14 Romantic Valentine's Day Hairstyles

#1. Romantic Curls

Imagine your locks transformed into a sea of gentle waves, each curl softly cascading down like a melody. Sounds dreamy, right? Soft, romantic curls are not just a hairstyle but an experience. They bring a sense of nostalgia, a touch of old-world glamour, and a dash of romance that’s hard to resist.

And the best part? Creating these curls is a breeze! All you need is a curling wand, some heat protectant, and a few minutes of your time. Just wrap sections of your hair around the wand, wait a few seconds, and release to reveal gorgeous, bouncy curls. A spritz of hairspray can help keep your curls in place all day long.


#2. High Ponytail with Ribbon

Let’s chat about one of my favorite cute hairstyles right now – the high ponytail with a ribbon. Picture this: your hair is swept up into a sleek, high ponytail, complemented by a charming ribbon tied into a bow. Pretty chic, right?

This hairstyle is not only trendy but also versatile, perfect for all hair types and any occasion. The ribbon adds a touch of elegance, turning an ordinary ponytail into a statement piece.

Creating this hairstyle is relatively straightforward. All you need is a hair tie, your favorite ribbon, and a few minutes. First, pull your hair into a high ponytail, secure it with the hair tie, and then wrap the ribbon around it, tying it into a neat bow. And there you have it, a high ponytail with a ribbon that’s as stylish as it is simple!


#3. Braided Crown

This hairstyle is quite literally fit for a queen, with your hair gracefully woven into a stunning braid that wraps around your head like a crown. Talk about elegance, right?

Creating this regal hairstyle is simpler than it looks. Starting with a deep side part, grab three strands to start your Dutch braid (inside-out French braid). Continue adding new hair to the braid while moving along the entire crown of your head. 

When finished, secure the crown braid and tuck in loose ends with bobby pins.


#4. Messy Bun with Heart Pins

This charming hairstyle combines a relaxed, tousled bun with playful heart-shaped hairpins.

Creating this romantic look is as easy as pie. First, gather your hair into a loose bun, allowing a few face-framing pieces to escape for that perfectly imperfect vibe. Then, grab your favorite heart pins (I love the ones with a bit of sparkle) and strategically place them into your bun. Instant charm upgrade!


#5. Half-Up Hairstyle with Floral Accessories

A half-up, half-down hairstyle with floral accessories is a cute Valentine’s Day hairstyle that combines the elegance of a half-up hairstyle with the beauty of floral accents.

Crafting this botanical beauty is a breeze. Simply gather the top half of your hair into a loose updo, letting a few loose waves dance around your face for that perfect ‘I woke up like this’ vibe. Then, get artsy with your favorite floral accessories (I’m a sucker for daisy clips!) and scatter them throughout your hair. Voila, you’re a walking masterpiece!


#6. Heart-Shaped Bun

Ready to take your hair game to the next level? The heart-shaped bun is a trendy hairstyle that’s fun, chic, and surprisingly easy to create.

To start off, you’ll need to gather your hair into a ponytail on the back of your head. The height of the ponytail will determine where your heart bun will sit, so choose a spot that you feel comfortable with. Once you’ve secured your ponytail, it’s time to shape it into a heart.

#7. Fishtail Braid

Characterized by its distinctive woven appearance, the fishtail braid involves intertwining small sections of hair to create a beautiful, intricate pattern reminiscent of a fishtail. This style can be worn casually for a relaxed, beachy vibe or dressed up for more formal occasions. 

Fishtail braids are versatile and can be incorporated into other styles, such as side braids, ponytails, or updos.


#8. Side-Swept Chignon

If you’re aiming for timeless elegance this Valentine’s Day, a side-swept chignon is the hairstyle for you. This refined style is simply perfect for an evening of romance and sophistication.

If you’re wondering what it means, “chignon” simply refers to a bun that’s placed at the nape of your neck. Side-swept means this elegant bun is slightly off to one side, giving your look a chic and asymmetrical vibe. 


#9. Bubble Ponytail

The bubble ponytail is a fun, chic twist to your classic ponytail. This trendy hairstyle involves creating multiple “bubbles” along the length of your ponytail by tying hair elastics at regular intervals and then gently tugging at the hair in between to form a rounded “bubble” effect. 

This chic and playful style adds volume and bounce to your hair, making it the perfect choice for a Valentine’s Day. 


#10. Twisted Heart Hairstyle

The twisted heart hairstyle is a charming and romantic look that combines the classic heart shape with a twist for added elegance. In this style, two sections of hair are twisted or braided individually, creating a textured and dimensional effect.

These twisted sections are then brought together at the back to form a heart shape, secured with bobby pins or a hair tie.


#11. Retro Waves

Retro waves epitomize timeless glamour, reminiscent of the golden era of Hollywood. This classic hairstyle involves creating soft, cascading waves that exude vintage charm and sophistication.

Achieved with hot rollers, a curling iron, or other styling tools, retro waves offer a super glam look. The waves typically frame the face and fall gracefully, recalling the iconic hairstyles of movie stars from the mid-20th century. 


#12. Waterfall Braid

The waterfall braid is an enchanting and intricate hairstyle that mimics the gentle cascade of a waterfall. This braiding technique involves incorporating strands of hair into a regular braid while allowing others to gracefully fall through, creating a cascading effect reminiscent of falling water. 


#13. Low Bow

Wearing an oversized bow in a low ponytail is a chic and playful way to elevate a classic hairstyle. This trendy accessory adds a bold and feminine touch to the look, transforming a simple low ponytail into a stylish statement. 

The oversized bow, positioned at the base of the ponytail, draws attention with its eye-catching flair and can be chosen to match or contrast with the outfit. 


#14. Braided Heart

The braided heart is a great hairstyle that combines the artistry of braiding with a whimsical heart shape. 

This intricate hairstyle involves crafting two braids on each side of the head and carefully intertwining hair sections to form the top halves of a heart. The braids then converge at the back, where they are secured to complete the heart shape.
