Valentine’s Day is slowly but surely approaching, and what better way to make a good impression on your significant other, or yourself, than by trying out a new hairstyle? Whether you want to look great for your own personal benefits or to impress a loved one, here are some great ideas to make this coming Valentine’s Day one to remember, and how to achieve those looks.
If you are looking for a new hair style but aren’t the best with trying new looks, try looking on Pinterest and YouTube for step-by-step instructions via writing or video. Many people learn best by watching a tutorial and trying it themselves. Here are some of our favorite looks for the upcoming season:
If you’re chasing after a simple look, a popular and attractive hair style that works for any age or hair type is a traditional bun – various pictures show that this can be made unique to Valentine’s Day by weaving colorful hearts or ribbons into your hair.
Looking to avoid anything flashy but still want a cute look? Here’s how you can create a “ribbon” appearance in your hair using just a ponytail holder and bobby pins. After making sure you have your hair clean and brushed, the following steps will help you in making a memorable hair look this February:
- Begin by pulling your hair into a ponytail. This will be easier to do if you have hair that is either shoulder-length or longer, as you will have more flexibility in the size of the bun and amount of ribbon style you are able to create.
- Double check the ponytail is right in the center of your head so that you are guaranteed an attractive bun where you’d like it.
- Using only the top layer of your hair, create a “loop” and pull that into the ponytail.
- After creating that loop, apply the same method with the bottom layer of your hair and separate those into two different loops.
- Use bobby pins to hold the hair in place.
Do you like flowers, or are you hoping to get a beautiful bouquet this year? Give your partner a hint by creating a floral wreath for your hair! This is a trend that will never go out of style and is beautiful for all ages. One way to do this is by curling your hair first or using products so it will hold volume (making it easier for a floral wreath to sit on top) and use bobby pins to secure the wreath. Hair florals can be purchased at craft stores or online for very cheap, but you’ll look priceless!
Another fashionable and fun style with these floral wreaths is by taking small pieces of your hair at a time and wrapping them around the wreath so it will form almost a halo with flowers peeking out through your hair strands. It’s a simple yet beautiful hair look that will amaze your friends and significant others.
If you want to add hearts to your hair, there is a fun way to do this. Simply create two French braids on each side of your hair and pin them together to make a heart shape. If you don’t know how to do French braids and don’t have enough time to learn, you can easily mold your hair into a heart shaped ponytail or bun for a festive and cute look.
You can also change up your everyday look! If you usually wear your hair straight, try it curly or wavy or vice versa. It could surprise your partner and you may decide you want to wear your hair differently more often. You could also change up your look by changing the color. If you don’t want to commit to a brand-new hair color, you could use a temporary dye. This way, you can test a new shade or even go for a wild color like pink or red. You could also add a little temporary glitter or shine to complete your look.
Lastly, don’t forget that you can opt for festive headbands, barrettes, or scarves. There are tons of different options, including hats, that will be festive for the holiday of love. Get some barrettes that are heart-shaped and let them pull your hair back out of your face. Curl your hair and add a nice velvet headband to match your outfit. The possibilities are endless!
Remember, even if you don’t have a significant other or plans, you can still use this holiday to treat yourself to a new look or hair care product. If you don’t want to do your hair yourself, why not treat yourself to a day at the salon? Let someone else take care of your hair this year and make you look fabulous!
