flowers, romance and love. This year, surprise your cupid with a romantic hairstyle and a complimentary hair accessory that he’ll remember for years to come. Here are four easy to create looks that are sure to bring love your way this Valentine’s day.
Long Hair Styles
For long hair, try a sexy, messy chignon (bun) which is easy, versatile, and works on all hair types, although it does best on hair that hasn’t been washed for 24 hours. You can also choose to wear this bun high on your head or low on the back of your neck. To get this style, follow these few steps:
- Brush your hair and pull it backward, gathering it into a loose ponytail. To create a lower messy chignon, start the ponytail at the nape of your neck; for a higher bun, make a high ponytail.
- Tie your ponytail with an elastic band, smooth out the bumps with a paddlebrush and pull up the ponytail to create fullness on the top of your head.
- Split your ponytail in half then make a single loose tie. Take the two loose ends and tuck them into the chignon. Follow with bobby pins that match your hair color and place them accordingly inside the chignon.
Add dangling earrings to this up-do for an even more dazzling effect!
For a more relaxed look, leave your hair down and go over it with a flat iron for shiny locks. Then wrap the ends around a curling iron for a polished easy look men will go wild for. Pull one or both sides up with a rhinestone pin or pretty brooch for added allure.
Medium Length Styles
For medium length, layered hair, use a vent brush for extra volume, switching to a round brush to flip out the ends. Rub in a small amount of pomade for a textured look and you’re ready for a night out. Use a flower to sweep up one side for a bohemian look.
For short hair, get a pixie cut with bangs that show off your eyes. Use a lightweight smoothing styler and blow dry your hair forward with a natural bristle brush. Spread a wax-based pomade from roots to ends and tuck the extra-long pieces of hair behind your ear with a bobby pin. Wear sparkly earrings to showcase this look.
Make your own magic this February with the confidence that comes from knowing you look romantic! And remember, since your hair is your best accessory; why not make it say “Be Mine” this Valentine’s Day.
