3 Cute Hairstyles for Valentine’s Day
This Valentine’s Day hairstyle only looks complicated, but it’s actually quite simple to style at home. The chignon is basically a fancy bun. Except, instead of twisting the hair, you create a loose knot. This gives the hair more volume. That’s why we love this date hairstyle for fine or thin hair!
Start by applying a small amount of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir throughout your hair and comb to evenly distribute. This body-boosting treatment will help the knot of your chignon look more thick and full.
Next, pull your hair into a low ponytail and secure with a hair elastic. Grab your ponytail and twist it into a loop so that the ends are pointing upwards. Make sure to leave out an inch or two at the ends. Using bobby pins, secure the bottom of the loop at the nape of your neck. Then wrap the loose ends around the hair elastic and pin to secure.
Pull a few face-framing pieces from your chignon, then add waves to the pieces with a large-barreled curling iron or wand. Finish the look with a mist of hairspray, and you’re ready for Valentine’s Day!
Soft waves are a classic Valentine’s Day hairstyle, but we say turn up the volume and try these bouncy waves instead! For this look, you’ll need a hot roller set.
Next, evenly distribute a small amount of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir throughout your hair to add body to your final look. Blow dry hair or, if you have time, let your hair air dry.
Once your hair is completely dry, brush your hair and divide it into at least four sections. If you have thicker hair, you’ll want to create more sections. To create a curl, align a hot roller with the end of one hair section. Then roll up towards your scalp and secure with a pin. Repeat with all the sections of your hair.
Hint: for this look we suggest rolling the face-framing sections away from your face, then alternating the direction for every other roller.
Wait until the rollers are completely cool before removing them. In the meantime, you can use this time to do your makeup or get dressed. When cool, remove the curlers and gently shake out the curls with your fingers. Do not brush the curls! Then mist with hairspray to finish the look.
Sleek & Shiny
If you have wavy or curly hair, straightening your hair can be a fun way to change up your look for a special occasion like Valentine’s Day.
As with the Bouncy Waves style, the first step for this cute date hairstyle is to wash and condition your hair with Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo and Conditioner. Post-shower, remove any excess moisture from your hair with a microfiber or bamboo fiber towel. Then spritz hair with a heat protectant spray.
Next, section your hair with claw clips. Blow dry each section using a round brush to pull your hair taut as you dry. Aim the nozzle of the blow dryer downwards along the hair shaft to minimize frizz.
Once your hair is completely dry, straighten small sections of the hair with a flat iron. Finish with a mist of light-hold hairspray, and you’re done!
