Love is in the hair for National Singles Day, which falls on the 23rd of September, and we have all you need to leave them wanting more. Here are three show-stopping hairstyles to try on your next date. Whether that is a first date or a mates date, these three looks will leave your date asking how they do it!
It's all about the ribbon
A big trend that we are already seeing this autumn is accessories. For the best effect with ribbon, we suggest a half up half down look with a ribbon when you have tied your hair.
Here is how to achieve it -
Step 1: Begin with clean, dry, and well-combed hair as the base for your hairstyle.
Step 2: Part your hair horizontally from temple to temple, creating two sections – top and bottom.
Step 3: Optionally tease the crown for added volume by gently backcombing the top section's roots.
Step 4: Gather the top section above the crown and secure it with a clear or hair-colored elastic band.
Step 5: Add loose curls or waves to the bottom section for an elegant touch, and set your hairstyle with a light-hold hairspray.
Step 6: Choose the perfect ribbon to suit your style and tie it where you tied your hair band.
Claw clips to bring the volume
Keeping on the accessories trend, a classic ponytail gets a modern twist with the help of a claw clip.
Here's how to achieve it:
Step 1: Start with clean, dry hair.
Step 2: Tease the crown of your head gently to create volume.
Step 3: Gather your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie.
Step 4: Take a claw clip (choose one that complements your outfit) and clip it over the base of the ponytail, allowing the clip to grip the hair and create a fuller, lifted appearance.
Step 5: To finish the look, you can wrap a small section of hair around the hair tie to conceal it, securing it with a bobby pin.
Braid them away
If you want to add a touch of boho charm to your date night look, the braided hair band is the way to go. This romantic hairstyle uses your own hair to create a unique hair accessory.
Here's how you can master it:
Step 1: Begin by parting your hair down the centre.
Step 2: Take a small section of hair from one side and start braiding it. You can choose a regular three-strand braid or a fishtail braid for a more intricate look.
Step 3: Once you've completed the braid, pull it across your head like a headband.
Step 4: Secure the end of the braid behind your opposite ear with bobby pins.
Step 5: Repeat the same steps on the other side, creating a matching braided hair band.
Step 6: To make it extra romantic, gently pull apart the braid sections to give it a soft appearance.
