February is the month of love, so switch it up a bit by adding some romance to your hairdo this month. From hair tints to romantic accessories and accents, there are plenty of ways to spruce up your hair this month to give off a vibe of romance. Here are three ideas to get you started.
Nothing says romance like flowers in your hair. Whether you’re going to a tropical island or just out for a night on the town, putting a flower or two in your hair is sure to get attention and take your do from drab to magical. The trick with getting flowers to work is that you don’t want to go overboard. Try one or two blossoms in a bun or tucked behind your ear. For an avant-garde take on this old classic, consider using green leaves or twigs for a minimalist, modern look.
Make It Messy
Nothing says sexy like wild, messy hair. Of course there’s a difference between having messy hair and looking like a mess. Instead of going all out and frizzing your hair up, look at ways to add a little deconstruction to your standard hairdos. One simple way to get this look is to do a bun and tease it until it’s nice and distressed. Wild bangs can also be a great way to pull off messy without overdoing it.
When it comes to sexy hair, look to vintage pinups for inspiration. A great trick is loose curls held up with pins. It’s a style that’s structured and very put together, but that still looks a little wild and alluring. If you can’t do curls, then consider flat straight bangs with long straight hair for that classic come-hither look. Find a pinup girl that looks like she has hair similar to yours and try out that look. Since not all styles work with all kinds of hair, it might take you a couple of tries to find a look that you love and that works with your hair. Don’t give up and experiment.
