We polled the top celebrity stylists in the biz on their favorite hairstyles to rock on the most romantic day of the year and which sparkly, pretty pieces to add to them.
"I really love the new hair jewelry line, Litter. You can put their pieces on hair that’s down and casual, or up, to make it more formal. We used Litter a lot on X Factor to spice up the contestants’ styles.” —Linda Flowers, lead hair designer of "The Hunger Games"and "X Factor"
“Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion for a woman to get her hair off of her face and highlight her facial features. Using a curling iron or waver (I use the SULTRA Bombshell Cone Rod Curling Iron), create loose waves throughout the hair and pull them into a ponytail, securing with a chic holder. If you have highlights, this style is great, because it beautifully accentuates the hair’s dimension.” —Master Colorist and Co-Owner of Warren-Tricomi Salons Joel Warren
“I personally love a nice chignon for Valentine’s Day—it’s very soft and romantic. Try adding a sparkly heart brooch or bobby pin on one side.” —Pierre Michel Salon Senior Stylist Moulay Yacoubi
“I would suggest a beautiful side braid with an additional braided headband. Also, pay attention to your color—I advise rich, warm colors to enhance your natural color. Semi-permanent color makes the hair really shiny and healthy looking and adds specific tone without the commitment.” —Celebrity Stylist and Owner of Adel Atelier Salon Adel Chabbi
“I love decorating hair with jewelry or embellished accessories–whether it's a brooch, hair pin, barrette, or even earrings—they help take a look from day to night. After all, a little sparkle can make a low messy bun look more elegant. For Valentine's Day, I recommend working this accessory in on the side of the bun or even in the back. Use a dry shampoo like Vidal Sassoon Pro Series ColorFinity Dry Shampoo ($4.99, soap.com) for texture, so it will be a lot easier to secure the accessory.” —Celebrity Stylist and Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Expert Ben Skervin
"My favorite hair accessory for Valentine's Day? Bobby pins! There are so many different things you can do with them. One of my favorite romantic looks was the one I created for Jenny Packham's Spring/Summer 2014 runway show where a single pin was used on one side, about 2 inches from the part. Paired with bouncy curls, this accessory suggests a sweet, yet sultry look.” —TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu
“Whether or not you have a valentine, make February 14th special by changing up your regular hairstyle for the night. Go for a textured ponytail and add Remington’s animal-print headband ($4.97, remingtonproducts.com).” —Remington Celebrity Stylist Richard Marin
