A Gorgeous French Twist

This Valentine’s Day hairstyle may look masterful and elegant, but it’s actually incredibly easy to pull off. If you’re running out of time before your 8 PM dinner reservations, a gorgeous French will be your saving grace.

Supplies you’ll need: a handful of bobby pins, a hairbrush, and some finishing spray.

How to pull it off: first start by pulling your hair all to one side. Secure it with a couple of bobby pins vertically placed and facing upward. Further secure the side part with criss-crossing pins, and once they’re all in place, gather the ends of your hair and twist upward and over in the opposite direction. As soon as you’ve got a neat-looking twist, fasten the updo by slipping in the rest of your bobby pins horizontally. Polish off the look with a quick spritz of finishing spray.

Polished, Bouncy Waves

Polished, bouncy waves exude elegant romance. This Valentine’s Day, go with a classic look that’s understated, sexy, and feminine all rolled into one.

Supplies you’ll need: blow dryer with diffuser, curling wand, round brush, and a dollop of curl defining creme.

How to pull it off: start with damp hair. Take a dollop of curl defining creme in your palm and work it evenly through your hair from midshaft to the ends. For a little added volume if your hair is on the thinner side, you can work in a little volumizing root lifter near your roots. Once you’ve coated your strands, it’s time to take the diffuser to them. As soon as you’ve finished drying your hair, take out the curling wand. Make sure to curl away from your face. With the curls all set in place, it’s time now to gently brush them out and turn them into the polished, bouncy waves you’ve been dreaming of! Voila! A super romantic Valentine’s Day hairstyle with minimal effort.

A Romantic Side Braid

If you’ve always fantasized about riding off into the sunset with Prince Charming, then this romantic side braid is the perfect romantic Valentine’s Day hairstyle for you. Equal parts adventure and romance, the side braid is the ideal hairstyle for whatever you have planned.

Supplies you’ll need: a fine-toothed comb, a hair tie, and a little texturizing spray.

Add some texture to this romantic Valentine’s Day hairstyle by backcombing your hair with the fine-toothed comb and spraying some texturizing spray right where you intend to start braiding it.
