5 Valentine’s Day-Approved Hairstyles to Try


With Valentine’s day nearly here, you may have already planned a red or pink fit for the day. Maybe you have date night plans with a significant other, or you intend on staying in, drinking wine, and hosting the ultimate “Galentine’s” evening. Regardless of what your day will look like, there’s no reason not to get festive with your hair look. Here is a roundup of a few Valentine’s Day hairstyles that are sure to steal the spotlight this love-filled day. 

Heart Buzz Cut

If you already have a shaved head and want to go above and beyond this February, painting hearts on your hair is one way to truly embody this holiday. You could go to a professional, or simply ask for the help of an artistic friend. If you were to achieve this style at home, Lime Crime carries six Valentines-approved shades of their “Unicorn Semi-Permanent Hair Dye”, including “sour candy”, “bubblegum rose”, “strawberry jam”, “juicy”, “lipstick”, and of course, “valentine”. 

Glamorous Updo with a Pop of Red 

If you have formal dinner plans and want to “up” your typical hair routine, try out this glam updo! Leave the framing pieces of your hair out and curl them. The rest of your hair can be put up in loose spirals for a red-carpet approved style! Bonus points if you include red highlights. 

Flirty Loose Ponytail

If you are someone who lives for a sleek bun look, Valentine’s day is a great time to step out of your comfort zone. This perfectly messy ponytail is easy to achieve, but sure to make you feel like a million bucks, especially if you conceal the hair tie by wrapping a thin portion of your hair around it! 

High Volume Curls 

Although we are in the age of the natural, heatless curl look, Valentine’s day is a great excuse to experiment with a more voluminous style. Take your curling wand out of hibernation and add some texture spray for a gorgeous and fun look. 

Red and Pink Gemini Hair 

If you are someone who loves the Gemini hair trend, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to embrace it! A vibrant pink and deep red two-tone color combo will leave you and anyone you see in the love day spirit this year.
