Ah, February—the month of love. Like it or loathe it, this month is full of romance and features the most popular holiday for couples—Valentine’s Day. That’s not to say that you can’t enjoy this day if you are single, if fact, quite the contrary is true. If you aren’t coupled up, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to gather up all of your single girlfriends and treat yourselves to a girlie night out!
Whatever you get up to though, make this V-day a glamorous one and go all out with your hair and makeup. Check out these hairstyles that are perfect for the upcoming Day of Love.
Soft and Feminine
Sophia Bush looks elegant and feminine here in side parted soft curls. This hairstyle is perfect for ladies who want a sweet and soft Valentine’s Day look, and also for those who want a more formal looking ‘do. To get this hairstyle, wash and dry the hair as usual, making a deep part on the side. Then use a curling iron or rollers to create ringlets in one-inch sections of hair around the head. Unroll them and then use hairspray to hold. Ladies with medium length hair can get this look using the same process, then rolling the hair under and pinning it into place at the nape of the neck to create a faux bob look.
For all the ladies looking to vamp it up on V-Day, Check out Nicola Peltz’s sexy bedhead look. This hairstyle can be created on any hair length, and will work best on straight or wavy hair textures. The key to getting this look is all in the blow-dry. While your hair is damp, add a roost boosting spray or mousse generously at the roots all over the head. Then blow-dry the hair upside down until the roots are dry, flip the head up and finish it off with a large round brush. Add in messy waves with a curling iron or wand on medium heat and then finish it all off with a sea salt spray to get that beachy bedhead effect.
Side-swept and Sleek
For something simple and sexy, you may want to try out Selena Gomez’s simple side-swept ‘do. This look can be created on any hair texture and will work on hair that is jaw length or longer. Start by using a smoothing crème on your damp hair and proceed to create a deep side part and blow dry your hair straight, slightly flipping the ends out. Finish it off with a smoothing serum for a glossy finish.
Short and Sassy
If you have short hair, that doesn’t mean you can’t jazz it up for Valentine’s Day. Check out Portia De Rossi’s ‘do to see what we mean. Her hair has been side parted, tucked behind one ear and some funky waves have been added in all over to pump up the volume and style. This is the perfect way for ladies with short hair to glam up their hair for a special evening out.
