If you’re like most of us, you’ll want to make sure your date night look is absolutely flawless. After all, you want to make sure you catch Cupid’s eye.
Most girls assume that the best hairstyles are the ones they see in Elle, Cosmopolitan, and on the runways of Paris fashion week.
However, as it turns out, men have a different perspective. While women might say avant garde, their significant others might respond with a simple “no thank you.”
We found out what hairstyles real men liked on women, and we came up with the top three for you (and a couple of the worst!)
Looks they love:
1. Classic & curled-
You can’t go wrong with an old Hollywood hairstyle. Give yourself a deep side part, some volume on top, and big curls—while a hot iron might get the trick done quickly, a set of rollers will get you those huge rolling curls.
This classic ‘do always looks elegant, feminine, and sophisticated. Add a pair of bright red lips and a little black dress and you’re ready to go.
Believe it or not, men love a splash of color. Whether it was a sleek lavender or a subtle ombre, a bit of color showed the woman had a personality. Men liked to see that a woman had her own unique sense of style.
Throw in a bit of some sea-salt spray for some texture and let your waves natural waves free. There’s nothing more attractive than a woman who’s confident enough to let her true self shine through.
Looks to avoid:
1. Tight & messy buns-
While a tight bun might look great with your blazer, it won’t go over as well with your date. Men tend to find buns business-like and stuffy even when they’re well done, especially if your hair is pulled back so tightly from your face it looks like it’s stretching your skin.
You’ll want to keep the messy bun for the beach. Those wispy strands might look romantic on the sea shore, but on a fancy night out, it looks like you just threw yourself together. Valentine’s Day is a chance for you to flaunt those locks, not tie them away.
2. Hair extensions-
Hair extensions can give you that gorgeous, luscious mane you thought only existed in Pantene commercials. However, as it turns out, men hate these fake clip-ins. They love running their fingers through your hair, but will stop short when he feels odd bumps at the base of your head.
3. Loose ponytails-
There’s nothing that says “I don’t care” to a man like a ponytail. No matter how bad of a hair day you’re having, ponytails are never the answer. Yes, you might have added a bit of poof or a clever heart-shaped braid design, but he’s not going to notice. Just save them for the gym!
Whatever hairstyle you choose, make sure you pop open a Remilia hair capsule when you’re in the shower so that your locks come out silky smooth for your big night out.
After all, there’s NOTHING sexier than shiny, healthy hair.
