Love is in the hair this Valentine’s Day! We have the Valentine’s Day hairstyles you'll love, whether you have plans for a fancy date, laying low at home, or celebrating Galentine’s Day. With the help of our easy hairstyle ideas and a fresh haircut from your local Great Clips salon, you'll be head over heels for how you look and feel this Valentine’s Day. 

For the romantic date night...

Voluminous Curls

Looking to elevate your Valentine’s date night look? Nothing is more romantic than voluminous curls! For those not already gifted with curls, you can achieve this style with a large-barrel curling iron or a flat iron. Set your device on low heat and curl away from your face. Don't forget to protect your strands with Solutions by Great Clips Thermal Protection Spray

For the last-minute plans...

Top Knot

If last minute plans are more your style, you likely live life on-the-go – making the top knot the perfect style for you. Start by pulling your hair to the top of your head and wrapping it into a bun, pinning loose strands to prevent fly-aways. Spray with a hairspray, such as Solutions by Great Clips Buildable Hairspray, to keep it all in place. You can even pull out a few strands toward the front to add a face-framing appearance or add a red/pink ribbon to help the style feel more festive. 

For a Galentine's Day brunch...

Wispy Half-Up

Hanging out with your best gals for Valentine’s Day? We love this effortless but stylish hairstyle for your Galentine’s festivities that takes just seconds to achieve. Start with clean hair and loosely collect the top section of your hair. Pull the hair to the back of your head and secure with bobby pins or a cute clip. To achieve the wispy look, pull a few face-framing pieces out. 

For a self-care Valentine's Day...

High Ponytail

If you’re going to be spending Valentine’s Day pampering yourself, we recommend a high ponytail. This style keeps your hair out of your face so you can fully appreciate the movie you’re watching. It’s also the perfect style if you’ll be enjoying an at-home spa night, because no one likes when their hair ends up in their clay mask.  

For Valentine's Day school parties...

Braided Pigtails

Helping your kiddo get ready for a school Valentine’s party? After starting with a fresh haircut from your local Great Clips salon, help them achieve a fun and sweet style that’ll keep their hair secure for school celebrations. We love braided pigtails for a fun take on a classic style. 

To achieve this style, evenly part your child’s hair in the middle. Begin French braiding on one side just until you reach the back of their head. Secure the remainder of the hair with an elastic. Repeat this step on the other side. For an extra festive touch, accessorize with bows or colorful scrunchies. 

For him...

Classic Comb Over

If you’re looking to impress your special someone, this classic hairstyle instantly upgrades any casual look and can work for both short and long haircuts. Wet your hair and grab a comb to part to one side. Once hair is parted, add a small amount of pomade to your hands and work through hair to add volume and hold your hair in place.
