Whether you’re in a relationship or spending this Valentine’s Day solo, there’s plenty of ways to get in the romantic spirit. I, for one, spend most of the month of February binge watching romantic comedies and planning a Galentine’s day dinner with my friends. If you already have your Valentine’s Day plans booked and your outfit is ready to go, however, there’s one more thing you need to consider: A romantic hairstyle to complete your look.
Whether you’re going for something simple or a bit more intricate, these are the 11 romantic hairstyles you need to know about.
The Best Romantic Hairstyles To Try Now
Sleek Low Ponytail
Searching for a fool-proof look that will ensure your mane looks impeccable for date night? Stick with a classic sleek low ponytail. Beginning with blow dried hair. Use a fine-tooth come to create a middle part and use a boar bristle brush to smooth your strands.
Then, secure the ponytail with a hair elastic at the nape of your neck. Use hair gel to touch-up any flyways or frizz around your hairline. Complete your look with a high-hold hairspray like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Infinium 4 High-Hold Hairspray.
Whether you head to the salon or decide to DIY, a bouncy blowout is a classic look for any Valentine’s Day plans. Planning on creating your bouncy blowout at home? Click here for our step-by-step guide.
Double Bun Updo
Looking for a chic way to keep your strands away from your face for the evening? Consider this double bun updo.
In search of the perfect match for classic red lipstick and a smokey eyeshadow look? Look no further than glossy, glam waves. If you want sleek, polished waves worthy of your favorite Hollywood starlet, use a serum like Matrix Total Results Mega Sleek Mega Varnish Shine Anti-Frizz Serum. This serum provides high shine as it absorbs into hair and manages frizz and smoothness.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Halo braids are the ultimate romantic hairstyle. If you’re planning an elegant night out, this is the braided hairstyle to try. Not sure how to style a halo braid for yourself? Click here for our full guide.
Tucked Behind Ears
If you’re hoping to go the effortless route this year, create soft waves and simply tuck your hair behind your ears. This quick trick gives your look instant elegance. Pop on a stylish barrette or hair pin to add another romantic element to your ‘do.
If you’re looking to go vintage with your hairstyle, give finger waves a try. All you’ll need is a strong-hold hair gel like Matrix Vavoom Hold My Body Forming Hair Gel (and a little bit of patience) to make this classic look yours.
Rosette Half Updo
No flower screams romance quite like roses do, so why not let it inspire your Valentine’s Day hairstyle? This rosette half-updo is stunning (and don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it looks). To create the rose shape, simply pancake a traditional three-strand braid and twist it to form the shape of a rose. If you’re unsure whether or not you can master a rosette on your own, look to your stylist for guidance!
Accent Fishtail Braid
Good news: Your V-Day braid doesn’t need to be complex to make a statement. In fact, this accent fishtail braid is all you’ll need to add a romantic touch to your look.
Laid-Back Low Bun
If your Valentine’s Day plans involve a cozy night in, opt for a laid-back low bun. The face-framing strands give an effortless, undone appearance that’s still chic and romantic.
