Get the Look: 2 Easy Date Night Hair Styles

Let’s be honest, finding the perfect hair style for date night (or GNO!)—one that’s just the right balance between chic and casual—isn’t always easy. The ideal style should not only be cute, but also quick—something you can achieve between the office and your 7:00 dinner rez.

These two style ideas for a night on the town are just that. Simple and elegant, each only require one accessory to pull off, and you can master them both in five minutes. Here’s how!

1. Curl your hair with the Beachwaver S1, securing the clamp near the ends of your hair for polished, glam waves.

2. On one side of your head, take two one-inch sections, and twist them both away from your face, then cross the section farthest from your face over the front section. Add hair from the top of your head to one of the strands. Twist, and cross the sections. Continue until you reach the ends, then clip out of the way. 

3. Repeat on the other side, then secure both rope braids together in the back with a clear elastic.

4. Finish by adding a Beachwaver® Velvet Barrette Bow!

How-To: Sweetheart Bun

Choosing the perfect Valentine’s Day style is no easy task! You want it to be cute AND practical (and it wouldn’t hurt if it looked good enough to ‘gram!). We have just the thing. This festive, heart-shaped bun is sure to turn heads, and with our Wrap Up, you can recreate this look in just five minutes! Check out the step-by-step below to learn how.

1. Start by gathering hair into a ponytail and securing with an elastic. Open a Wrap Up, and mold it into a V shape.

2. Pull the pony through the Wrap Up, pinch it closed and slide it to the ends of your hair. Then roll the hair up until you reach the top of the pony.

3. Using one hand to hold the Wrap Up in place, shape the bottom of the Wrap Up into a point (the bottom of the heart) with your other hand.

4. Secure the Wrap Up to your head with long bobby pins—one on the bottom and two on each side.

5. Next, fold the sides of the Wrap Up inward to create the top of the heart. Slide the hair up over the side of the Wrap Up to conceal.

6. Use one hand to hold the heart shape in place while you pin the Wrap Up to secure.

7. Use a duck bill clip to help maintain the shape as you mist with hairspray for hold, and to smooth flyaways.

Voilà! The perfect, Insta-worthy Valentine's Day style!
