If you think picking the right outfit for that date is hard, then you’d think choosing the right hairstyle is harder. The hairstyle needs to be perfect because you’re showing him that he made the perfect choice of a date. You want all eyes on you when the two of you walk into that restaurant or bowling alley. And you want him to notice all of the eyes staring at your beauty to the point where he pulls you closer to him to show them that you’re with him.
1. Half Up, Half Down
This is a classical and simple hairstyle. I think it gives us girls an innocent look. If you’re the type who doesn’t know how to do anything to your hair, I do recommend choosing this hairstyle for your date because it is really simple and still cute. And you can add some accessories to your hair to enhance the hairstyle like a sparkly headband or a bow for the ponytail portion. Again, this is simple and cute for a date and works with short and long hair.
2. Loose Waves
You can have the half up and down hairstyle with loose waves or just have your hair down with loose waves, but the loose waves look is the perfect hairstyle for a date. It makes the hair look voluminous and it’s super sexy. Your date will not stop staring at them because he’s going to be thinking about running his fingers through your hair after the date or he’s thankful that he’s going to be running his fingers through that hair forever.
3. Sleek High Ponytail
You can stick with another classic hairstyle, which is the sleek high ponytail look. Not only does it give an innocent look but it’s sexy and elegant. For all of my black beauty queens, I highly recommend letting your baby hair out and slicking it down. You can choose to leave the ponytail the way it is or you can add a headband to match your outfit.
4. Half “Shaved” Look
No, this doesn’t mean to literally shave your head (unless you want to). There’s an alternative to those who don’t want to shave their heads. One half of your hair needs to be down (loose) and the other is to appear to be shaved but you can just braid that half. This is a cute rebellious look (and needs to pair with a leather jacket) that makes you look badass. Your date will love this hairstyle and will love even more his date looks more badass than him.
5. Braided Updo
This is another elegant hairstyle and perfect for romantic and fancy dinner and movie dates. I also think this is better if it’s humid outside because it’s more protective. I love this hairstyle because it makes a lot of girls look like southern belles, which is gorgeous. Your date will be impressed and will wonder what you look like with your hair down since you look so beautiful with your hair up. I do think, to spice it up, you will need a cute hair brooch.
6. Braided Side Ponytail
This is another simple and gorgeous hairstyle for your date with him. A lot of girls wear this hairstyle when they don’t have time to do any other one, but it still looks gorgeous and I know your date will think the same.
You can straighten your hair, which a lot of guys like to see because they know they want to run their fingers through it. On a date, straight hair makes it easier for you to get a guys’ attention by flipping it, twirling it, or bringing it to one side.
8. Tight Curls
I like to call tight curls “popping curls” because they, well, POP. For this date, break out the curling iron or the rollers and make your curls tight. It’s sexy and adds a lot of volume to your hair. Plus, some guys find it mesmerizing when the girl’s curls bounce, which is how you want your curls to be for this hairstyle to work its magic.
9. Crown Braid
Show your date what a queen you are with this cute crown braid hairstyle. Use this hairstyle for the fancy dinner date, since it’s more elegant. But be prepared when he asks how you got it this way.
I think bangs are super duper cute and great for that date with him. You can choose to have your hair down, up, half up and down, on the side, etc., for this hairstyle. Bangs go perfectly with long, short, and medium hair. It gives an elegant, fierce, and innocent look. You must wear this on your date!
11. Faux Braid Mohawk
Here’s another punkish hairstyle that will make you look even more badass. For that laidback date at the bar or at a loud restaurant, I highly recommend choosing this hairstyle for your date. It’s sexy, fierce, hot, and will win his heart. Your date better watch out!
12. Sleek High Bun
Also known as a ballerina bun, this hairstyle is very sophisticated and for those dates that are sophisticated. I only like wearing a bun on dates if I am planning on wearing dangling earrings, which I recommend wearing if you are planning on wearing this on the date. I would also advise you to wear a cute headband to make the hairstyle more interesting.
13. Side Chignon
This is known to be worn for weddings (the bride) but I still think it’s perfect for your date. It is meant for longer hair and I recommend having a nice hair brooch and dangling earrings when wearing it.
Remember that episode of New Girl when Jess and Cece got blowouts and the guys were mesmerized? I kid you not, blowouts are sexy and will make a guy beg for your number. When your date sees you with this hairstyle, he will want to eat more than the dinner the two of you will have. So, get the blowout.
Good luck on your date and I hope this helped you decide what you want to wear. Let me know in the comments the hairstyle you went with and how the date went.
