20 Valentine’s Day Hair Ideas That You'll Actually Want to Wear

By Ama Kwarteng, Cosmopolitan

Whether you're celebrating with your boo or going out with your friends, Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to try out a new hairstyle. Buttttt, it can be low-key hard to find that perfect look. You don't want to look like you tried way too hard (even if you did), but you also don't want to look like you legit rolled out of bed and didn't even brush your hair. Well, don't worry—I compiled the cutest Valentine's Day hair ideas from Insta to help you out. Forget those corny, elaborate updos of the past—these Valentine's Day hair ideas are sleek, modern, and cool. Screenshot your faves to wear on February 14th (and any day after).

Julianne Hough's Soft Waves

You could be the girl with the full-on barrel curls on Valentine's Day...or you could be chic. Use a flat iron to create soft waves that'll frame your face and won't make you look like you're going to a middle school V-Day dance.


If you're looking for a sign that you should get bangs, this is it. Do it already!!! Not only is it a cute Valentine's Day look, but honestly they're pretty easy to style too. Make your bangs lie flat by using a mini-hair straightener, then spritz on a hairspray to keep flyaways at bay.

Hailey Bieber's Deep Side Part

Got last minute plans? This deep side part is the easiest way to switch up your look without having to book a Drybar appointment. Plus, it adds instant dimension to your look.

Wavy Bob

"But there aren't a lot of styles for short hair," is no longer a valid excuse for wearing the same basic bob look every day. Break out of your style rut and add texture to your hair in the form of soft waves.

Olivia Culpo's Side-Swooped Bangs

If you're not down to get actual bangs, fake it with this Valentine's Day hairstyle. Bump the ends with a curling iron to finish off the retro vibe.

Brushed Back Hair

Or, you could ditch the part completely and brush your hair straight back, like this Valentine's Day hairstyle. Work a hair oil through your ends to keep them sleek and shiny. 


Shay Mitchell's Braided Ponytail

You know what's less expensive that a face lift? A snatched braided ponytail. Spray on a texturizing spray before you begin braiding to add some grit and hold to this Valentine's Day hairstyle.

Hair Trendils

Throw your hair back into a bun, secure it with a few bobby pins, then leave out a couple face-framing pieces for a simple, yet cute, Valentine's Day hairstyle.

Low Bun

Instead of throwing your hair into a messy topknot, try out this sleek low bun for Valentine's Day. Don't worry about setting this look with a hairspray—it looks really pretty when it's a little messy and soft.


Twisted Ponytail

Okay, so, this may not be the easiest look to recreate (you may need to grab a friend for help), but isn’t it so dreamy? Once you have your ponytail twisted, slick it down with a hair gel.


Hair Accessories

After you deck out your ears in jewelry, accessorize TF out of your hair by pinning in a few super cute, mismatched hair clips


Messy Waves

Go for a full bombshell vibe this Valentine's Day with sexy, messy waves. For a super smooth look, work a shine-inducing oil through your hair.


Kehlani's High Ponytail

Reach new heights with a high ponytail to complete your V-Day look. Think more Ariana Grande, less high school cheerleader. Lay your edges with a non-flaky and long-lasting edge control gel.


Kim Kardashian's Beachy Waves

I love the idea of styling your Valentine's Day hair in beach waves. It’s super easy to do—just spritz on a salt spray and scrunch up your hair to define it.


Double Bun

Whip up some double buns this Valentine's Day—no oven necessary. All you’ll need is a rat-tail comb, hair gel, and bobby pins to copy this look IRL.


High Bun

Go for a Valentine's Day hair look that'll make you look extra fancy and rock a sleek high bun. Smooth a styling cream throughout the finished style to slick down stray hairs.


Bobby Pins

Bobby pins are usually hidden, but it's way more fun to make them the main attraction in your Valentine's Day hairstyle. Go crazy and stack a bunch of bobby pins on the side of your head. I promise, you’ll look cool (not crazy).


Half-Up, Half-Down

Throw the top half of your hair into a twisted top knot and mist a texturizing spray to the lower half for an effortless, cool girl updo look that's perfect for Valentine's Day.


Margot Robbie's Hollywood Waves

Switch it up this Valentine's Day with a deep side part and classic Hollywood waves. The combo of the two gives your hair instant depth and dimension, which keeps it from looking flat.


Zendaya's Cornrows

Take a page out of Zendaya's book and rock these straight-back cornrows this Valentine's Day. Be sure to wrap your braids in a silk scarf to keep your hair smooth while you get some shut-eye.
