Valentines Day is this week and if you need a little style inspo for your date night, this post is for you! I had a lot of fun creating these looks and getting a chance to play with my wigs again! This year, Valentines falls on a Tuesday, so I'm just curious, who will be celebrating the day of, and who will wait until the weekend? Do you and your special someone exchange gifts, or do you go and have a fun date night, or both? This year, with Alex and I's trip to South America coming up in just a week (eeek! so excited!) and so we decided to keep our Valentines low-key. That's why I love these styles, because they are all simple enough for a date night in, or a night on the town. So whether you're going on a hot date or spending some quality time at home, I hope you find these hair styles cute and inspiring. Enjoy!
Half Up / Half Down Hair Heart
I mean, it doesn't get any more perfect than this Instagram worthy hair heart style. This is a cute + easy look that is so perfect for a fun date night! To recreate this style, check out this tutorial.
Love is in the Hair / Heart Hair Stencil
How fun is this hair stencil? This was a super easy DIY, I simply cut out a heart shape from a piece of heavy stock paper, then used Joico InsaTint spray in the color Fiery Coral. I have InstaTint sprays available in Mermaid Blue, Orchid, Pink, Sapphire Blue + Fiery Coral. Grab one for yourself at your next salon visit.
Topsy Twists / Pull Through Braid
Two slightly different but equally adorable styles if you'd like to wear your hair off to one shoulder (super sexy) In the first picture, I created topsy twists by creating a ponytail, then pulling the ends through the base of ponytail, then repeat all the way to the ends, creating small twisted ponys all the way down. Here is a visual breakdown for this look. For the second look, I created a pull-through braid. I am currently in love with this braid because it looks unique and fancy, but it's actually so easy to do! Here's a how-to on how to create a pull-through braid.
Braided Bohemian Beauty
If you're going out, chances are that it could be a warm day on Valentines (Florida is awesome like that) and you may want to wear your hair up and off your neck, and this would be a simple and elegant style. To create this look I made two fishtail braids and then pinch + pulled each stand to make both braids thicker and to give them an "undone" texture. Then i simply wrapped them around the back of my head and secured them with bob pins. To give this look the final touch, I accessorized with this precious hair comb from NEEKAS.
