Well it’s almost time for your Valentine’s date! If you are wondering about how to do your hair, look no further! BeautySouthAfrica is here to supply you with a bit of inspiration from the movie stars. Here are our favourite romantic celebrity hairdo’s.
We all know that the most romantic hairstyles always feature soft, feminine curls of hair, either escaping endearingly from an updo, or falling about our shoulders. Amanda Seyfried’s long glossy curls look stylish and utterly romantic, as do Jennifer Lopez’s soft, big curls, as seen at the Golden Globes this year. And she doesn’t have the same scary look in her eye that Ms Seyfried does. Very unromantic and unValentiney. Copy the hairstyle by all means, but keep the look in your eye as soft and romantic as your curls.
Half up, half down styles can make anyone look like a princess. We love how Diane Kruger has added a twist by making a pin curl. If that’s not your thing, why not give Dianna Agron’s textured half do a try? Just add a sparkly clip and you’re good to go (somewhere romantic).
Everything Taylor Swift does is romantic (Exhibit A, every song she has ever written) but we particularly love this softly tousled bun worn low in the nape of her neck. See how the earrings and the two chin-length curls balance the look perfectly? Stunning.
Jessica Alba is so on-trend with this look: plaits AND the nape of the neck are both huge for 2013. And despite the plaits this look is ultra-grown-up and very sophisticated.
Hayden Panettiere shows that short hair can look just as romantic and feminine as any long waves with this twisty short hair do.
Tips for romantic hairstyles
• This is one time you don’t want to look too polished or groomed. Slightly tousled hair invites touch.
• Go from sleek to wavy: get out that curling iron or curlers and turn your straight hair into soft waves. Give it a LIGHT spray of hairspray to fix the curls into place. But the key is LIGHT – you want your chosen one to touch that hair at some time!
• This is a good time to accessorise – sparkles, flowers, shiny, whatever works for you.
