The Sweetheart Ponytail, Your Valentine’s Day ‘Do

Valentines Hair

This sweet simple style is perfect for a romantic date night. Just pair it with a dozen roses and a box of chocolates!

 

Here are Miranda’s tips for creating the perfect sweetheart ponytail:

First, create volume by teasing the top layer of hair. Before pulling hair into a ponytail, use a brush to gently smooth down that top layer for a smooth, sweet look.

Next, section the hair and divide it into two ponytails. The primary ponytail should be at the crown of the head, or slightly lower; the second should be smaller and placed towards the back of the head. Secure with rubberbands.

After pulling the hair back into two ponytails, vertically insert bobby pins at the base of each ponytail. This will give the final look a little more lift while also making the ponytails more secure.

Spray the hair with a conditioning thermal protectant (like L’ANZA’s Magic Bullet), and then use a curling iron to create soft, loose curls.

Wrap one piece of hair around the base of the top ponytail (hiding the rubberband) and secure with bobby pins. This simple trick creates an elegant, polished look.

Smooth down any flyaways with a bit of hairspray and you now have a perfect date night ponytail! (By the way, that second ponytail is disguised by the higher one on top and gives the illusion of one long ponytail for a sleek, longer look.)

See, you look amazing! And the roses smell great, right?
