Valentine’s Hair: 3 Super Cute Hairstyles in a Few Easy Steps

0

Valentine’s Day 2022 is here, and February 14th is right around the corner! We all love to get dolled up and rock our cute Valentine’s ensembles, but this year instead of trying just a pretty red lip, or cute heart shaped earrings, how about adding a different hairstyle in the mix that’s just as cute and stylish as the outfit you plan to wear? Whether you have a hot date scheduled, another regular day at work or just a quiet night in, here are three of my favorite, very cute and super easy hairstyles to try. These are not only for all of you fabulous mommas but also for your Mini Me too and can totally be rocked at work and/or school. Please note these styles are ideal for shoulder length and longer hair.

1. Spray hair with a bit of volumizing hairspray and brush the hair up high at the crown of the head.
2. When on your last rotation of pulling the ponytail through the hair tie, stop pulling ponytail partly through and place the rest of the hair in the front of the head.
3. Fan the hair into two sections on top of the head. This will create the bow.                
4. Take the front piece and bring upward and over in the center of the bow and bobby pin the hair behind the bow. You will need to tuck the hair when pinning to hide it beneath or behind the back of the bow.
5. Fluff the bow a little and then secure the bottom sections of the bow to the head using bobby pins.
6. Finish with a bit of extra hold hairspray.

 

For flyaways and/or frizzy edges you can always use a bit of gel, edging cream or extra hold hairspray. Feel free to play around with the styles and make them your own, and don’t forget to let me know which style is your favorite.

Stay Beautiful and Happy Valentine’s Day! XOXO
