Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and there’s a lot to plan, from picking out the perfect gift or restaurant to figuring out the night’s head to toe fashion statement. On top of that, is mastering a gorgeous, romantic hairstyle for date night or girls’ night in. Drybar has a few dreamy hairstyle suggestions so the day of love can be enjoyed, not spent fussing about hair.
With five locations across the Valley, Drybar is a go-to destination for all of your Valentine’s day plans. Here are a few hairstyles you can wear out (or in) this Valentine’s day!
The gift of jewels.
Jeweled hair accessories that is! This is a foolproof way to spice up straight hair while keeping it out of your face. This pop of sparkle hairstyle is sure to complete any dinner date, and stun your significant other.
How to achieve this look: First, prep the hair by using Drybar’s Liquid Glass Smoothing Shampoo or Conditioner. Then, style hair into a sleek, straight style using a flat iron. Try using a shine-enhancing oil or serum to deflect flyaways and frizz. Next, use a comb to brush hair behind the ears, and add jeweled bobby pins or barrettes to secure the hair (make it extra festive with red of pink accessories).
Romantic waves with hair accessories.
This is an effortless, sexy look that will put all eyes on you. The classic, big curls paired with a few fun hair accessories make for a timeless Valentine’s Day look.
How to achieve this look: To make sure each piece is curled, section the hair off, and tie or clip about three-quarters of it on the crown of the head to keep it out of the way. Curl the ends of the hair into loose, big curls using a 1.5-inch barrel curling iron. Run fingers through hair for instant body and volume. Add a few jeweled bobby pins or other trendy hair accessories to make the look feminine and fresh. Finish it off with Drybar’s Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairstyle to hold and secure those bouncy curls!
Face framing mini braids.
If big, complex braids are too much of a commitment this Valentine’s Day, opt for a few smaller, tighter braids that peak through textured curly hair or a retro flipped hairstyle. This style is perfect for day-old hair because of the freedom of messier curls or a perfectly fresh, trendy look with retro-inspired flipped ends. This look is sure to keep your date or girlfriends guessing!
How to achieve this look: Start by dividing the hair into sections and clipping about three-quarters off the neck. Be sure to spray heat protectant on the hair to avoid split ends and dryness. Use a 1-inch barrel curling iron to achieve tousled waves. Instead of wrapping the same sized pieces of hair around the barrel over and over, try changing up the size every couple curls for even more texture. For the retro flip, simply take the ends of dry straightened hair and use a curling iron or round brush to flip ends upward. After your styling is complete, take small sections in front of and behind the ear, and braid. Secure with a clear elastic. It’s your preference if you want the braids to be poking out, sitting on top of them, or both! The braids should end up being about the width of a finger. Five to six braids framing the face should do the trick. To complete the look, spray Drybar’s Triple Sec 3-in-1 Texturizing Finishing Spray.
Eat your chocolates and drink your wine while wearing the perfect hairstyle this Valentine’s day! All of these looks can be styled at home, but if you need any assistance on the big day, swing by Drybar and meet with a stylist to recreate the magic.
