Valentine’s Day Hair
Perfect your Valentine’s Day look with these beautiful date hair ideas by our UK Creative Director, Kieron Fowles…
Look One: Elegant Updo
Step One: Smooth Designline Root Boost Volumizing Foam through towel-dried lengths and ends before blow drying.
Step Two: Once hair is dry, comb through TIGI Bed Head Control Freak and loosely curl 2-3 inch sections using the ghd Curve Classic Wave Wand. Brush through with a paddle brush to soften and spray with Sebastian Shine Shaker.
Step Three: Separate the hair horizontally, as if you were creating a half-up, half down style. Secure the bottom section out of the way for now.
Step Four: Gently backcomb the roots of the top section to add lift, before gathering the hair together and twisting it. Secure in place using hair pins.
Step Five: Release the bottom section of hair and gather together with the top section into a loose ponytail. Roll the ponytail up on itself, finishing just beneath the twist and pin into place.
Step Six: Pull a few strands loose to frame the face and create a more effortless finish. Seal with a spritz of Redken Quick Dry.
Look Two: Twisted Ponytail
Step One: Begin by curling the hair, following step one from the previous style and smooth down with Paul Mitchell Gloss Drops.
Step Two: Separate hair into two sections, pinning the hair in front of your ears out of the way.
Step Three: Split the remaining hair into three sections. Secure the middle section with a loose elastic before pushing the ponytail through itself (above the elastic) to create a twist.
Step Four: Backcomb the remaining outer sections before bringing the left section across the centre ponytail and wrapping it around the base. Repeat with the right section.
Step Five: Release the front section of hair and gently bring back small sections at a time, pinning them into the central twist.
Step Six: Leave a few strands loose at the front and finish with a spritz of Designline Freeze Spray Firm Hold Mist.
Look Three: Side Twist
Step One: Start by curling the hair as above.
Step Two: Split hair into two sections and loosely wrap around each other until you reach the end of the hair, secure with hair elastic and a spritz of Sebastian Shaper Fierce.
Step Three: Loosen a few stands around the face and down the length of the twist for a more dishevelled look. For extra volume at the roots, lightly backcomb before creating the twist.
