Whether you’re spending Valentine’s with your other half or with your closest friends and a bottle of wine, we’ve got you covered with the best beauty looks for you to try. If you’re looking for an effortless look that screams out romance, look no further, as these looks from Pinterest can be easily recreated to wear this Valentine’s Day.
1. The messy up-do
Take some inspiration from Alexa Chung and recreate this messy up do. Simply tie your hair up in a ponytail, then play around until you reach a messy bun. You can pull out your fringe or extra strands of hair to achieve the ‘effortless’ look and then finish with some dry shampoo such as this Co Lab one from ASOS that specifically will provide you with that va va voom. This look can go from the day to evening by adding a red lip and darkening the eyes.
2. Half up, half down
A half up and down with some curls is a perfect flirty combo! An easy look to achieve by using tongs to create the perfect curls. Check out the electrical section on LookFantastic where you can find some great deals on tongs, such as this pair by babyliss, and to top it off you can save with UNiDAYS!
3. Loose waves
Effortless loose waves are easy and quick to achieve and a perfect way to frame your face. If you are not too enthusiastic when it comes to spending ages on your hair, this look can be easily achieved by sleeping in loose plaits. You will look ready for the evening without even making the effort.
A dutch braid is a flirty and fun look that you can easily play around with and make it your own style. For example, you can switch it up by choosing to do a side braid or braid only your fringe and leave the rest wavy. Braids are the easiest way to make it look like you’ve put a lot of time and effort with your hair. Make sure to finish with setting the braid with a hairspray that has strong staying power such as this GHD product
5. The big blow out!
If you want to make a statement, make sure to make your hair big! If you’re thinking that you will never achieve a salon blow dry, try using an airstyler such as the Big Hair by babyliss that’s available from ASOS with 10% off with your UNiDAYS discount. The tool will replicate a salon-perfect blow-dry at home, perfect for a romantic evening!
6. The low bun
The sleek low bun that has Gigi Hadid vibes is all kinds of pretty. You can also switch it up by making it purposely messy by pulling out some strands of hair around your face. A look that shows sophistication and is surprisingly easy to do!
7. Sleek and straight
If you want to stick to a simple yet effective look, pick up your trusty straighteners and go to town. The classic ghd gold styler can easily help you to create an easier and quicker perfect straight salon finish. Finish with the straight and smooth spray by GHD to get a strong shine.
