Whether you're going on a first date, a second, a third or stepping out with someone you've been with for years, how you choose to style your hair is a key part of the prep. It helps to set the tone, and it also decides how your face is framed, which is mainly what the person in front of you will be gazing at all night.
So, how do you get great date night hair?
1/ Keep it understated
Less is generally more, so go for a style that is pulled together, but not overdone. Unless you're taking your date to a red carpet shindig, chances are you'll feel a lot more comfortable with a textured side sweep or pushed back waves than a slick Cary Grant inspired look... unless that's your trademark look of course!
2/ Be yourself
If you don't tend to do much with your hair, 30 minutes before a date is not the time to begin experimenting with new styles. Stick to what you know, just polish it up a bit better than you usually would. This means taming any particularly unruly curls, smoothing down any tufts, and making sure a "bed head" style looks totally deliberate, as opposed to a scruffy accident.
3/ Go easy on the product
Do you know what no one likes running their hands through? A slick of hair product. It's just not sexy. So, make sure you only apply as much as you need, starting with a dime-sized amount and adding more as necessary. With flexible hold products like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty, you only need the bare minimum to hold your strands in place.
