3 Pretty Hairstyles for Valentine’s Day

pretty hairstyles for valentines day 2016

I’m not the kind of girl to do my hair for any occasion. My idea of doing my hair is braiding it or maybe straightening it if I’m feeling fancy and then calling it a day. So, when I was sent the Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curling Wand, I didn’t have high expectations of liking it, but I was super surprised to find that I really do like it and it’s incredibly easy to use, even if you’re incredibly lazy or lack the hair skills (like me LOL). Since I had such an easy (and actually fun) time using this curling wand set, I decided I wanted to share 3 pretty hairstyles for Valentine’s Day that are easy to customize, dress up or down, and have fun with in any way you like.

Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curling Wand

Here’s a look at what’s included with the Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curling Wand set. It comes with the main handle and cord with 8 different curling wand attachments of various sizes and shapes. There are several different wand curling barrels, tapered curling wands of varying widths, and then a funky wand with a bunch of bulbs on it for more natural looking curls (shown below).

Also included is a heat protective glove for you to wear while using this curling wand so you don’t burn your fingers or anything. It’s actually really helpful. I thought I would be smart and not use it at first, but then I burnt my finger and realized, Oh. That’s why the glove was included. I am an idiot. So, yeah. Use the glove, people!

Everything in this set comes in a convenient box and then the wands and everything are neatly organized in this roll up pouch where each wand has it’s own little pocket which is handy for storage, especially if you live in a one bedroom apartment like I do.

I weirdly decided to show all the hairstyles up in my face, circa 2005 Myspace style. I don’t know why I just like the look of it (artistically) better than normal photos (don’t judge me!). Anyway, you can see the hair pretty okay, I hope!

Touseled Hair

This first hairstyle was done with the largest barrel wand in the set. I previously straightened my hair so if you want this look and don’t already have straight hair, then I recommend doing that beforehand or a day ahead of time to make things easier on yourself. Once that’s done, loosely curled small sections of your hair around the barrel and hold for 20-30 seconds each time. You can do as much of your hair as your like. I did mainly the front with a few pieces in the back to keep it consistent. It doesn’t look curled necessarily, but I was going for more of a messy hair look. You can hold your hair on the barrel for a few seconds longer if you want more of the curl to come through. That’s totally up to you. I finished this look with a light mist of Olivine Love + Salt Spray {REVIEW HERE} which is great for loose waves and smells like a tropical paradise.

Natural Romantic Curls

This next hairstyle are really natural, almost Victorian style curls. I created them using the funky barrel with all the little bulbs (balls?) on it. It creates really natural looking curls because the barrel alternates between wider and smaller so the curls come out looking more like real curls would. The effect is super pretty! I curled various pieces of my hair and then I used a few bobby pins to secure my hair over to one side. The effect is super romantic and perfect for date night, Valentine’s Day, an upcoming wedding or event, or anytime you want to feel fancy! To finish this look, I used Tabitha James Kraan Hair Perfume as it includes natural plant oils in a spray form which helps the hair look healthy and nourished while fighting frizz.

Big Fancy Curls

This last hairstyle was done with a medium sized barrel wand. I held the wand on various strands of my hair for 20-40 seconds each depending on how long it took my hair to hold the curl. These curls look a lot more done up and less natural than the previous one because they are bigger curls. You can keep them big and rock that look or you can shake each curl out for a more messy, natural look; it’s really up to you. I also think these kinds of curls would be pretty if you put your hair in a pony tail or low side pony tail and then you could just curl the ends. The result is very pretty, romantic, and understated. To complete this look, I used some OLO Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo because my roots were feeling a little oily and that helped bring back some volume – plus it smells amazing ♥

    Curls NEVER stay in my hair… 🙁

    1. January 20, 2016 at 8:11 AM

      I had a hard time getting them to stay in mine too, but a little Evolvh styling lotion usually helps me with that if anything.

    I am awful at curling my own hair, but those romantic curls are super pretty! I may need to attempt to experiment…

    1. January 20, 2016 at 8:26 AM

      So am I haha. I’m not even good at straightening my hair so I was surprised how easy this thing is to use! Definitely think this helps make it easier lol.

  5. January 21, 2016 at 9:06 AM

    Awesome hair ideas! I find that I get lazy with doing my hair, so I’ve been keeping is natural for the last few months. Maybe I’ll gain some motivation to pick up some hair products and try something new! Thanks so much for the inspiration1

    1. January 21, 2016 at 12:40 PM

      I do too haha. This was one of the few times I had fun doing my hair and it’s kind of inspired me to try more lol. I’m glad to inspire you! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    I love the roll up pouch! LOL I would have done the same thing and not used the glove! I tend to need to learn lessons the hard way 🙂
    I love your hair!

      me too! It’s surprisingly handy and organized. Haha glad I’m not alone in learning through “experience” lol. thanks for stopping by ♥

    I’m terrified of using one of those things, I saw a girl burn her bangs off once with them…not cool. Maybe some day I’ll get brave and try it. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing at Manic Monday Linky Party. I hope you come back next week!

    1. January 26, 2016 at 11:00 AM

      haha are you talking about the YouTube video or you legit saw someone IRL burn their hair off? That’s so scary! My advice is count to 20 and then release. Don’t just wing it lol. It’s easy to be absentminded and just let it burn, as it were. It’s not as bad as you think, though, and you can always use a low temperature to lower the damage and risk of burning your hair off lol. thanks for stopping by!

  8. January 24, 2016 at 9:03 PM

    Tousled hair is #1 in my books!

    1. January 26, 2016 at 8:53 AM

      thanks Johanna! That one is my favorite look since it’s easier to do 😛 was surprised how much I liked the curls though. thanks for visiting!

    i don’t own a curling iron! maybe i should consider getting one 🙂

    1. January 26, 2016 at 11:21 AM

      this one is really awesome because of all the different attachment sizes so I definitely recommend getting something like this. Curling irons/wands are so pricey and I personally think the different attachments adds a lot of value. Unless you consistently do the same styles, then maybe the one size barrel would work for you. It really depends on your taste, but I definitely think it’s forced me to try new things and I like that 🙂 thanks for stopping by!

  10. January 27, 2016 at 2:29 PM

    These are all great styles! Thanks so much for sharing at Inspiration Thursday.

    1. January 28, 2016 at 10:37 AM

      me too! I was surprised about it – I am not a hair person, but I really loved this 🙂 Let me know how you like it if you get one!

      thanks Krystel! It’s a curling wand, but definitely agree 🙂 It works really well ♥

  14. February 17, 2016 at 10:45 AM

    I love pretty, bouncy curls. Cute hair tutorial!

    1. February 17, 2016 at 3:26 PM

      thanks Cara! I’m glad you like my looks. This tool made is seriously easy for a not-skilled person like me haha.

  15. January 30, 2017 at 8:47 PM

    My daughter in law uses one of these irons with a glove and swears by them. I will keep the same old ugly 1970s version until it quits on me. I think I will replace it with one of these new multi headed ones. So nice

    1. January 31, 2017 at 9:12 AM

      they are really handy and so quick! I don’t normally style my hair too often, but I love this wand. It’s so useful and pretty easy to figure out, even for people like me who aren’t all into hair styling. Hope you get one when your favorite one dies lol. thanks for stopping by, Leanna! xx

  16. January 31, 2017 at 2:54 PM

    I need one of these curlers in my life – I love curls !!

    1. February 1, 2017 at 9:16 AM

      it’s so easy to use too! I love mine 🙂
