Valentine’s Day Hairstyles to Keep You Cute in Quarantine

Published on: 02/11/2021 12:42 pm

A socially distant Valentine’s Day may sound like a letdown, but just because you can’t hit the town with your sweetie, doesn’t mean you can’t look the part. Same goes for when you’re planning a zoom-giggle with your Galentines gaggle or treating yourself to a box of chocolates after a long bath.

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate, remember this is a day of love, something we all could use a little more of right now. Don’t let this be just another ‘X’ on the calendar. We may have to make our own fun, but with cute Valentine’s hair in tow you can mark the day in style.

There’s nothing like a holiday hairstyle to help you celebrate this season of love, so we’ve rounded up nine of our favorite Valentine’s Day hairdos to set your heart on fire.

Valentine’s Day Braided extension

Easy valentine hairstyles can be just as breathtaking as the more intricate ones. This sleek ponytail turned robust braid is a great example. If you weren’t blessed with thick locks, a braided hair extension is your new best friend. You can get a pre-braided piece to quickly clip in, or you can do the twisting yourself. Be sure to wet your hair up top and use a tiny bit of product to tame flyaways.

Valentine’s Day Fringe Ponytail

Want to be a little freer with your pony? Pull out some fringe in the front and around your ears. You can use a curling wand to give them a bit of a bend on the ends, or let them do their own thing. This style works great if you haven’t washed your hair in a day or two, but be sure to give your strands a spritz of dry shampoo to add a bit of volume.

Valentine’s Day Space Buns

Space buns are a year-round way to showcase your inner adorable. Start by parting your hair down the middle in equal sections. Next, gather one side into a ponytail and use a rubber band to secure it, followed by the other. Take the tail end and wrap around in a circle then secure it all with another hair tie. You can give your Valentine’s hair a boost of romance by adding a few strands of baby’s breath or securing it all with pearl or glitter crusted hair bands.
