Valentine’s Day is almost here! Are you ready for your date night? You may be celebrating V-Day by having a chill binge-watching session, a virtual date, or a homecooked dinner date at home, but it doesn’t mean you can’t glam up for the occasion! You can definitely dress up and do your hair for date night. To help you out, here is a quick checklist on how you can prep your hair for your date night.
How to Get Ready for Your Date Night
1. Get enough rest.
We get it, you’re excited, but make sure to get enough sleep especially on days before your date night so you get that glow. Your hair will thank you as well, as stress can make your hair look dull and unhealthy.
2. Use a shampoo that helps make your hair smooth.
Make sure your hair is prepped well for any hairstyle you will create on Valentine’s Day. Wash your hair with a shampoo that helps keep your hair sleek and smooth, like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo. It tames frizz and flyaways, detangles your hair, and adds shine so you get salon-gorgeous hair.
3. Treat your hair with a hair mask.
Pamper your hair a few days or a week before your date night. Apply a hair mask that nourishes and moisturizes your hair. You can even give your hair a keratin treatment right at home!
Editor’s tip: Want straighter, smoother hair? Use Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Straight Treatment Crème. It has keratin relaxers that tame frizz; keratin serum that helps in reviving damaged hair; and keratin essence to restore shine and moisture to dry hair. Just apply to your hair after shampooing, leave it on for three minutes, then rinse your hair thoroughly afterwards.
4. Make sure your hair is dry before you straighten or curl it.
Your hair is at its weakest when it’s wet, so it’s best not to subject it to stress. Avoid tying or braiding wet hair. Straightening your hair with a flat iron or curling your hair when it’s wet is also a no-no! Instead, wait for it to dry before you style it. You can either air-dry it or blow-dry it. Just set your hairdryer to the lowest heat setting to minimize damage.
5. Have your favorite hairstyling products and tools ready.
No matter how you’re planning to style your hair, there are hairstyling staples that you should have on your dresser. These include the right hair brush for your hair type, hair rollers or curlers, hairsprays, and hair ties and bobby pins to secure your hairstyle. Make sure you have what you need before Valentine’s Day so your date night preps will be smooth-sailing.
Editor’s tip: Make your hairstyle last long with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Boost Hold Hairspray. It gives your hair a brushable hold that helps your hairstyle last long without making your hair stiff and sticky.
Simple Hairstyles for Date Night
Now that you have prepared your hair for date night, here are the hairstyles you can try!
1. Relaxed Waves
Glam up for your date night by creating gorgeous waves using a curling iron or a curling wand. If you don’t have these styling tools, you can roll sections of your hair around hair rollers, blow-dry your hair to set the shape, and voila! You’re all set.
Editor’s tip: Your hair may get damaged with all the tugging and pulling involved when styling. Use Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner, which has keratin-infused capsules that go deep into your strands to repair the damage. It leaves your hair recovered, beautiful, and more resilient to future damage in just one minute.
2. Bouncy Bob
Make your bob full of volume and life! Just blow-dry it while brushing it inwards to keep it from looking flat. The result is a bouncy bob that’s also smooth and frizz-free.
3. Glamorously Straight Hair
Whether your hair is long, medium-length, or short, you can cop this look. After your hair has dried, clip the upper half section of your hair, and start straightening one small section at a time using a flat iron. Repeat until all sections of your hair have been straightened. That’s it!
Editor’s tip: For straighter hair with VitaKeratin Expert Salon Treatment Brazilian Straight. It has keratin that helps make your hair straight and smooth and Brazilian nut oil that coats your strands. It is also infused with Vitamin B3 to give your hair the nourishment it needs.
4. Side-parted and Clipped
Wanna go simple yet elegant and sweet? Then, go for this side-parted and clipped hairstyle. It is very easy to make and only requires a small yet stylish clip. You can also create loose, big curls for added sophistication.
5. Twisted Bangs
Are your bangs at an awkward length? Just twist and clip them to get them off your face. It also suits whatever you have planned on your date night, whether you’re watching a movie at home or having a romantic barbecue night in your garden.
6. Braid Ponytail
Look simple but elegant with this hairstyle. You can wear a braided ponytail with your favorite dress or a chic blouse-and-jeans outfit.
Editor’s tip: If you love braiding or tying your hair, use Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo when you wash your hair. It has biotin that helps make your hair stronger as it grows and aloe vera to keep your hair nourished and healthy.
7. Side Braid
Want a more relaxed-looking braid? Try the side braid. Just put all your hair on one side and braid it. Tie the ends with a hair tie, then pull the sides of your braid to make it look fuller.
