5 Hot hairstyles from Instagram for Valentine’s day
Accent braid with undone curls
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, everyone knows that curly hairstyles are the business. And, if you’re keen to make yourself stand out from the crowd, you should try pairing a fashion-forward accent braid with undone curls, a la beauty vlogger Carli Bybel. Credit: @carlibel
To get masses of texture and volume, you’ll need to curl your hair with a curling tong, working on 2 inch-wide sections of hair at the time, curling your strands in different directions to get that effortless-tousled look. Once you’ve done that, weave your accent braid and finish off with some TRESemmé Perfectly Undone Ultra-Brushable Hairspray, to give your V-day style tonnes of staying power!
Romantic low bun
Sexy? Check. Romantic? Check. Super easy? Double check! If you’re looking for a simple but stylish ‘do to rock on V-day, this beautiful low bun hairstyle is certainly the one for you. Credit: @rozannapurcell
To get the look, simply gather your hair into a low ponytail and then create a bun, by twisting your pony form a bun shape. Secure with some bobby pins and you’re done! And if you really want to up the ante, follow in this Instagrammer’s footsteps and gently pull a few tendrils of hair free from the front, for an extra romantic feel.
Double milkmaid braids
If braided hairstyles are more you’re cup of a tea, why not try a gorgeous double milkmaid braid? While this ‘do looks complicated, it really isn’t (it’s just 2 pigtails pinned up!). Unconvinced? Just follow our milkmaid braid tutorial and remember to divide your hair into 4 sections, instead of 2! Credit: @lyssryann
Editor’s tip: Make your braids a shimmering masterpiece on Valentine’s, by generously spraying some TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Shine Hairspray. Trust us: your date won’t take their eyes off you or your mane!
The coily afro
All you need to do to get the look, is to give your mane a generous spritz of the TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Hydrating Mist, which will help keep it conditioned and make it smell amazing, too! Then, use some of the Lynx Natural Look Flexible Control Cream, to finger coil your ‘do to perfection.
Victoria Secret’s-inspired waves are every girl’s go-to look for a dinner date, but if you fancy doing something a little different, why not give your wavy ‘do a highly polished finish? The key to this slick ‘do lies within the VO5 Sublime Sleek Creation Hairspray. After creating waves, just mist some of the hairspray all over your locks to give your mane that defined, and ultra sultry finish! Credit: @emanmakeup
