Valentine’s Day is a super special holiday and a great excuse to get all dressed up and look and feel your best. Whether you plan to spend the holiday with your significant other, friends or family, you’ll still want to get all glammed up. Picking the perfect blowout style for your Valentine’s Day date is a crucial part of your look. This list will offer several different blowout styles to give you major hair inspiration for this special day. These looks can all be achieved with the help of a stylist at a salon or you can recreate the styles on your own at home.
1. Sleek And Straight
You really just can’t go wrong with a pin straight hairstyle. This look will never go out of style because of how put together and classic it is. This hairstyle fits with almost any outfit and accessories. I recommend pairing a straight hairstyle with accessories, such as necklaces and statement earrings. Since the hairstyle is so simple, it leaves you room to give more attention to your outfit and accessories. This hairstyle can be achieved with a paddle brush or round brush and a blow dryer. You simply section off your hair. Then, use tension with the brush to pull your hair straight and move the dryer across your hair as you brush through it. You may have to go over the section several times until you get the look you desire. I also recommend finishing this look by applying a smoothing serum all over your hair to minimize frizz and flyaways. The serum will ensure that your hair looks silky and shiny.
2. Loose Waves
Loose waves have been a huge hair trend lately, which make this look perfect for your Valentine’s Day date. This look is also fairly simple to achieve on your own, which is great for those who don’t like to spend too much time on their getting ready routine. Loose waves are a great alternative to more traditional tighter curls. They give a beautiful, beachy and simple look. In order to do this look, you also start with sectioning off your wet hair. Instead of pulling your hair straight as you would to do the first look, you use a round brush to slightly curl your hair away from your face. You can also use your fingers to twist the curls to your liking after you run through your hair with the dryer. If you want a more messy look, you can finish by brushing through your hair, which helps the curls fall and look more natural. I recommend finishing this style by spraying hair spray all over to ensure that the curls stay intact throughout your Valentine’s Day date.
3. Old Fashioned Curls
Tight curls are another classic hairstyle. I love this look for more formal occasions where you want to look like you’ve put a lot of effort into your appearance. Tight curls give the impression that you spent a lot of time styling your hair into perfection. However, this look is still pretty simple to do and only requires a few tools. As in all the other styles, you start by sectioning off your hair. The way to achieve tight curls is very similar to the technique to get loose waves. I recommend using a smaller round brush in order to create smaller and therefore tighter curls. When you are curling your hair in an outwards motion with the round brush, just make sure to apply the heat from the blow dryer for at least 10-15 seconds. This heat will help the curl form and give you the tight curls that you want. Then, you repeat this process for all of the sections of your hair. The end result should be a lot of small curls. You can also go in with a small curling iron to touch up any sections of hair that didn’t curl the way you wanted. If you want a more natural look, you can use your fingers or a brush to comb out the curls, so they don’t look as structured. You should also set this hairstyle with hairspray to make your curls last as long as possible.
4. Straight With Curled Ends
This style is great for girls who can’t make up their mind about what hairstyle they want. It’s a little twist on the classic straight hairstyle. However, adding a slight curl at the end makes the look pretty and class for the perfect Valentine’s Day date look. In order to get this look, section off your hair to start. Then using a large round brush, use tension to pull your hair straight and apply heat. Then at the ends of your hair, turn your wrist to curl the bottom few inches of your hair away from your face. This look is easy to achieve and a great style. It’s a great option for girls who typically wear their hair straight, but just want a slight variation of that style. The great thing about using a blow dryer to do this look is that you have complete control over how much curl you add at the end of your hair. You can really make this look completely your own. Again, use hairspray to spray all over your hair and keep your look in place.
