Whether it’s your first date with a special new man or a romantic date night with your long time beau, one thing is always certain - you want to look and feel amazing.
A large part of ensuring this essential piece to the date night puzzle is getting your hair on point (along with choosing the perfect outfit, but that’s a whole other story).
Hairstyles that require minimal attention are ideal for any kind of date, which means maintenance is everything. No one enjoys running to the bathroom every 20 minutes to check that their hair is still in fine form, right? You want an effortless style that is easy to achieve and even easier to maintain throughout the night - so you can stay worry-free and pay attention to the important things.
To help take the guesswork out of your next date night do, we’ve rounded up three easy to maintain hairstyles that will always win you the kick of confidence you’re looking for.
Long Loose Waves
They’re a staple on the Victoria Secret runway for a reason. Long loose waves ooze a sexy goddess vibe that is easier to maintain than you’d think.
To achieve these beautiful waves you will need:
After washing your hair, spray your Milkshake Lifestyle Thermo-Protector Spray into towel-dried hair. Hold approximately 20-30 cm away from your hair and distribute the product evenly from roots to ends. Proceed with blow drying. The Thermo-Protector Spray will shield your hair from high heat, working to prevent split ends and add shine.
Once your hair is dry, part your hair into manageable sections in preparation for curling. Working through the sections, take your curling iron and curl small pieces at a time, alternating between curls that fall away from your face and towards, for a more natural style.
After curling, softly brush out the curls with a wide tooth comb, and apply the Kevin Murphy Bedroom.Hair. This is a light, flexible hairspray that adds shine and hold for effortless Victoria Secret curls that you won’t need to worry about once you leave your house.
Complete the style with some glowing gold makeup for the ultimate sexy goddess look, that will leave you feeling like the strong beautiful woman you are.
The low ponytail is about as simple as it gets when it comes to hairstyles, but this doesn’t mean it's not a great option for date night. The effortless style projects an alluring model-off duty vibe, that is largely underrated in our opinion. What’s even better, the ponytail can easily be switched up between sleek and polished to relaxed and wispy.
To achieve the simple low pony you will need:
After washing and drying your hair, take your hair straightener and style as preferred. For a more sleek polished look, simply straighten your hair; for a more relaxed wispy look, give your hair some curl.
Once you have the style you want, part your hair down the middle; gather into a low ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Pull your hair as tight or as loosely as you wish, depending on the look you’re after.
If opting for the sleek option, use a teasing brush to really pull back your hair and finish off with some Evo Helmut Extra Strong Lacquer to keep it in place. Continue to pull back with the teaser brush and apply the hairspray until you have your desired style.
If opting for the wispy looser option, apply some Evo Salty Dog Salt Spray to the tail of your pony for some extra texture; leave some strands of your hair out at the front to frame your face; and even pull gently around the hair tie for a more undone look. Finish with an all round spray of the Helmut Extra Hold hairspray and you’re good to go!
A high bun is a high fashion hairstyle with pretty much zero maintenance. You’ll feel elegant and powerful at the same time; and with all your hair up and secured in place, there is literally nothing to worry about.
To achieve this high fashion, high bun you will need:
Wash and dry your hair as usual; if your hair is prone to frizz, you may need to run a straightener through it.
When it comes to styling buns, everyone does it differently - but the key on date night is to keep it high and out of your face.
Depending on your hair length you may need to secure layers with extra hair spray and several bobby pins. If your hair is long enough you can even use a hair donut to achieve a fuller bun.
Once you have the high bun that works best for you, apply an even spray of the Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray and you won’t need to look in the mirror for the rest of the night.
With all your hair out of your face, you can have more fun accessorising with statement jewellery pieces and make up looks. Style with some big earrings or a choker necklace, complete with a bold lip.
No matter which of these three hairstyles you choose for your next date night, one thing is certain - you will look and feel amazing.
