Half-Up Heart

Have you ever wondered, “How do I make my hair look like a heart?” Well, the truth is, there are a handful of approaches to try, ranging from braided styles to loose, half-up hairdos like this one here. With a skilled hand and a lot of bobby pins, you may be able to pull the look off at home. However, we suggest showing this to your stylist to ensure your strands are picture-perfect for your evening plans.

Flower Crown

They’re not just for Halloween! This tutorial proves that adding a flower crown to loose waves (or any style, really) for a boho vibe is one of the simplest ways to do Valentine’s Day hair this year.

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. Starting with blow-dried hair, use a fine-tooth comb to create a middle part, and then use a boar bristle brush to smooth your strands.

Next, secure the ponytail with a hair elastic at the nape of your neck. You can use a bit of hair gel to touch up any flyways or frizz around your hairline. Finally, complete your look with a high-hold hairspray, like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Infinium 4 High-Hold Hairspray.

Chignon With A Bow

Love Heart Hairstyle

This heart ‘do uses two knot-buns that are then secured together to create a heart-shaped silhouette. To replicate the beachy texture, spritz a bit of Kérastase Soleil Beach Bi-Phase Oil Mist onto your strands and scrunch before styling.

Finger Waves

Speaking of retro-inspired hair, wet-look finger waves are a stunning look for Valentine’s Day. All you’ll need is a strong-hold hair gel—like Matrix Controller Gel—and a little patience to make this classic look yours.

Rosette Half Updo

No flower shouts romance quite like roses, so why not let it inspire your Valentine’s Day hairstyle? This rosette half-updo is dizzyingly beautiful and way less complicated than 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! Either way, don’t forget to lock it into place with hairspray. Redken Shine Flash Hair Spray delivers a glass-like look without any sticky or greasy residue.

Rosette Bouquet

If one rosette isn't going to cut it for you this Valentine’s Day, consider a multi-rosette half updo instead. The sweet leaves added throughout give this look an even more organic, romantic feel.

Bun Heart

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this heart-shaped bun is totally speaking our love language. Use a bobby pin to tuck the top of your bun down into its base to create the top of the heart, then gently fan out the sides and bottom to create a soft V-shape.

Half-Up Bun Heart

Want to keep your locks flowing freely over your shoulders? Opt for a half-up take on the heart-shaped bun above. A texturizing spray like Shu Uemura Art of Hair’s Wata Wave Texture Spray can give you that “just returned from my tropical honeymoon” air.

Real Roses

This Valentine’s Day hairstyle is lovely for those who’d rather go with the real deal (or perhaps a life-like silk option). Start by creating a loose updo, then incorporate flowers throughout. This one might be a good one for your stylist to help you pull off. #WorthIt!

Voluminous Fishtail

Good news: Your V-Day braid doesn’t need to be overly complex to make a statement. This voluminous fishtail braid is all you’ll need to add a romantic touch to your look. The baby’s breath incorporated throughout is optional, but dang if it isn’t extra romantic!

Low Fishtail With Scarf

Here’s another way to wear a fishtail braid this Valentine’s Day. Simply pull your hair back into a low ponytail and create a fishtail braid before securing it with an elastic. Finally, wrap a scarf around the base for some romantic movement.

Oversized Double Barrettes

Your Valentine’s Day hairstyle doesn’t have to be complicated. Keep things simple with a couple of oversized barrettes. After styling your hair with loose waves, sweep half your hair back and secure it with an oversized barrette. Add another one to show you’re serious about your barrette game.

Soft Texture With Accessories

Embrace your natural texture this Valentine’s Day with this wind-swept style. To keep your tendrils touchably soft, apply Mizani 25 Miracle Milk to damp hair and comb through.

Celestial Hair

The moon and stars also feel very apropos for Valentine’s Day. This style keeps it simple with a low and loosely rolled chignon and a string of gilded stars.

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.

Peekaboo Pink

Does it get any more romantic than incorporating notes of pink into your hair? For a color that’s not so obvious, try peekaboo color, which goes on the bottom layer of your hair. Every time you run your fingers through your mane, your chosen pink shade will “peek” through for a sweet surprise.
