Valentine's Day is fast approaching - it's tomorrow! - so now is the perfect time to figure out what you're going to do with your hair, whether you have a date or a Galentine's celebration planned. Traditionally, this holiday demands soft textures, waves and/or a lot of feminine braids, updos and the like.

If you aren't too sure which kind of romantic hairstyle is for you, the gallery above is full of pretty, chic updos that will work with all kinds of different looks. You're bound to be inspired by at least one of these cute hairstyles!

Making waves...

A lot of romantic hairstyles are so-called because of their relaxed, tousled texture. Before you begin styling your romantic updo of choice, you need to create some loose waves that will not only give your look a romantic feel, but also make achieving an updo a lot easier. Physics dictates that wavy hair has more grip than super sleek locks!

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray

Step one - After washing and conditioning your hair, towel-dry gently. Then, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray generously throughout your hair. Finger-comb and scrunch to ensure even coverage from roots to ends.

Step two - Take a half-inch section of hair or slightly bigger and twist it. Blow-dry the twist completely. Separate it with your fingers to reveal a couple of loose, tousled waves.

Step three - Repeat step two until all of your hair is full of relaxed waves. Then, spray again and scrunch with your hands for added hold. If your hair is particularly fine or just prone to losing its shape, mist your waves with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to make sure they stay put!

After that, the hairstyle world is your oyster. Which look will you go for?
