STUNNING LOOKS TO KINDLE ROMANCE ON VALENTINE’S DAY
Got a hot date and want to impress? Or a romantic evening with your loved one and want to spice things up? Or just transform yourself into a Valentine’s vixen. Everyone wants to make that special effort to impress on these occasions but how do you achieve the ultimate romantic style. Romantic hair is all about “effortless movement and healthy shine”, says Gareth Vance, Senior Creative Director at Sassoon Salon, Leeds. And with this in mind Gareth has created some ultimate romantic styles especially for Valentine Day. BRAID
Textured plaits nonchalantly draped over one shoulder are chic, cool and confident. Gareth says, ‘keep the braid loose and textured so it looks a little more undone and messy. Dry your hair off and spray it with dry shampoo or a texturising spray to give it that matte feel, then create your braid. Avoid brushing your hair if you can so you keep that matte texture.’ This style is super versatile; wear the look clean or deconstructed. Keep it loose and low and it will ooze youthful insouciance.
This tousled look is full of romantic texture. The way to wear cascading waves this season is to punctuate them
with a bold centre parting. Gareth says, “Use a large barrel curling iron and alternate the size of each section for a more natural result. Be sure to curl the front sections away from your face to create a more flattering frame. Don’t be too rigid with the sectioning – you’ll achieve a natural and gorgeously un-done wave, perfect for your first date.”
Never under estimate the pulling power of soft, face framing waves. The Polished Wave is guaranteed to turn heads. This romantic style is created by wrapping small sections of hair around a medium barrel tong, securing each curl with a flat clip in a finger wave pattern. Gareth says “try flipping your parting over to the side for instant grown-up glamour.”
And if you are feeling a little apprehension about creating any of these styles then Sasson’s Blow and Style Menu may be just the option.
Choose from Signature Sassoon, straight and sleek, to Va Va Volume and the relaxed and easy elegance of the Dishevelled. If you opt for the Beach, the result will be a head of natural tousled waves; if you prefer a more defined curl try the Curly Wave. The Sassoon Style Menu offers head-turning styling with a selection of braids, waves and ponies. The undone fishtail Braid adds a touch of youthful insouciance; the polished gloss of the Sleek Pony speaks executive chic and the Dressed Wave is perfect finishing detail for your special date.
