Best Hairstyles for Valentines Day
A Beribboned Ponytail
Having a bad hair day but still want something pretty and feminine? An easy and beautiful option is a massive bow. Pick a silky ribbon in red, pink, or another holiday color, or go for an understated note with a thin, velvet ribbon. Then arrange your hair in any type of ponytail. You can curl the ends or add extensions for extra glamor, or stick with a simple tail in your natural texture. Once it is pulled up, all you have to do is tie a ribbon around the top and form a bow. The ribbon adds an elegant touch while the ponytail saves you plenty of time.
This classic style will have your loved one desperate to bury their fingers in your hair during a passionate kiss. Go for plenty of volumes by blow-drying your hair upside down before using a curling iron to gently curl the tips of your hair. Then brush through it and apply a setting spray for that perfect tousled, wavy look. If you have naturally shorter hair, there are still plenty of ways to get this high impact look. Consider realistic human hair wigs for an all-over look or select clip-in extensions that make it look like you have longer layers.
A Heart Shaped Bun
This romantic style is fully on-theme for the holiday. It looks complicated but is actually quite simple. All you have to do is a little creative pinning, and you end up with a sweet half-up, half-down look that has an adorable heart shape in the back. Start by arranging your hair in your preferred half-up, half-down style. Then separate the ponytail into two pieces. Twist one half into a spiral ballerina bun shape and pin the spiral in place while leaving the tail hanging. Then take the tail, keep twisting, and pin it down in an angled line. Do the same thing on the other side to form a cute heart shape. This style looks equally adorable on long, straight, curly, or short hair.
A Braided Crown
Get a beautiful boho princess vibe with this braided look. The front sections are pulled away to emphasize the face, while the braids give visual interest and the back hangs down in romantic tendrils. Begin by sectioning the front half of your hair into two sections. Braid each one of these pieces before pinning them in place on the back of your head. Depending on how long your hair is, you may be able to twist the braids around to form a complete circle or just twine them into a crescent shape. If desired, finish by pulling loose a few tendrils to frame your face. A great thing about this style is that it works well with all hair textures. Whether you have kinky natural curls or pin-straight hair, the look can celebrate your natural style.
An Elegant Low Bun
This Valentine’s Day updo adds a special touch to any outfit. With all of your hair pulled back, you can ensure the focus is on your face, decolletage, or shoulders. Instead of using the basic method of pulling a loop of hair through a bun, this style uses twisted coils of hair to get extra volume and oomph. To do it, begin by parting your hair in your preferred place and pulling it into a low ponytail. Then take sections of hair, twist them into loose ropes, and wind them into a bun shape, and pin them in place. Continue twisting and pinning hair until an elaborate bun forms.
With these cute hairstyles, one of the most important parts of your Valentine’s Day look is ready to go. All you need to do now is choose a cute outfit and flattering makeup to complement your hair!
