Whether you’re single, in a new relationship or even celebrating your 30th year of love together, it's always important to look and feel extra romantic on Valentine's Day. I'm going to show you how to create three flirtatious hairstyles that are guaranteed to bring out the inner Valentine's Day vixen in you.

Bouncy blowout

Step 1: Prep your damp hair by applying a generous amount of a volumizing hair product, like Volumifique, at the roots. This will give your otherwise limp hair some height throughout the day.

Step 2: Next, rough dry your hair almost 90 percent dry with a blow dryer and then complete the rest of the blowout by drying large horizontal sections of hair with your round brush. When you're finished with each section of hair, let it cool off before you remove this brush. This process will leave your hairstyle with lots of volume and bounce.

Step 3. Once you're done using the round brush and all of your hair is dry, smooth and bouncy, vigorously massage your scalp with your fingertips before you leave the house. This will lift your layers and give your hair a natural, lived-in style.

Enjoy your bouncy blowout!

Retro '60s Ponytail

Step 1: Using a comb, start this style by creating a deep, clean side part.

Step 2: Take the hair coming from the top of your head and crown, and back comb (tease) it all at the roots. Try not to mess up the clean side part you created already.

Step 3:

Lightly brush your hair back into a low symmetrical ponytail, and secure it with an elastic. Brush it flatter around your face ever so gently by your crown. You can also add softness around your face by gently pulling a few hairs from the fringe out of the ponytail.

Carefree curls

Step 1: Prep your dry hair with a light-hold hairspray such as Laque Couture to help it take and hold the shape of the iron you're about to use.

Step 2: Curl tiny sections of hair around a small curling iron. Don't stop until everything is curly.

Step 3: Slowly brush the hair around the face away from the side part. This will create definition and a soft S-wave in the front. It's important not to brush the rest of the hair becuase you want everything else to remain messy and curly.

Enjoy your carefree curls!
