On Valentine’s Day, try something a little different with your hair. A sexy yet sweet style is ideal for this romantic holiday. Experiment a few days ahead of time to find the perfect Valentine’s Day hairstyle for you.
Try a messy updo
Warm a little hair polish or serum in your hands, then finger-rake it through your hair to add some shine.
Rough-dry your hair with your hands. Add a little texurizing lotion or cream (like L’Oreal Studio Unkempt Out of Bed Weightless Texturizer) to get some messy volume and hold.
Pull your hair into a high ponytail and secure with a band. Twist and then loop it into loose sections and secure each one with a bobbypin.
If you have bangs, blow dry them smooth and swept to the side. Add a flower behind your ear to add a sweet touch to your messy updo.
Consider loose, romantic waves
Romantic hairstyles don’t have to be updos. For a glamorous look, you can leave your hair long and wavy. Check out this tutorial to find out how to get this look.
