Valentine’s Day is almost here and you are surely busy getting everything ready for your date night. Make-up? Check. Dress? Check. Shoes? Check. Hairstyle? Almost there. Your hair completes your look, so even if you already have everything ready, your look wouldn’t be as great without a good and suitable hairstyle. Moreover, you should know what you need to have to achieve the perfect look for date night. Here is a quick checklist on how you can prep your hair for your date night.
Your Valentine’s Date Night Checklist
1. Get enough rest.
Rest is very important, as you wouldn’t want to look stressed and haggard on V-Day. 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.
Editor’s tip: Get your hair date night-ready by washing it with VO5 Revive Me Daily Shampoo. It refreshes your limp hair and gives it more life to make styling it easier. Use it with VO5 Revive Me Daily Conditioner for the best results.
2. Blow-dry your hair.
Whether you’re putting your hair up in a bun or loosely in waves or curls, blow drying it beforehand is a great way to get your hair in shape. It gives it bouncier curls and added volume which you cannot get with just an air-dry. Even if your hair is short, blow-drying it can make it look styled and ready for date night.
Editor’s tip: Blow drying frequently, just like using other heat styling tools, can cause your hair to dry up and get damaged. Make sure to give it a few spritzes of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray to protect it from heat. This spray also helps tame frizz, giving your hair a smoother finish.
3. Keep extra bobby pins and elastics in your purse.
This is practical when you have hard-to-manage hair. You don’t want any loose strands falling on your face, do you? So, keep a set of bobby pins and elastics in your purse just in case you need a quick touch up.
4. Bring a small bottle of leave-on cream.
If your hair gets frizzy on the way to the restaurant, or if you want to add extra shine to your hair before saying hello to your beau, just apply a drop of leave-on cream on your hair. Its subtle fragrance can also help make your hair smell fresh for date night.
Editor’s tip: Use Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream to tame frizz and make your hair smooth in an instant. It is light and non-greasy so you can easily apply it on your hair without the fuss.
5. Don’t underestimate the power of finger-combing.
Sometimes, all you need are your fingers to fix your hair. Finger-combing your hair can help get rid of tangles, while scrunching your hair can fluff it up and give it more body.
