Style hair in vintage, sleek ways this Valentine's
Wear hues of red on Valentine's Day, which falls on Feb 14, for sure but don't forget your locks. Give a glamorous hair makeover by trying vintage curls, side-swept quiff and more.
Celebrity hair maestro Asgar Saboo suggests the types of hairstyle one should opt for depending on the plans for Valentine's Day:
* Intimate dinner for two
- Vintage curls: Use volume spray before drying your hair, then insert hair rollers working your way from the top of the head. Leave the rollers in for at least an hour. Make sure to brush out the curls with a comb and use plenty of hairspray for maximum hold.
- Side-swept quiff: It is a classic hairstyle for men and has been loved all these years. Create a side parting and then dry your hair into the direction desired. Then use a styling cream, wax or wet look gel for a slick look. For maximum hold, you can also use a strong hairspray.
* Party hairdo
- Fishtail braid: Divide your hair into two large sections down the middle. Weave from the left by taking a strand of hair from the left side and pull it over the top of the rest of the left section. Take it under the right section. Ultimately, you are pulling the strand over the left section and under the right section. Repeat the same steps when you weave from the right section until you reach the bottom of the braid. Tie the end with a ribbon that matches your outfit.
- "The Great Gatsby" look: For smoother and silkier finish, your hair needs to be absolutely clean and well conditioned. After drying it, you need to get your hands on some hair styling products such as hair gel, wax or high-shine hair spray and then comb it into a far-left parting. You can also smooth a little moulding paste to keep your hair in place.
