Whether you’re staying in or going out, Valentine’s Day calls for something special. You want to feel romantic. So, why not start with your hair? Here are several romantic hairstyles you can pull off in minutes… no styling skills required! These are equally perfect for watching Netflix in your pajamas or for dining out dressed to the nines.
These synthetic hairpieces are my secret weapon for quick, yet statement-making hair.
Madison Braids is my go-to brand for this type of hair accessory. It carries headbands in a wide range of shades—even silver gray! Each hairpiece has an adjustable elastic strap at the bottom to ensure a comfortable fit. I was a bit nervous I’d pick the wrong color, but found “brunette” a perfect match. When choosing your shade, make sure to consider your hair color at the roots as well as any highlights. If you’re stuck between two shades, I would err on the darker side. This will help you get the most natural look.
While this might look complex, it’s as easy as romantic hairstyles get! To achieve the look, I used the Addie Knots style band. First, style your hair as you normally would. I personally prefer a loose, soft curl because I think that fits the style of the hairpiece best.
Now, pull the headband on your head, so it sits like a crown. Push it back ever so slightly, so it rests slightly behind your hairline. Moving your hands to the back of your head, pull a section of hair out and over the headband. If desired, tuck a small section of hair around your face and secure by wrapping around the headband.

For low key celebrations, I love the idea of fishtail braid—especially if you use your fingers to soften the look and loosen the braid. I used the Arisa Fishtail for this style and finished it off by fashioning my own hair into a fishtail braid. Don’t let fishtails intimidate you! Take it from a gal who can’t even French braid—these are super easy to achieve. The video (above) will walk you through the styling… I have another video tutorial in this post or you can follow the instructions below:
In a hurry? Try the easiest of our romantic hairstyles! For this look, you’ll want to part your hair on the side. Style the bottom in the manner you prefer (I use a curling want for loose waves). Now, simply pull up your braided headband…. and ta-da… you’re done! It looks elaborate, but is really a breeze.
