Love it or loathe it, Valentine’s day is upon us and whether you’ll be hanging with your BAE or kickin’ it with the girls, you don't want to look like you’ve spent hours with your blow dryer and straightening iron. The most romantic hair is low-maintenance and feels totally natural. We’ve rounded up our favorite looks for the most romantic day of the year, and each is simple and utterly sexy.
Braids have been hot ever since making a comeback on the red carpet a few years ago, and since then, the plait has been getting increasingly more complicated. Fishtails, waterfalls, milkmaids… but a simple version is still an ultra- romantic style. Get the look by rubbing some Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Magic Volume Powder through your dry hair for added texture. Then weave your braid and rough it up by pulling on either side with your fingertips. Mist your braid with Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Crystal Shine Hair Spray for a glossy finish.
Put a new twist on the classic romantic bun by gathering up curly strands instead of straight ones. Run a few pumps of Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Omega 11-in-1 through your wet hair to help tame the curls, and let it air dry. Pull your hair up into a ponytail and separate it into four sections, twisting and looping each in different directions around the base of the elastic. Don’t be worried if it doesn’t look perfect. The haphazard construction is part of the appeal.
Smooth, shiny hair is always romantic. Get your silkiest locks by applying Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Satin Frizz Control Straightening Spray to damp hair. While blow-drying, use a medium-sized round brush and work from the bottom layers up. Pin the top portion out of your way and point the nozzle down to flatten the cuticle. To finish, Glide a flatiron over strands to subdue any fly-aways and spray with styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Hairspray.
A playfully, messy pony is an especially flirty style to go with on Valentine’s Day. Loose hair with tons of movement is such a hot look. Apply Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Mousse to your damp hair and blow-dry. Then use a medium barrel curling iron to curl your tresses from ears to ends. Using a fine-tooth comb, sweep hair up, secure it directly above your crown, and then wrap a few strands around the elastic. Mist on Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Hair Spray for extra voluminous curls and hold.
A high top knot is a chic way to show off your amazing bone structure. The key is to keep the look flirty and fun with wispy pieces grazing your temples and nape. This is also a great style to hide second-day hair. If you are working with hair that hasn’t been washed in a day or two, be sure to generously apply Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Dry Shampoo, before gathering your dry hair at the crown of your head. Secure your top knot with an elastic, and use the pointed end of a rattail comb to tug out a few strands. If they look stringy, rub them between your thumb and forefinger to give them a bit of fuzzy texture. Don’t set this style with any hairspray, this look only gets cuter, the messier it gets!
