So you've been asked out on a date by the man of your dreams; not only are you puzzled about what to wear but also can't figure out how to style your hair! Relax, girlfriend! We've got some easy and super-romantic date night hairstyles that you can create at home. Whether you have short hair or long locks, these DIY hairstyles will have you looking drop-dead gorgeous in minutes:
1. Styled Pixie
Flat iron your bangs and create a side sweep for a softer look (as shown in the image above) or work in a small amount of hair wax or pomade to style your face-framing hair pieces and create a striking hairstyle. You can also go for a sleek pixie by applying a dab of styling gel on your hair and back brushing your tresses to create a sexy, polished look for a date!
2. Wavy Bob
Bob hairstyles are in and there are many ways to style your bob for a date night! However, if you don't wish to wear your hair sleek and straight and are looking for an on trend hairstyle that shows the fun side of your personality, go for a wavy bob.
Creating a wavy bob is easier than it seems. Mist your hair with a good quality heat protectant hairspray before coiling individual hair sections on a medium-barreled curling iron. Spritz some tousle waves hairspray on your hair and let it slide off the iron.
When you're done curling all the sections, just run your fingers through your mane and gently scrunch your hair to break up the loose curls. Finish with a generous spritz of fine control hairspray to make your gorgeous wavy bob hairstyle stay put throughout the evening!
Wear your wavy bob loose or pin it up on one side using a cute barrette clip!
3. Romantic Half-Up (With/Without a Quiff)
This is literally the easiest and the most feminine hairstyle for a date night! The best thing is, you can wear a half-up with a quiff to make a round or a square face look slightly elongated. You can wear a half-up hairstyle with or without bangs too!
Simple half-up hairstyle
To create a simple half-up, spritz some strand-smoother serum spray on your strands to make your hair smooth and shiny. Comb your hair thoroughly to detangle any knots. Pin up the face-framing sections of your hair at the back of your head using bobby pins. You can create loose waves or even curl the ends of your hair with a large-barreled curling iron to create a super romantic hairstyle in minutes!
Romantic half-up with a quiff
To make a half-up hairstyle with a quiff, spritz some high lift creation hairspray on the roots along your hairline. This will instantly boost your hair and make it look voluminous. Section off half an inch of face-framing hair; gently tease the section right behind it by back brushing your strands. Spritz some bold control hairspray on the teased section to make it stay put.
Even out the smooth face-framing hair pieces over the teased section and secure it with a couple of bobby pins around the crown. Pin up the rest of your front hair at the back of your head or merge it with the quiff to create a chic and romantic date night hairstyle!
4. Textured Waves (Runway) Blowout
Nothing says glamorous like a textured waves blowout! This sexy and full-bodied date night hairstyle is guaranteed to take your special someone's breath away!
You don't need to book an appointment at the salon to get a gorgeous blowout. Just spritz some heat primer on your damp hair and blow dry it till it's about 75% dry. Comb your hair to detangle knots. Next, spritz some heat protectant hairspray on your hair and complete your blowout using a round brush to curl the ends of your hair.
