Love is in the hair…ahem, air. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, merely a few days away, and what better way to sweep the man of your dreams off his feet than with a romantically beautiful hairstyle. Yes, ladies. We can do the sweeping too! Confidently wear your locks when you head out for the evening, and you’ll find yourself in a bubble of love all too irresistible.
Whether you have short, or long hair, we’ve got you covered.
A textured half do is great because the waves soften and frame your face, while the crown elongates and flatters at the same time. Rapunzel-length locks are all the more enchanting with side swept detailing and a sparkly clip or flowers to secure the updo. With the hair flowing, this hairstyle is perfect for a quiet date night, where you’re going for dinner and have the corner table all to yourselves. If you’re looking for a more relaxed take, try a side-parted variation with gorgeous fluffed-up texture in the back.
Sweet Side Bun
If you want a romantic way to wear this look without looking like a ballerina, place your hair bun closer to the nape of the neck for a soft, pretty date-worthy hair idea. Pair with a swipe of black eyeliner and a bright matte lipstick for a simple yet sexy look. Side buns look asymmetric and luscious, working beautifully on both long and medium hair, and the braided version puts a modern, yet charming twist on the hairstyle. Again, a sparkly accessory won’t go astray in adding a touch of old-school romanticism to the look!
Side swept braids are brilliant if you have second or third-day hair, and no time to wash it. This romantic triple braid is a sure-fire hit, and will soon be one of your man’s favourite looks on you as it leaves your hair voluminous and refreshed. The best part is that it’s easy enough for all skill levels to achieve despite the fact it may appear intricate and complicated (which, essentially is the goal!), and is perfect to wear for any surprise your Valentine may have planned for you. So, don’t worry if you’re heading to the beach, to a nightclub, to a picnic in the park, or for a quiet dinner at his place – the triple braid is romantic for every single occasion.
Short Hair Updo
We get it. The strong majority of gorgeous updo ideas are for long hair, and it can be maddening for short-haired beauties, who deserve to have just as much hairstyle versatility, especially for special occasions like Valentine’s Day. Women with short bobs can add incredible romanticism with a braided twist that runs from your side part straight through to the other side. With large curls, tousle them and set with hairspray to create waves in the back. Match with a natural make up look that says, ‘No effort putting this together, I’m a natural beauty.’
Bumped Up Ponytail
Don’t think of a Valentine’s Day ponytail as a boring hairstyle; make it bouncy and flirty! Gather the hair as if you’re making a high ponytail, give it a twist or two using a claw clip to secure for extra volume and that ‘stacked’ feeling. Your hair will spill over the clip and leave your Valentine wagging his tail as he becomes mesmerised by the flirtatious nature of your hairstyle.
Romantic hair is all about being luscious, soft, and touchable. And although many of these styles can be created in the comfort of your own home, we would love to help you get ready for your big romantic day or night out on Valentine’s Day!
