2. Enchanting Updo

Are you hoping to charm your way through the night? This could be the look for you! There are a million different ways to pull your hair up out of your face, and they can be fancy or casual.

A fancy updo can include curling your hair, braiding it and adding in hair accessories. This look would be perfect for a fancy dinner or a dance. A casual updo can be as simple as a five minute messy-bun, perfect for a fun movie night or while decorating sugar cookies!

3. Red Hot Hair & Lips

The color red symbolizes passion, love and desire. It is the most common color to represent Valentine’s Day. If you are in love this year and want to express your bold confidence, try the red look! Wearing red lipstick can catch your lover’s attention. Add some vibrant shades of red into your hair for the hottest look! Here are a few tips to maintain this hair color:

  • Wash your hair less frequently by using a dry shampoo
  • Use a heat protectant and limit the heat on your hair
  • Protect your hair from the sun by wearing a hat
  • Use a shampoo and conditioner that will keep your hair color vibrant

4. Flirty Curls & Smokey Eye

There are so many different ways to curl hair, and we’re loving these bouncy curls for Valentine’s Day! They are flirty and fun! The key to great hair on Valentine’s Day is making it last throughout the whole night. The tighter the curl, the longer it will hold. You can also use these products to perfect your curls.

The smokey eye makeup never goes out of style. It can be a fun way to draw attention to your eyes. The smokey eye can be done by dragging out darker greys or blacks to the outer edge of your eyes. Do you usually wear a natural eyeshadow look? Try stepping out of your comfort zone to try a darker, flirty look.

Lavender is also a fun style for Valentine’s Day. It’s no secret that colored hair is trending! For a soft loveable look this holiday, try purple! This hair color could look stunning with shades of purple and pink makeup. Try this look with a purple or black dress.

6. Sassy & Sweet Braids

Some hairstyles look good without even trying! Braids can be sassy and sweet. There are a variety of ways to braid your hair from pigtails to french braids. Try braiding your hair a few different ways and see which one you love. Some fun ways to braid your hair might be dutch braids or fishtail braids. Braids tend to hold their shape, so you can stay out the whole night!

7. Tied With a Bow

A simple, effortless hairstyle is one that’s tied with a bow. Pull your hair back into a ponytail, or half way up, and tie it up with a bow. This look can be easy, and it can make you look more put together than a regular ponytail. If you are running behind or getting off work late, this might be the perfect look for you!
