So happy to be back with some love in the (h)air inspiration for you this month! 😉
We’re approaching one of my favourite days in February – Valentine’s day! Even though we should celebrate love and romance every day, it’s so easy to get caught up with our day to day routine. That’s why it’s nice to have a reminder, at least once a year, right?
Whether you’re going to be spending it with your other half or just kickin’ it with the girls, this is the day to bring out the romantic in you with these 3 romantic hairstyles for Valentine’s day.
Tip: Before you start – unless your hair has a natural wave to it, you’ll definitely want to curl it for this special day. If you don’t have time to use a heatless technique, you can use your flat iron to make quick, effortless waves that will add a ton of romance to any hairstyle. You’ll want to separate your hair into bigger but manageable sections, brush them horizontally away from your head, clamp the flat iron on to the hair, turn it 180 degrees away from your face and pull it gently down the hair shaft. Always in the direction away from your face.
THE DUTCH FISHTAIL BRAID TIE-BACK
FISHTAIL TIE-BACK INTO FRENCH FISHTAIL BRAID
This is a continuation of the first hairstyle, where you add a french fishtail braid to the whole look.
Tip: Pull the braid apart to make it loose and full. If your hair is longer, you could just leave it at that, but for short haired ladies like me, I suggest tucking the braid under and pinning it in place with two bobby pins (in an X shape for good hold). It will look more elegant.
THE TWIST AND PIN UPDO
This option is for those of you who prefer something less time consuming and super easy! Once the hair is already curled away from your face, this hairstyle will practically make itself! 🙂
Tip: You can tuck in the twists over the ones you have already made. When the hair is curled, especially at the ends, it doesn’t take much organising – the ends that stick out actually look good! Just play around with it, place the twists different places and if you find a spot you like, pin it!
I hope you find these Valentine’s Day hairstyle ideas useful and that you’ll have fun trying them! Don’t be hard on yourself! Tight, perfectly sleek braids are super cute on little girls, but if you’re going for a more adult look, messy braids are in! I would even say romantic! 😉
