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.

I’d love to hear what sort of styles you go for! Which one of these is your favourite? Let me know!


  1. I love all these looks on you!! Curly wurly is my favorite and I have tried so hard to curl my hair with my straightener but always mess it up!! You look beautiful with all these styles and I hope you have lots of fun date nights!!

  2. Ooh I love your suggestions! My hair’s naturally curly and I often find myself doing messy updos. I’ve never tried milkmaid braids before but I love them on you – I’m definitely going to give them a go myself! Thank you so much for sharing x

  3. I shaved my head because I was completely hopeless when it came to doing it. The messy up do is cute.

  4. Love these hairstyles! I am naturally rubbish at hairstyles and the only time my hair is actually nice is when my hairdresser styles it for me 😂 I don’t tend to use straighteners or curlers I braid my hair after I wash it (again a very crap braid may I say) and then I just sleep in that and take it out in the morning and voila some curls 😂 I do love a messy bun though!

  5. Girlllll look at you with all these ads ;))) So happy & proud of you!!! These looks are so pretty! I recently took my hair from medium-long to medium-short which is always a big change for me bc I also adorrre long hair. It’s fun to experiment with new styles! x

  6. You have such pretty hair! I love the braids on you. I have the opposite problem, my hair is medium length but VERY thin so I can’t do much with it at all!

  7. I suck at most things hair related. Mine is thigh length and naturally wavy/ lightly curly so I tend to let it do its own thing mos of the time. I totally get your point for making the chop though, I definitely feel like I have too much hair to do much with a lot of the time. I love messy up dos but I find they get so heavy and hurt my head after quite a short period of time because I have so much of it x


  8. I’ve only just grown my hair down to my shoulders. I had it as a pixie cut for years! I’m excited I can finally put it in a ponytail lol! HairstyleH are a new thing I’ve not attempted yet! Can’t believe you can plait and style your own hair!

  9. These all look so pretty! I love milkmaid braids but I’ve never figured out how to fishtail. My hair is getting unmanageably long again and I’m thinking about a cut I just can’t decide what to do. Great post!

  10. I looove curly hair on you – it’s absolutely gorgeous and really suits and frames your face! 🙂 I’m trying to experiment a bit more with my hair lately, so can’t wait to try and copy some of these gorgeous styles 🙂 x

  11. Omg I am so hopeless with my hair. Either it’s just in a really high ponytail or left down and brushed. I’m not creative at all and I’m terrible at plaits. Your hair looks really lovely though. Thanks for sharing some new hair inspo!

  12. I’m completely helpless when it comes to styling my hair – I would love to learn how to do the milkmaid braids because they look so pretty!

  13. Tbh, I don’t really do much with my hair. It used to be super long and I just left it straight down most of the time. Now I’ve had a major cut I might start experimenting a bit like you have.

  14. Loving all of these styles! I’m so badly in need of a color
    Change at the moment.

    My go to hair style is usually a messy bun or a side braid. Right now I’m growing my hair out a bit because it was recently cut short a few months ago.

  15. Love the 2nd look here! My hair is naturally curly so if it’s having a bad frizz day, I’ll do a low bun however if I’m wanting to put effort in, I’ll straighten it!

  16. You look gorgeous! I’m loving your curly hair, it looks great! And milkmaid braids are SO cute, thanks for reminding me of this pretty style! Have a great week beauty ❤️

  17. I love all of these on you – curly hair really suits you! I don’t do anything really with my hair as it’s thick and wild – I straighten it to avoid having to tie it up (looks unprofessional down and hair up =migraines) though I do love having it in a bun so then i can show off my undercut.

  18. Ah these look so nice! I am rubbish at doing my hair – it spends most of its time in a ponytail, a bun and if it is down, I’ve ever straightened it or curled it! Your hair colour is also really pretty!

  19. Love these styles – especially the milkmaid braids! So cute! I’m rubbish at doing hair – I basically have 3 hairstyles I can do and I think they’re all so boring and basic!
