Half-Up Heart Loop

Valentine's Day is right around the corner! Whether you're spending time with the girls or have a date with your sweetheart, this easy heart hairstyle is a great one to try for your night out.

 

Step 1: Curl the hair with the Beachwaver PRO. Once all of the curls cool, spray the On Set Styling Brush with a flexible hairspray and brush through the curls for soft, loose waves.
Step 2: Pull two small sections of hair from each side of the head and secure them into a ponytail in the back of the head.
Step 3: Take another two sections of hair directly below the first sections and pull them to the back of your head. Create a loop on either side by weaving them over and under the first sections.
Step 4: Secure the remaining hair from both sections with an elastic to complete the heart shape.
 

 

Criss-Cross Braids

Step 1: Curl 1" sections of hair with the Beachwaver PRO.
Step 2: Create two small, three strand braids on either side of the head behind the ear. Secure each with a clear elastic.
Step 3: Criss cross the braids in the back of the head and secure with a bobby pin behind the opposite ear.
Step 4: Add a fun accessory to dress up the look. Be creative! We turned one of our favorite necklaces into a headband by clasping it at the top of the head so that the jewels framed the hair beautifully.

 
 

Faux Bob

Step 1: Curl smaller sections of hair with the Beachwaver PRO to get gorgeous texture. To use the PRO: Select L (left) or R (right) based on the side you are curling, and clamp the hair leaving a bit of the ends out. Press the "GO" button to start the rotation. Release "GO" to stop the rotation. Hold for 3-4 seconds, open the clamp to release straight down.
Step 2: Use the Wrap Up to create a faux bob. To use the Wrap Up: open it, slide the hair through, pinch it closed, wrap it under and bend it in so that your hair is in a faux bob.
Step 3: Secure into place with bobby pins. 
Step 4: Pull out a few pieces of hair around the face to add piecey texture.
