Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and we know just how exciting it is to look forward to a romantic date night with your beloved partner! But ladies, before this day comes, we still have so much more to prepare besides receiving red roses and chocolates!
We want to tell you that some of the ideal hairstyles you pinned on your “Special Valentines Day” Pinterest board may actually be very difficult to execute!
That’s why this week Iles Formula will help you cover a couple of elegant yet easy-to-do hairstyles to stun your date or partner and make your Valentine’s Day a sparkling success.
1. French Braid
The French Braid is classy but sweet at the same time, giving an easy-going vibe to the look. It is perfect for Valentine’s Day as this hairstyle is versatile and very unlikely to make you look overdressed or underdressed, especially if you are not sure how your date will dress or your other half is of the more sporty, casual, or boy-next-door type.

The French Braid is similar to the traditional 3 strand braid but with a couple more steps. Click here if you have a deeper look into how to create a French Braid.
2. Rope Braid
The Rope braid is beautiful and a little more special than the French braid. Just look at J-Lo’s Rope braid, it’s gorgeous, isn’t it?
Although it looks intricate, it is not that difficult to create as it has an easy-to-control ponytail base. However, the key to this fabulous rope braid is to have the perfect base, smooth, clean hair with no tangles.
Tips: A must-have is the to apply the Iles Formula Finishing Serum either into your blow-dry before braiding and also on the strands as you are braiding. The silky texture the Iles serum delivers to hair gives perfect control during styling and will also prevent humidity setting in releasing frizzes.
How to Make a Rope Braid?
Step 1 - Brush your hair well. Apply Iles Formula Finishing Serum for easier control and the best results.
Step 2 - Put your hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic.
Step 3 - Separate the ponytail into two strands.
Step 4 - Twist both strands of the ponytail to the right.
Step 5 - Cross the right strand over the left and under, returning it back to the right. Repeat until you reach the ends.
Step 6 - Secure the ends with an elastic. Small dental elastics are a good size to be discreet.
Why not opt for what was seen this month at the Dior Paris Haute Couture Show. A false braid used with or as a hairband on healthy natural flowing hair. Try and get the braid matched as close as you can to your own hair color.
3. Low Bun Hairstyles
Low Buns give a natural air of elegance, and you can use different ways to create them with different accessories to make this easy hairstyle look fancy, ethereal, stylish, or carefree. You can achieve this look with any length of hair! Here are some inspirations for low bun hairstyles.

4. Twist Braids
Sometimes simply sweeping your long twist braids to one side gives you the most stylish, chic, and elegant look. Paired with an elegant little number, you will look lethal and sexy in no time!
Tips: This is for our lovelies with long and voluminous hair, as this style looks amazing with long braids. The longer the braids the better the effect. We suggest perhaps professionals help here, so be sure to have your appointment in place.

5. Bobby Pins
Utilize bobby pins.
They keep your hair tidy and stylish even in open-top car rides and atop a mountain! You can use an array of basic matte gold bobby pins to hold a small section of hair pulled from your ear level towards the middle to create a stylish and unique half up-do that is suitable for all occasions.
An easy to achieve, effortlessly chic and feminine look that is practical and looks great in just a moment! (Ladies, you can even take this look on a romantic Valentine’s Day hike!)
6. Add a Jewel or Twilly
Make a difference from your daily casual look by adding a jewel, Grandmother broaches work perfectly or an Iles Formula Twilly.

7. Soft and Sleek Romantic Waves
Hair quality and texture form the secret formula to these irresistible, feminine waves, and can be achieved by building up a good foundation for your hair.
