Get your hair from office-appropriate to date-ready in less time than it takes.
1. Slicked back
Wet down the top of your hair, brush it back, and then work a styling gel through it until it’s fully coated
2. Barely-there braid
A low braid, tied off with some ribbon or string, is as pretty as it is effortless.
3. Fuzzy bun
If you’ve been rocking a topknot all day, just pull-out a few face-framing pieces before you end the night with a romantic date.
4. Loose curls
It’s one of the rules of curls to never brush through them, but Chanel Iman is making a case for looser, fluffier curls.
5. Volume all over
Like something out of a Victorian romance novel, actress Haley Bennett’s bouncy curls are as soft and flirty as they come.
6. Messy waves
Using a tapered curling iron, create loose bends by curling them in opposite directions. This makes the waves look purposefully tousled.
7. Top it off
Nothing elevates a basic hairstyle to something more romantic like a sparkly headband, as seen here on Emily Blunt.
8. Sleek waves
These shiny waves on Adriana Lima reference the Old Hollywood type but are a lot less rigid and time-consuming.
9. Half-up with a bow
A half-up style can be worn anytime, anywhere—but topped off with a silky ribbon and a matte red lipstick, the style becomes hopelessly romantic.
