5 Simply Sexy Hairstyles
Amp up your Valentine’s Day allure with these quick and easy ‘dos.
Whether you’re walking the red carpet like Anna Paquin with her True Blood co-star and fiancé Stephen Moyer or going out to a romantic Valentine’s dinner with your honey, you want to look good from head-to toe. You’ve already got a fierce little black dress and a pair of sexy stilettos picked out; now all you need is an easy ‘do to complete your look. Here are five easy-to-do styles that are guaranteed to amp up your sexiness.
Pump Up the Volume
Sleek, loose, pin-straight hair for after-five is so last season. Now bigger is better. Volume is in, so follow Kyra Sedgwick‘s lead and opt for a wild full mane for cocktail parties and more. To get this look, celebrity stylist Francky L’Official says, “Part your hair down the middle and apply a texturizing spray along the roots on different parts of your head. Blow-dry your hair upside-down until it is 60 percent dry. Then, stand up and use your fingers to create texture and volume through the length of your hair.” To get more oomph, try is Jonathan Product Create Root Volume Brushable Lifting Spray ($28, beauty.com).
Go From Day to Night
When you don’t have time to go home and change your clothes and your ‘do, L’Official suggests starting the day with a French twist. One Tree Hill’s Sophia Bush looks elegant, but it’s an easy style to achieve at home. Simply pull your hair back as if you were making a ponytail, and twist it from the bottom, tucking the end into the twist as you go. Then secure the twist with bobby pins and you have a sophisticated look in no time flat. To secure your French twist, pick up a package of Scunci Classic Pins ($1.29, walgreens.com). Because they come in blonde, brown and black they’ll blend in with your hair color and are the perfect “secret weapon” to keep any style secure.
