If you’ve been looking for a reason to decorate everything, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do just that. If you have, congratulations and by all means best for your loved ones). That’s a great way to celebrate February 14th.
The best part is that you don’t have to be too bold or too complicated if you don’t have to. Experts say classic looks like a slicked-back bun or his voluminous 90s blowout make for the perfect Valentine’s Day hairstyle. If you want to go a little further out of the box, try Face Framing Baby Braids or Mini Half Buns to update your half-up, half-down look. Infinity.
Below, celebrity hairstylists Clayton Hawkins and David Lopez, professional stylist and K18 ambassador Eric Vaughan, and Dyson’s global hairstylist Matt Collins list nine things to consider for Valentine’s Day 2023. Analyzing hairstyles.
“Valentine’s Day is all about romance and love,” says Hawkins. “I think hair should be as tactile and soft as possible.” He recommends opting for his ’70s curls with a brush. For those with naturally curly or bouncy hair, he says, use a diffuser like the Dyson Supersonic Diffuser Attachment to add the desired volume. If your hair is naturally straight, use hot rollers to create waves in them and lift them with something like the Big SexyHair Root Pump Volumizing Mousse.
Instead of tying your ponytail high and tight, opt for a more relaxed one that is tied low around your ears. “Basically, this is best for long hair.”
He says he sprays hairspray onto the brush and then smooths out the strands to make them smooth. A tool that dries and curls at the same time. Brush the hair again to smooth it out, and add a black ribbon or bow to the base of the ponytail if you want to dress it up a bit more.
Giving it a carefree and bohemian vibe, Vaughn loves using baby braids to frame her face. With his hair down, he creates a center section, and on either side of the front he creates 1-inch sections, he says. Then braid each section and secure it with a small clear elastic.
Vaughn is a big fan of the old-fashioned smooth bun. He says he wants to condition his hair with a strengthening treatment like K18 Leave-in his Molecular Repair Treatment. Then dry your hair and apply shine serum and part your hair in the middle to create a low ponytail. Swipe twice to smooth out flyaways around hairline.
Need a hairstyle that looks good on everyone this Valentine’s Day? Collins says go for a romantic wave. He cuts off his hair and uses a hair dryer (his recommendation is his Dyson Supersonic) to smooth the hair section by section. He then grabs a flat iron. He says he creates bends by starting at his roots and pulling the section down while rotating the flatiron 180 degrees.When he’s done, he combs the waves with his fingers and adds texture spray to add volume. To do.
bouncy botticelli curls
Lopez suggests Botticelli-esque curls. For a better look, get a small hair iron (a T3 single-pass curl 0.75 is the perfect size for creating tight, bouncy curls, he says). Then he does what he calls “the twist out his technique” when curling. “[It] Basically, you should put a 2 inch section around the 0.75 iron so that it doesn’t curl too much and the hair is completely wrapped inside the barrel. Apply a little tension while twisting so that the curl collapses and flattens as you twist,” he says.
Once your hair is curled, I recommend a texturizing spray (I like Kenra Dry Volume Burst) to lift and separate the curls.
deep side part
Change hairstyles in seconds by simply changing parts. Vaughn is in favor of the return of his part on the side (millennials rejoice). He recommends using his Rat Tail comb to create very deep side parts and atomizing and defining the texture his spray. Then pull the parted side behind your ear and secure it with a hairpin and hairspray. If you want to up the glamor factor, he says, accessorize with a sparkly barrette.
Explosion of the 90’s
Whether you’re hanging out with friends or going out with your SO, the iconic ’90s supermodel blast is perfect for any occasion. Collins says to start by washing your hair, but skip conditioner and let your strands have extra volume. Add a volumizing spray or mousse to wet hair. To dry and curl at the same time, he likes to use his Dyson Airwrap to curl his hair away from his face. Once finished, brush and add texture his spray for extra lift.
half up top knot
Elevate the half-up, half-down look with a top knot. Vaughn says prep the hair with a texture spray to add grit. Then take a comb and divide the hair in half to create top and bottom sections. Pull and tease, forming a small bun. Secure with bobby pins and set in place with flexible hold hairspray.
