Happy Valentine’s Day! We hope your day is filled with love and of course, hot hair. Don’t have your hair plans firmed up yet? Don’t worry, we’ve got cupid approved romantic hairstyles that work for a wide variety of hair types.
Wavy: For soft dreamy waves take a page out of Zoe Saldana’s play book. Her locks are always shiny, impeccable and just begging to be touched.
Get the look: Work volumizing product through damp hair, then blow dry and create wide spirals (a curling wand or straightner would be great for this). Let hair cool and tousle slightly for a relaxed wavy look.
Straight and Thick: We’re totally inspired byMiranda Kerr's thick straight strands styled in a blowout fit for a vixen. Give your locks the same luxe treatment for Valentine’s day.
Get the look: Create body by blow drying hair straight with a round brush. Next, use a large barrel iron to curl the ends then gently glide the iron out and clip curls in place until cooled. Finish by brushing through the ends to create separation and enjoy!
Fine: Fine strands sported by the likes of Nicole Richie and Charlize Theron are well suitedfor romantic knots and charming side buns. Fashion those flirty wisps into chignons with major sex appeal.
Get the look: Tease your crown slightly to create more volume. Next, use an elastic to gather hair loosely into a low ponytail, tease and then wind into a bun. Secure the bun with hairpins on each side. Feel free to add a few extensions for further dramatic effective or throw a braid into the mix for bohemian flare.
Textured/Curly: Beyoncé, Hayden Panetierre and Taylor Swift seduce us with va-va-voom curls that work for long, short and medium length hair. These ladies embrace their natural texture with styles that aren’t super straight.
Get the Look(s):
Beyonce’s va-voom curls- Create a deep side part, then curl hair with a large barrel curling iron. Sweep towards one side. Secure with bobby pins and mist with strong hold hairspray to keep the look free of fly-aways.
Hayden Panettiere’s short ‘n sassy do- Start with damp hair, apply gel or holding product and gently slick hair back. Use bobby pins to secure longer front pieces. Let the back curl naturally.
Taylor Swift's faux bob- Curl 1” sections of hair, let cool and separate with your fingers. Secure hair with elastic towards the ends, then roll and tuck hair towards the nape. Spread hair to create a bob illusion, leaving the sides out. Secure with bobby pins and apply holding spray.
Natural: We’re still swooning over the glamorous tuck and roll that Teyonah Parris debuted at the SAG awards. Rock this natural hairstyle for your next date night and all eyes are guaranteed to be on you.
Get the look: Start with wash and conditioned hair. Apply heat protectant before blow drying. After hair is blown out separate hair into sections, form ponytails in each section, fold, tuck and secure with hair pins. Divide the front of the hair into sections and repeat. Use edge tamer or smoothing product to mimic Teyona’s sleek sides then finish with a firm holding spray.
