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.

Add a Flower

If you’re like me you are not a huge fan of getting flowers for Valentine’s Day because—let's face it—that is completely cliché! Instead of asking for flowers, get your own and wear one in your hair. Pink and red flowers are the easiest things to find right now so take advantage of the accessibility and use a flower to complete your outfit for the evening.

Half Up Half Down

This is an easy look that goes great with curls and also shows off your face. Similar to an up do you can make it as messy or as smooth as you would like it. For a more romantic look, go for the messier option as it will soften your face and give you a flirtier look.

Low Bun or Ponytail Paired with a Scarf

Buns and ponytails are a common work place hairstyle, but a low bun or side ponytail is your key to romance. Add a scarf that acts as a headband with your outfit and you will have a classic look that screams “Chic!” If you’re feeling extremely into the Valentine’s Day spirit, find a scarf with hearts. Like pink and red flowers, they are no hard to find this time of year.
