AD // Date night is a great opportunity to dress up and do something fun outside of the normal motions of every day life. I believe date nights are a great way to maintain a spark in your relationship and are super important to help you de-stress and have some quality time with just the two of you! A little later in this post, we’re going to look at my top 3 date night hairstyles.
Managing a relationship during lockdown wasn’t easy for anyone. Whether you were thrown into a long-distance relationship without warning or on the opposite end of the spectrum, found yourself spending every second with your partner when you couldn’t leave the house.
We either had to get creative with some long distance date ideas or understand how to navigate each other all day every day. The dating scene even changed after the pandemic and it was a very bizarre space to be in.
But now, in 2022, date nights are well and truly back on the menu! And whether you prefer a classic meal or are looking for date ideas for gamers, it’s always nice to dress up for date night!
So what about the date night hairstyles?
My hair is naturally very thick so it got to a point where it got too long to do anything with. There was no volume. No style. No nothing. You might think that having long hair, you have loads of options with what to do with it but that wasn’t the case for me.
So I finally bit the bullet and had it cut up to my shoulders at the end of 2019. 2019 was a transformative year for me and I wanted to enter into the New Year with a new spring in my step. And I thought a brand new and different hair cut would help with that. And it totally did! What is it about getting a new hair cut that makes you think you can take on the world?
Although shortly after, the pandemic put a halt to plans and we definitely had to lean in to more date ideas for couples at home during this time. It was still a nice opportunity to try out some date night hairstyles!
I do love experimenting with my hair and I’m definitely looking at trying some different things with it in the future. Perhaps I’ll go for a Baylage hair colour next time!
But let’s get onto the topic today! I’m sharing with you my 3 go-to date night hairstyles for a date night with my boy or a meal out with my friend:
Date Night Hairstyle No.1: Curly Wurly
My hair is naturally pretty straight so it takes a LOT of effort to get my hair curly like this.
For that reason, I don’t do this style often, unless it’s a special occasion like date night! This is something I couldn’t do when my hair was so long because the curls just simply wouldn’t hold for longer than 10 minutes. My curls stay in all day now!
For this look, first I’ll wash my hair and use something like the mdlondon hair dryer to dry it. I then use my straighteners to curl my hair. Twisting it in different directions for each strand to give it a slightly more messy look. If I’m going for ultra messy then I pop some mousse in afterwards but for this, I just hair sprayed and let it set.
Date Night Hairstyle No.2: Messy Up-Do
This is a great, easy look to do if your hair is already curly but you don’t want it down. So if I was going out and had my hair curly one night and was going out the following evening too, I’d probably shove it up in a messy up-do for something a bit different. It’s also a nice style for when you’re warm and want your hair off the back of your neck.
Again, this was the same curls I did with the straighteners. I simply shoved the back up in a low, messy bun and pulled out a few strands around the front and bottom for a bit of added texture and volume.
Date Night Hairstyle No.3: Milkmaid Braids
This is probably my favourite of the three because it’s SO CUTE and something I couldn’t do with long hair because I didn’t have enough room on my head for the actual braids! This look is perfect date night hairstyle for a Summer date night or a cute day out with friends. It gets your hair out the way but stays looking sweet all day long.
For this, I split my hair into half and messily fishtail braided both sides, securing at the bottom with a band. I then brought both braids up on top of my head and secured with a ton of hair slides. This look can be a messy or as neat as you like too. If you want it messier, just do looser braids!
I hope you liked these date night hairstyles from me! This is obviously something a bit different to your usual post you’d find from me but I do like to experiment with my hair so I enjoyed creating these looks for this post.
