Valentines Day Do: Twisted Half Up

We know a lot of you are holding off to have your date night tomorrow night or even Sunday night to celebrate, or maybe you're just having a fun ladies night! We thought we would give you a little last minute hair option for the occasion. This look was featured on the great Style Me Pretty. So you know you will be fashion forward featuring this style. :)


Add a pair of heels and maybe even a flirty dress! You'll be sure to make a night that your Valentine will remember. If you are going out more casually this Valentine's pair this look with heels, some skinny jeans, and a sparkly top!  
 



Materials:
- 1 Inch curling iron
- Comb
- Bobby pins
- Texturizing spray and/or Hairspray
(We used Bumble and Bumble's Surf Spray and Classic hairspray.)


Steps:
1. Start by prepping the hair. We sprayed the hair with Surf Spray and then dried this into the hair. Then we loosely curled the entire head to add texture. You can make your curl type any you prefer. 
(Side note: if you have naturally curly hair rock it with this half up half down look, no need to curl!)
2.-4. Begin with one side, grab a section by your temple and tease to create fullness. Twist this section towards the back of your head and pin.
5.-6. Grab another piece (tease as well) from under the section you just did. Then twist this section over the previous section and pin.
7. Repeat on the other side.
8. You should now be left with a loose section right in the middle. Grab a bit of it and begin to roll it up with your fingers. Pin this into a twist, or in our case- we rolled it into a small bun. Spray and re-curl any pieces that need to be. We left a lot of baby hairs and fly aways around the face to create a relaxed feel.


Happy Valentines day from Irrelephant! <3
