Romantic Hairstyles

Is February The Month For Love?

With Valentine’s Day and a Leap Day in the same month, there’s no doubt that February is the most romantic time of the year for many of us!

Valentine’s Day on February 14th gave lovers the chance to express their adoration for one another with flowers, chocolates and a Valentine’s card, while a popular tradition on Leap Day February 29th is for women to propose to their boyfriends.

So, with love very much in the air at the moment (and perhaps a few weddings to plan), expert hair stylist Jeanne van Zweel from COUPE Hair Salon in Sunninghill, has come up with some gorgeous romantic hairstyles to help you look your best.


Romantic Wavy Hairstyles

How you style your hair is often dependant on the occasion and the outfit you are planning to wear. If you’re attending an informal event such as a party or a dinner, you’ll want a more relaxed hairstyle.  Add some loose curls or waves to your hair for a sultry look.  This works well on mid-length and long hair and your waves can be loose and a bit messy or more structured, depending on the look you’re after.

Upstyles for Romantic Dates

You can’t go wrong with an upstyle or updo if you have a hot date.  Again, you can wear your hairstyle as structured or as casual as you fancy.  Pull out some tendrils to frame your face or add a flower or jewelled hair accessory for a pretty look.

Short Hair Ideas for Romantic Dates

Sexy hair styles are easy to achieve with short hair.  Make sure you have a precision cut and a dynamic colour to set off your style then either add lots of volume, have a professional blow dry for super smooth hair, or apply some gel to slick it back. If you have bobbed hair, why not try a few disconnected waves for a romantic look?

Wedding Hair Ideas

It’s a Leap Day on February 29th so why not stick with tradition and ask your fella to marry you?  If you’re planning a wedding day, COUPE Hair Salon in Sunninghill can create some sensational bridal hairstyles for the bride and her bridal party including bridesmaids and mother of the bride.

Why Do We Have Leap Days?

Leap Days are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the earth’s revolutions around the sun. It takes the earth approximately 365.242199 days (a tropical year) to circle once around the sun. If we didn’t add a day on February 29 every four years, we would lose almost six hours every year. After only 100 years, our calendar would be off by approximately 24 days in relation to the seasons.
