Love Me ‘Do: 15 Hopelessly Romantic Hairdos for Valentine’s Day

It’s a cruel fact that Valentine’s Day—the holiday that calls most for bouncy, beachy, wind-blown locks—takes place in the dead of winter when the seashore is snowy and the beanies that so heroically warm our domes simultaneously crush our follicles flat. Thankfully when the beach doesn’t have your back, there are tons of ways to tousle and tease your hair into wavy perfection. We’re grabbing lots of inspo from the bridal department here, but don’t think that means these styles are way complicated. These 15 hopelessly romantic hairstyles are flirty and largely fuss free!
