Deciding on a Valentine’s Day hairstyle should be the next item on your holiday to-do list. The day will be here before you know it (after all, it’s just a week away). You’re probably feeling pretty confident by now about your look for the big night since we’ve already provided plenty of outfit, nail art and makeup inspo. But now it’s time to tackle the finishing touch, otherwise known as the ideal ‘do. Whether you’re looking for prim and proper, something a little more low-key or anything between, we’ve got you covered. We rounded up the best Valentine’s Day hairstyles from recent runways that are surprisingly easy to do and work IRL.
What are the best Valentine’s Day hairstyles?
We tend to favor low ponytails and cool updos for the biggest date night of the year. If you’re set on leaving your hair down, try a face-framing technique like partial finger waves or some hair jewelry to liven up your locks. You should also consider what you’ll be wearing and your makeup look so everything ties together.
How easy are they to do?
It’s important to pick a hairstyle that won’t take away precious time you plan on spending with your sweetie. So you want to make sure you go with a style you can do relatively quickly. If you’re a pro when it comes to braiding, you should be able to weave your low pony in a flash. But if you tend to struggle, go the easier route by simply tying up your tail with a red ribbon or securing it with a barrette. In the end, it’s all about your comfort level. There’s no need to stress yourself out trying to create the “perfect” hairdo.
