Give your man something soft and silky to run his fingers through on your special day.
Men have this thing about hair and wanting to touch it. This could be because they often don’t have much of their own!
On the other hand, you might have issues with fingers running through your hair, especially if you’re transitioning or have hair that gets frizzy easily. This Valentine’s Day, though, maybe you could make an exception – just this once – and give your man something soft and silky to run his fingers through!
Chances are good you’ll be glad you did!
Long and Loose
No matter what kind of curls you have, you can feel confident wearing your hair down and out! For wavies, this is easy, but curlies and kinkies might be a little more hesitant. You girls don’t have to be!
Experiment with some loose curly hairstyles before the big day and see which ones make you feel more comfortable. For instance, you curly-kinkies and kinkies might like doing twists or bantu knots in your hair. As soon as you take the twists or knots out, you’ll have an organized set of locks – which will look great!
They’ll look even better, though, if you let your man run his fingers through them and loosen them a little. He’ll be helping you finish off your hairstyle, and you’ll still look fantastic!
To give some pizzazz to an otherwise ordinary curly hairstyle, try out different parts. You can try a center part, a slight off-center part, or a side part. If you have wavy hair that’s somewhat straight at the roots, you can even begin your part line at the end of your eyebrows on one side, and then pull the hair around the front of your forehead for a very trendy look!
The Half Updo
This hairstyle is a great choice for curlies who want to wear their hair down, but who maybe battle with puffiness and don’t have time to do something like a twist-out to tame it. Comb through some leave-in conditioner, and then comb just the top part of your hair back and secure with a clip. If you’re going for a more “traditional” half-updo, clip your hair near your crown. For a softer look, clip it near the nape of your neck.
Some good choices for leave-in conditioners include Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In Conditioner for kinkies, and Aubrey Organics Sea Buckthorn Leave-In Conditioner (which comes in a spray bottle) for curlies and wavies who may need something lighter.
Ponytails are probably one of the most versatile hairstyles out there. You sport a pony at the gym, while swimming, playing with the kids at the park or when just lounging around. You may also whip your hair into a ponytail when you’re having a bad hair day. But did you know that ponytails can be incredibly sexy? Obviously they’ll leave hair down for your man to caress, but the great thing about ponytails is that you won’t have to worry about the rest of your hair frizzing out.
For some sexy ponytail styles, try pulling your ponytail way up high, slightly higher than you crown if you have long hair. You could also sport a low-lying side ponytail and pull some wisps of curls out around your hairline, or double up and go for two low-lying side ponytails.
