For those of you who see today more as a Friday than a Valentine's Day, figuring out an interesting night out hairstyle might be a bigger priority than finding the perfect romantic updo or Galentine's look. So, if you're planning a night out this weekend, we have five great loose hairstyles for your consideration!

Unlike intricate updos, these styles take hardly any time at all to achieve and are perfect for a party.

Brushed-back hair

One of the more wearable takes on the wet-look trend, brushed-back hair throws your face into the limelight, giving you a great excuse to try some intense smoky eyes or graphic eyeliner.

Get the look: Starting with dry hair, use your fingers to work a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through your hair. Add more gum as you go and flatten the sides with the palms of your hands. For added lift, massage the roots on the top and back of your head before gently smoothing hair over with a comb.

Retro volume

Loose locks with a slight bouffant effect is another great style for anyone on a tight schedule. It's easy to do and works beautifully with heavy Twiggy-style eyeliner.

Get the look: Blow-dry hair with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out Heatspray, drying the last 10% with your head flipped upside down. Use a tail comb to define a vague center part and then spray Advaced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray on the roots. Massage the top and crown of your head to encourage lift and then smooth hair over with your hands. Secure the sides with bobby pins if necessary, otherwise tuck the front sections of hair behind your ears and you're good to go!

Loose Waves

If you're ready for spring already, and who isn't, you might want to try some floral hair accessories. Such adornments are especially flattering with relaxed wavy hair and create a truly feminine look.

Get the look: On damp or dry hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly through out. Take a half-inch section of hair and twist it. Blow-dry the twisted section completely and finger-comb to break it into loose waves. Repeat on the rest of your hair, respray and scrunch with your hands.

Braided headband

If you don't have a real headband, use your own hair to create one! This is a good way to add extra detail to a straight hairstyle or to make the most of natural curls! You can even use a rope braid technique for a more original look.

Get the look: Take a small section of hair - half an inch or slightly bigger - from behind your ear and braid it. Secure with an invisible hair elastic and do the same on the other side. Take both braids and wrap them over the top of your head to create an Alice band effect. Secure with bobby pins, tucking the ends underneath the opposite braids. Mist with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray to finish.

No-shock wet look hair

If you're in the mood to make a serious style statement, try a glamorous wet-look hairstyle like L'Oréal Paris spokesmodel Doutzen Kroes. Subtle rather than ultra-slick, this particular take on wet-look hair is one that really can work for people who aren't supermodels by trade but can rock a red lip when the occasion arises.

Get the look: Take a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum and work it through the top layers of your hair, sweeping down towards the ends. Add more gum as you go and comb through to smooth hair down. Use your hands to muss the style by running them back through your hair.
