Half the fun of Valentine’s Day is the beauty routine that comes with the occasion. While 90% of the time we’re totally game for lounging in sweatpants and second-day hair, getting all gussied up on February 14 really makes our hearts flutter. No matter what your plan might be for the so-called “day of love,” we’ve got some easy hair styles that will be sure to cause some selfie-worthy moments. Whether crown braids for dinner and a movie or a polished bun for a concert date, these eight chic styles will definitely do when it comes to your ‘do for V-day.

Night in Watching Netflix Date-Night Hair


1. Bohemian Festival Knot Braid: A Netflix sesh is pretty perfect for any stage of a relationship. Spending the night in and bingeing on takeout and your fave show actually can be a truly romantic way to spend Valentine’s Day together. Spice up your typical stay-at-home style with a chic (but simple!) knotted braid. Spritz a bit of a volumizing spray through your locks for some added texture that’ll really make a statement.

Romantic Home-Cooked Meal Date-Night Hair


2. Double Fishtail: If you’ve got a low-key but special evening in mind, like making a home-cooked dinner for two together, opt for a more practical look that’s still a bit fun. This style will keep tresses out of the way while you prep your meal, thanks to a pretty clip. While you can use just about any braid to make this ‘do your own, we’re especially partial to the slight edge of this fab fishtail duo. (via Missy Sue)

Dinner and a Movie Date-Night Hair


3. Messy Braided Crown: Add a bit of royal flair to your February 14 ensemble with this braided crown, a style that’s especially well-suited for those rocking shorter locks. Start off by adding a bit of wave to your hair using your fave method, then simply braid away! (via The Wonder Forest)

Ice Skating Date-Night Hair


4. Criss-Cross Ponytail: Add a little intrigue to your everyday ponytail. The criss-cross style adds a bit of texture to your ‘do, making it a chic and practical option for a slightly more active date choice. While it might look complicated, even a hair newbie will be able to nail this look. (via A Beautiful Mess)

Brunch Date Hair


5. Half Updo: If you’re lucky enough to have the day off from work, we recommend taking the time to sleep in and follow up Valentine’s Day with a fun brunch. Instead of using up time doing your hair when you could be sleeping, try out this five-minute ‘do. The stunning braids might look like they took a long routine to accomplish, but they can actually be done in a snap. Who knew beauty sleep could look so good? (via Twist Me Pretty)

Hair for a Concert Date


6. Upside-Down Braided Bun: Once you give this look a try, you’ll happily opt for it any day of the year. But if you’re spending the day of love rocking out at a concert, we can think of no better way to wear your hair than this gorgeous braided bun. The style is the perfect combo of romantic and edgy, a pair that’s well suited to any concert ensemble. (via Barefoot Blonde)

Fancy Dinner Date Hair


7. Simple Chignon: Your fave LBD and fancy heels are great, but the outfit isn’t truly complete until those tresses are tamed. For such a sophisticated style, this chignon bun is surprisingly simple to complete on your own. Grab a few bobbie pins, a hair tie and your fave hair spray to achieve these luxe locks. (via LuLu*s)

Wine Tasting Night Out (or in) Date Hair


8. Celtic Knot: Whether you’re out with your best pals or classing it up with your S.O., there’s no wrong way to wine taste the night away. Add some intrigue to your hair with a Celtic knot for an unexpected but chic style. The best part? This style can be rocked for locks of any length, meaning it will look great with your new trendy swag cut. (via Divine Caroline)
