This Valentine's Day, our eyes are set on romantic hairstyles that transition well from day to night. These looks are modern, feminine and easy-going, perfect for whatever your plans may be. As always, if you're unsure about how to create these styles on your own, talk with your PIN Salon stylist to learn additional techniques and product tips that will work specifically for your hair.
Ponytail Twist: We love this style because it's easy to do, yet delivers an interesting result. Simply gather your hair in a low ponytail at the base of the neck, loosen the ponytail and use your fingers to create a hole in the space between your scalp and the hairband. Take the ponytail and thread it into the hole then tighten the hairband again.
Sleek Blowout: A clean blowout is always in style, looks good on everyone, and is appropriate in almost any situation. However, as simple as it looks, a sleek blowout can actually be one of the most difficult styles to achieve at home. We suggest using a round brush as you blow-dry for added movement. If you have dry hair, don't forget to put a touch of oil on your ends! Tried all of those things and your blowout still doesn't look the way you want it to? Cave and call your hairstylist.
Rapunzel Braid: Start with a low ponytail but leave out sections from either side of your head right above your ears. Depending on how long your hair is, make several "bubbles" in your ponytail by tying it off with a hairband every 2 or 3 inches. When that's finished, take the two sections you left out of the ponytail and cross them over the base hairband as if you were about to tie a bow. Once you've crossed them in front, pull them behind the ponytail and cross them again. Continue this pattern all the way down the ponytail securing with bobby pins along the way.
Wrapped Ponytail: This is another take on an easy-breezy ponytail. Once you have your ponytail secure, take a small section of hair from one side and wrap it around the base. Pin the wrapped section down with bobby pins when you're done. The bobby pins will also help the ponytail itself stay anchored!
Curly Updo: Freeform updos turn out particularly well when there's curly hair at hand. If your hair is straight, use a curling iron to give your hair some texture and volume. Start the updo with a base bun, then take smaller sections from either side and twist, wrap and pin as you see fit - there's no right or wrong!
Happy Valentine's Day!
