Sexy, Sleek, Slicked Back Hair

Now, this look is a killer.

If you’re going out with friends, bae, or by yourself you are sure to grab everyone’s attention with this hairstyle. Slicked back hair exudes a level of confidence and classiness, the reason being that the hair is off of your face.

What’s great about the style is that it works on many hair types. You’ve just got to be bold and confident enough to pull it off so, don’t be afraid to give it a try.

All you’ll need is some hair gel and water for this style.

You want to make sure you wet the sides and top of your hair with water, once it is damp enough begin to add hair styling gel. When adding gel be sure to brush back to prevent the gel build up on top of your hair.

If you’re not a big fan of hair gel, you can also attain this look by using bobby pins, hair clips and a little texture or holding spray. Use your holding spray on your hair; it does not have to be a generous amount. Now, grab a brush and use it while blow drying your hair in an up motion to create volume.

Make sure to blow dry the sides of your hair as well and smooth them to the back of your head.

Now if your hair still isn’t smooth or straight enough you can use a mini flat iron to make certain parts of your hair a little straighter, just be sure to add heat-resistant oil to the hair to protect it from heat damage.

After smoothing your hair back, you can add decorative hair clips or bobby pins that blend into your natural hair. This will help keep the style in place all throughout the day.

If you want to wear weave for this look, we recommend the Brazilian Straight hair. This hair is super soft and looks amazing when slicked back.

There you have it; this look is sure to get someone’s heart pumping this Valentine’s Day.

Side Ponytail

This hairstyle is one of my all-time favorites, and the inspiration came from no one other than the great Beyoncé Knowles.

This fantastic singer and performer rocked her signature hair statement at the Met Gala Ball, and at the red carpet of the Tidal X:1020 Concert. You too can achieve this chic look by following these steps:

Step #1

Start off by brushing and combing your hair out; you want to make sure your curls are free of tangles and knots.

Step #2

Then apply a generous amount of hair gel around the circumference of your hair

Step #3

Now gather your hair and use a tight hair tie to secure a ponytail on the top towards the side of your head.

Step #4

Take your weave track and wrap it around the ponytail making sure that the wefts are lying flat.

Step #5

Use a thick piece of the hair and wrap it around the ponytail to hide the wefts

Step #6

Now if you want to imitate the look just as Beyoncé did, use a curling wand to curl the remaining hair that is left out in the ponytail.

Now you’re ready to slay V-day!

Messy Beach Waves

The messy bed hair look can be super adorable.

I usually know when you hear the term beach waves you think of the summertime or warm weather, but I just think about natural, breezy, free-flowing hair. As light and airy as this hairstyle may seem it can be very challenging for those of us who have super straight hair or unmanageable curly hair.

The Water Wave Extensions is the perfect weave for this look.

But I’m here to give you some tips on how to rock this awesome beach wave look for Valentine’s Day.

If your hair is naturally straight and you want to try this look with a curling iron, it’s relatively simple.

Step #1

Starting in the back separate your hair into medium sections, and use a little heat resistant spray on to the parts of your hair.

Step #2

With each section, wrap the hair around your curling iron and leave it on for about five to ten seconds. Once that part of your hair is curly, proceed with doing this step until your whole hair is finished and curled up.

Step #3

Take your fingers and lightly comb them through your hair, this will make the curls appear more light, and less tight.

Step #4

Tousle your hair around and finish off by adding a little finishing hairspray and now you have a spunky, cute beach wave look.

Beach Waves Without Heat

If your hair naturally has some waves to it, all you will need to do is add a little bit of curling moose.

Once the moose is added scrunch your hair up, and waves should start to appear.

If you want to enhance your waves a little further, try this method.

Next Braid back your hair, either in a Dutch braid, French braid or a two strand twist. You can leave it overnight or if you’re in a rush at least for 30 minutes.

Step #3

After your desired time has passed untwist or take out your braids, and your hair should now be in loose beachy waves.

This look is perfect for those of us who plan on staying at home and having a movie night with ourselves or another person. If you do plan on being by yourself, it doesn’t mean you cant look cute.

Top Knot bun with bangs

Buns are adorable and sassy, but what’s even better are that they can make any look worthy enough for Valentine’s Day.

If you don’t have bangs yourself, you can try this look with hair extensions. I will walk you through this one step by step.

Step #1

Brush your hair up into the spot where you want the bun to sit on top of your head.

Step #2

Next, you want to make sure you slick down those edges and baby hairs. You want everything to look smooth and sleek. *tip* You can use a blow dryer to dry any gel that is on your hair faster.

Step #3

Add your hair extension to your hair that is already put up into the ponytail. Once you wrap it around, make sure to take a small piece of hair in the extension and wrap it around the wefts so they will not show. Continue with turning that ponytail in too a messy or neat bun.

Step #4

Once the top knot part is done, it’s time to move on to your bangs. You will need another hair extension, and you will wrap this track in the opposite direction you did with the ponytail.

Step #5

When the weave has been wrapped around, secure with bobby pins. The hair that is left out from the track will be your bang, all you must do is decide how much of it you want to be left out for the bang, and the remainder hair you will add into that top knot bun.

Step #6

Lastly, once you have the designated hair that will be your bang, go ahead and cut, and style it into place.

There you go! A triumphant and banging top knot bun that is perfect for this Valentine’s Day.

Red Hair

It is Valentine’s day after all, right? So why not do it big this year.

Try dying your hair red, or purchasing a red lace front wig. Even If you just wanted to add some red highlights, this would be the perfect finishing touch to a remarkable look on this day.

I would suggest if you’re planning to dye your hair to do this a couple of days in advance, that way you can get it just right. Also, try scheduling an appointment with an experienced hair salon, that means they can check the health of your hair and see if it can handle the red hair dye.

If you want to dye your hair yourself make sure you follow the directions step by step on whatever route you decide to take.

Whether you use the hair coloring box or more professional products, never leave chemicals in your hair longer than you’re supposed to. This increases the risk of your hair becoming brittle and dry.

If you’re looking to try making your hair extensions red, I’m happy to say that Private Label Extensions offers platinum blonde body wave hair that will make it a breeze to dye on your own.

So, show your hair a little love this Valentine’s Day season and spice it up by adding a shade of red to your head.

Jumpsuits are becoming more popular these days. They are stylish and also comfortable to wear.

If you style this outfit correctly, you will have everyone stopping and staring at you. I know it may be scary trying to find the perfect jumpsuit to wear, mainly because your height does play a critical role.

To avoid this issue, make sure you take the time to go shopping and try on this look in person. If you happen to have a jumpsuit at home, but it is a little too plain, enhance it!

You can try adding a belt which can help define your waistline and give your body a more defining shape.
