Valentine’s Day hairstyles may bring imagery of loose curls and playful waves to mind, but if you are looking for a shakeup on the usual holiday beauty looks, opting for a quirky and stylish hairstyle allows you to stand out from the crowd easily.
To get a come-hither look that’ll definitely keep them guessing, here are six quirky hairstyles to try for Valentine’s Day.
6 Quirky Hairstyles We Can't Resist
1. Heart Braid
Braids always look chic and polished, but if you want a change from the usual French and fishtail styles, trying out a heart braid can look both festive and glamorous. To get this creative look, start by creating a middle part, and create two reverse French braids on either side of the head. Continue to braid behind the ears, and then join the ends of each braid together. Secure into place with a barrette or an elastic, and spray Bed Head Maxxed Out Massive Hold Hairspray for maximum hold.
2. Messy Undercut Updo
Undercuts prove to be an edgy and fashion-forward style, especially when the look is full of playful texture. To create a sexy date night look, create a messy top knot updo on the top part of your head for maximum impact. For added texture, sprinkle the Bed Head by TIGI Sugar Dust Root Powder onto your roots for a sultry and messy effect.
3. Space Buns
Another fun look comes space buns, which can work for all sorts of ‘Galentine’s and Valentine’s festivities. To get this ‘90s-inspired look, start by brushing your hair with a paddle brush, and proceed to part your hair in the center. To create those flirty buns, simply create two pigtails on either side of the head, and twist and roll each section up into a bun. Yep, it’s really that simple!
4. Bubble Ponytail
A volumized pony definitely looks elegant and sophisticated, but if you want to give this classic look a necessary revamp, opting for a bubble ponytail makes for a truly exciting look. This look tends to be fairly easy, so you don’t have to worry about being a top-notch hair guru to achieve this style correctly. To pump up your pony, simply section off different parts of your ponytail with elastics. And if you aren’t exactly a hair beginner, try adding some braids to your bubble ponytail for an unexpected twist.
5. Disco Waves
But if you really can’t part from sexy waves, disco waves make a refreshing spin on the usual wave and curl looks. To achieve this retro style, start by working the Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Souffle Mousse onto your damp hair. Next, use a blowdryer to create noticeable lift and volume. Once completely dried, use a curling iron or hot rollers to create that come-hither wave.
6. Quirky Accessories
However, if you really want an easy style that doesn’t require a lot of time and effort, know that the right accessories can help transform any look. Bows in particular scream instant romance, so don’t be afraid to jazz up top knots, buns, and ponytails with any bow clips or barrettes.
