The best romantic hairstyles for your Valentine's Day plans

For long hair, a side ponytail is a beautiful yet fun look that is terrific for going out.

Step 1:

Start by creating an off-center part in towel-dried hair, then use a paddle brush and your blow dryer to finish drying the hair.

Step 2:

Smooth the front portion of your hair toward the back and then toward the opposite side of the head from the part. Brush all the hair on the sides and crown toward the nape of your neck.

Step 3:

Gather the hair all together into a ponytail and position the base of the ponytail behind your ear, then secure with an elastic band.

Step 4:

If you want a smooth ponytail, use a flat iron to straighten as necessary. If you want a wavy ponytail, use a large barrel curling iron to create waves. Spritz your entire head with your favorite setting spray.
