Make your date catch you in the doorway with these soft, romantic hairstyles.
Christmas is one of the most romantic times of the year. Christmas lights adorn every tree, there’s ice skating and snow ball fights, and the cold gives couples a good reason to snuggle up by the fire. If you plan on having a romantic holiday date this season, you’ll need some romantic curly hair styles!
A great place to start is texture. For a romantic date, you’ll want to go for the softest curl possible. Soft curls can be easily molded into any hairstyle and are very touchable. To get this texture, try these tips for your hair type:
- Type 2 (Wavy): Use a microfiber towel to scrunch your hair instead of your hands. This will prevent frizz from accumulating, and will make your hair shinier. For ultra soft waves, stay away from gels and hair sprays. Instead, stick to thin, creamy products.
- Type 3 (Curly): Try Ouidad’s “Rake and Shake” technique. It’s easy and takes two minutes to do. Simply rub your hair product into your hands, and rake your hands through your hair with your fingers. As you run your hair through your fingers, pull your curls slightly and then shake them loose. Once your hair has dried, apply hair serum to your curls and ruffle them for a good loose curl.
- Type 4 (Kinky): Try using perm rods, or hair rods to twist your hair into a soft curl. Coat your curls in setting lotion and dry your hair with a hair dryer on low heat. Be sure to apply jojoba oil to the ends of your curls to seal in moisture and soften your ringlets.
