When you're going out on a date, the last thing you need to worry about is how your hair looks. This may be easier said than done but, with a little preparation, you'll end up with a style that looks great and makes you feel confident enough to make a good impression on your potential love interest.

Keep it simple

As with most things, less is more when it comes to styling your hair for a date. You want to maintain a certain amount of control without looking try-hard. Aim for a style that appears laid back, but still gives the impression that you made some kind of effort to look good.


Disheveled hair is a great option as long as you keep it contained. For this, you'll need a flexible product like L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum that won't set hard or leave any residue.

Apply a small amount, then add more as needed, working it through the top then down the sides. Ruffle your hair and twist small pieces on top to add texture, then shape with your hands to finish.

Swept back

Similarly, a swept-back or subtly side-parted style will give you the same kind of understated look. For this, you'll need more definition than with a tousled style.

Try a strong-hold, matte product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty to keep your hair smooth and in place, without looking super slick and untouchable.
