Another year, another Valentine’s Day. Some might think this Hallmark holiday is a drag, but why not celebrate love? Plus, it’s something we all desperately need after the isolated year we’ve just had. To get you in the mood, we’ve come up with three romantic Valentine’s Day looks that couldn’t be easier to create. Plus, they are the styles that are most flattering for virtually every face shape! Read on to figure out which look you like best.
This curly look will have Cupid’s arrow following you wherever you go. There’s just something so dreamy about billowing ringlets. Though it’s an easy look to figure out, it does come with some specifics that you should keep in mind. For instance, you need the proper curler. A ceramic curler with a thinner barrel is your best bet. Ceramic will ensure that your locks aren’t stripped of their moisture. A thinner barrel is optimal as you’ll need to brush out tight ringlets to get that billowing effect. The UnBrush is perfect because it prevents your hair from catching. For this look, curl your strands in the same direction and top it off with extra-hold hairspray and a dash of shine mist.
If you’re seeking something on the sexier side, go with this polished straight style. Contrary to popular belief, the secret sauce to sleek locks isn’t necessarily a straightener. While it certainly gets the job done, you need to begin your styling process by blow drying first. Flip your damp hair over and dry your hair upside down. Once it’s totally dry, grab a small straighter. Depending on your hair type, you might only need this tool for touch-ups. Drying your hair upside down before beginning to straighten maintains volume without letting your strands fall flat. The Limited Edition Pink Chrome Platform Nano Weight Pro 1900 Turbo Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Dryer is one of the lightest and powerful professional dryers on the market. It will dry your hair without stripping it of vital moisture. Plus, we love that it’s pink! A mini flat iron is perfect for touch ups and stubborn waves. Top this look off with satin treatment for an extremely silky finish.
Valentine’s Day is normally one of the biggest days for salons because everyone wants a beautiful blow out! This year, things are a little different. But you can still get that gorgeous and effortless look from home. And, here’s a little tip: You don’t need a blowdryer to do it! The Platform Stylus Pro Heated Brush is one of the best kept secrets in hairstyling. This brush is the easiest way to achieve that blow out look without going through the exhaustive process of drying with a separate round brush. This tool turns that entire process into one easy step and cuts your styling time in half! It’s also awesome because it’s narrow enough to create tighter waves if that’s what you’d prefer. Simply spin your sectioned hair around the brush, hold it, and pull through as you normally would. If you opt for more defined waves, make sure that you’ve got the hairspray to hold it without making it look crunchy (hint: Variable Hold Dry Hair Spray is powerful but incredibly lightweight!). Because you’ll be holding heat directly to wet hair, make sure that you use primer. A drop of Express Blow Out Serum will also go a long way in terms of adding soft and airy volume.
