The holiday season has yet to pass, but that doesn't mean we aren't thinking about beauty trends in the year to come! The next big event to plan the perfect makeup look for? Valentine's Day, of course. Whether or not you have a Valentine, prep for the romantic season with a gorgeous hairstyle – and don't settle for basic waves!
Read on for 5 romantic hairstyles to adopt this Valentine's Day, and let Solange, Cara Delevingne, and Kerry Washington inspire your next date night hair look.
5 ROMANTIC HAIRSTYLES TO WEAR ON VALENTINE'S DAY
Cara Delevingne's retro, old Hollywood waves are one of the most romantic hairstyles, but the addition of a gold accessory modernizes the look. Loop a few strands of metal chain onto a bobby pin, then secure and hide the pin underneath.
To get waves like Cara's, part your hair over to one side then use a large barrel curling iron to curling the ends of your hair. Apply an oil or serum into your hair, then use a brush to brush out the curls and create soft, romantic waves.
TIGHT, VOLUMINOUS CURLS
Natural curls are inherently sexy, so brush yours out like Kerry Washington. Part your hair in the centre and massage hair oil throughout for maximum shine!
Lily Collins' twisted chignon combines a sleek middle part with a messy low bun. After parting your hair in the middle and curling the bottom half of your hair, twist both sides back and twirl random sections into a bun, securing where necessary. Leave a few stray pieces at the front to frame your face.
VOLUMINOUS SIDE BRAID
Give a side braid hairstyle some added texture by teasing at your crown and flipping your hair over for a messy deep part like Chloe Grace Mortez. This look is easy to pull together in just a few minutes if your short on time, keeps hair out of the way during a romantic dinner date, and looks stunning!
Vanessa Hudgens, a modern-day flower child, gave her crown braid a sweet touch with the addition of delicate flowers placed throughout. To get this look, section your hair off into two sections on each side of your head, then braid each section. Pull each one up to the top of your head to meet the other, then secure with bobby pins. Finish off by placing your flower embellishments throughout and you're date-night ready!
