The season of love is here and while many of us worry about getting our significant other a gift that will show them how much they mean to us, others worry about much more important things—like how they will look on Valentine’s Day.

I will be the first to admit that I use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to buy a new outfit, but just as important as the outfit is how you will wear those curls. Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to bring out your romantic side and show off a romantic hairstyle and some accessories.

Long and Loose Waves Wavies, here is your chance to shine! If you have longer waves it can be hard to get all of your hair to corporate for an updo, so just work with what you have and keep your hair down. If you feel like you that is too boring because you wear your hair down frequently, consider changing up your part or adding an accessory to complete your look. Which leads me to the third idea . . .

Messy Updo If you can get away with an updo, this is the perfect night to go for it! However, prim and proper is not the way to go. Let some curls hang loose and don’t worry about perfecting the look. Loose curls will help frame your face and also give you a softer look.

I like the idea of a flower but I fail to see how that is really a hairstyle rather than adding an accessory. Along with the other readers I have found many of these articles misleading or irrelevant to naturally curly hair. Tyra Banks is featured but her definition of natural is not wearing a weave. I think there is definitely a need for the moderators of these articles to revisit the purpose and the vision of the site, perhaps it is changed and therefore you market to a different target audience.
I agree with you sisters about this piece. Seeing this kind of irony after being drawn in by an interesting headline is one reason why I stopped reading all of the main fashion magazines. I really agree with the sister who commented about the message saying that kinky curly hair isn't romantic. Who's editing this site anyway? Obviously not someone with tightly curled hair. I may need to revisit subscribing to this site if it's going to continue to give us wack pieces like this!
Wow! What a fail! None of these models represents darker skinned kinky curly haired women! So the message is that if your hair is kinky curly then it's not romantic? I have type 3C hair and was excited to receive the email with the headline promising romantic hairstyles for the day for lovers. But what a disappointment to know that you weren't talking to women like me at all but to women who have "wavy" hair. If you are going to represent "naturally curly" hair then please include all of us with "curly" hair and not just those women with straight or slightly wavy hair. You have an opportunity to build the confidence and self-esteem of women who have not alway been embraced for their textured hair but this post just perpetuates the belief that one must be lighter skinned with wavy hair to be considered beautiful or "romantic." Shame on you Naturally Curly!
I have to say this maybe a good article for a lot of people but what about the crazy curlies I have 4b hair. What am I supposed to do, for sexy v-day hair?
