Valentines day is special for all those in love. If you are going out on a date, put in great thought and care to your complete look. Don't ignore your hair as it forms an essential part of projecting your personality. You only know what looks best on you but here are a few tips and suggestions that might come handy in making that special night extra special.

‘Tress’ up for the night, and beyond
There are many things that can be done at home for a casual night out. Try these:

Finger dry your hair with some texturising product in it and leave it out. After it is dry, scrunch some finishing product to the ends to create the romantic beach look!

Putting your hair up, add some tube roses into it or some exotic flower to add drama. Put on one side and make sure it is not neat!
Shake your hair well to ensure that all the curls are looking more natural.

Use serum in your hair before blow-drying to ensure that the cuticle is closed and protection is given to the hair.

Every time you shampoo, condition it. Shampoo opens the cuticle and a conditioner closes it.

Face yourself
Face shape and cut is something that decides what haircut will look good on it. Below is a general idea about hairstyles that would suit you best:

Oval face: Anything looks good on your perfect well-proportioned features. Don’t hide behind your face; show it off.
Round face: Make sure you add fullness to your crown and keep your part off centre. Don’t create bulk around your chin.

Long face: Make sure you don’t add height. Give your look some width to offset the length. Do not part your hair in the middle, as it will make your face appear longer.

Square look: You need to do everything to add softness to your look — curl and roundness is the best option.
