Hair and Makeup Ideas for this Valentine

Article by Nikki Brown Stylecaster

January felt like an entire year and February has finally arrived– a major feat if you ask us. There’s much to be considered during the shortest month of the year, but more often than not, Valentine’s Day hair and makeup ideas are something that have probably crossed your mind. If not, social media has already reminded you and now, you either could care less or are making plans to woo or be wooed by a bae.

If you’re part of the latter, that may include stepping out of the house and doing anything from a fancy dinner with your special someone to a night out with your other single friends. Regardless of where you’re headed, a face beat to the gawds or hair snatched into a camera-ready ‘do never hurt. To be honest, we’re all for getting dolled up any day of the week, including holidays.

This one is practically synonymous with red lipstick and well, not much else. So instead of sticking to the status quo, we’ve got some seriously stunning inspo that go beyond the basic. From micro-braids tied into a glittery bow to blended-out red eyeshadow, here are some hair and makeup combos we’re this close to trying ourselves.

Tie It With a Bow

If you’re leaving your makeup neutral like Zoe Kravitz and would rather put more effort–but not too much effort–into your hair, a blinged-out hair bow gets the job done in seconds.

Tall, Long and Sleek

When you want to keep hair out of your face, but still have something to run your fingers through, may we suggest a high ponytail with serious inches, a la Ciara?

All Pink Everything

Leave it to Rihanna to remind us of the ever-elusive power of a pink lipstick (probably from Fenty Beauty) and tousled hair waves.

Stunning Shimmer

We can’t think of a better combo than foiled, silver eyeshadow surrounding a set of brilliant brown eyes. Combined with a glossy lip and few coats of mascara and you’re as good as gold.

Tuck ‘Em Away

We didn’t think Bettie Page bangs could get any cuter, until we saw this textured variation modeled by Yara Shahidi.

Blush Lids & Lips

Once you can get over this perfect blunt bob, get into the rosy eyeshadow and matching lipstick against Kiki Layne’s gorgeous brown skin.

Understated Under-Liner

Effortless may just be a pipe dream, but you’ll get pretty close if you throw your hair into some pigtails like Janelle Monae and opt for under-liner, which can be as attention-grabbing as a face full of makeup.

Ramp Up With Red

Red lipstick is classic, but why not take it to new heights with matching red eyeshadow and a bit of shimmer just because? Margot Robbie totally gets it.

Pretty in Peach

Vanessa Hudgens knows the power of Pantone’s color of the year. So much so, that she delivered top-notch beauty goals in head-to-toe coral.

Classic Updo

A sophisticated updo like Danai Gurira’s will never not look beautiful.

Blend It Out

If you’re not into building color on top of color, blend it out instead and pair with a glossy lip like Lili Reinhart.

Bejeweled Tresses

How could you not be inspired to dress up like a bonafide queen after seeing Indya Moore in a bordeaux lip and updo accessorized with gold rings?

“Effortless” Ponytail

There’s a wide spectrum of effortless, I-woke-up-like-this ponytails out there, but one of our faves is the one that houses lived-in beach waves, like this one on Olivia Munn.

Floral Bun

Though we’re always enamored with Lady Gaga’s makeup, there’s no denying the can’t-look-away appeal of this low bun, which resembles the type of flowers you’d get in a Valentine’s Day bouquet.

Match Your Fashion

When all else fails and your creative muscles need rest, match your outfit to your makeup like Emmy Rossum.

Messy Curls

The more curls, the better…at least according to us and Amber Heard.

The Classic Half-Up, Half-Down

Kelly Rowland’s light pink lip and half-up, half-down do is a look we’d wear every single day of the year.

How to avoid being Ripped of by Mobile Hair Extension Technicians.

Tina is classed as a vunerable person. After suffering many health issues including cancer, Tina wanted to attend a forthcoming wedding looking lovely and having hair like she use too.

She made contact with a mobile person who had been advertising for over 4 years on gumtree. (Now there is nothing wrong with gumtree it offer an effective service) She explained her problem and what she wanted. The technician said she could provide the service, quoted her several hundreds of pounds and said she would personally deliver and fit the bespoke wig the following week after requesting a £200 deposit.

The following week she turned up on the doorstep of her now client, put the wig on her head, added some glue collected several hundreds of pounds by bank transfer and requested she receive another £10 cash for a taxi to the train station.

The following week this clients head was on fire, she had an allergy reaction to the glue and nylon base and the wig kept falling off her head.

The technician failed to do a pre consultation, measure her head, find out about any allergies or even do a pre fitting.

So here are the things you should look out for prior to doing business with a mobile hair and beauty self employed person

A) Do they have insurance

Whether you are working from home or a commercial site you can get businesses insurance. Normally insurance companies want evidence of your qualifications and experience.

B) Do they have a certificate of Business registration

All businesses should register with their local authority who will do a site visit to see if you comply with health and safety. They seems thou a certificate of registration once thou comply.

C) Do they have a website or facebook page

Often they will display previous clients photos or reviews. Contact details and trading address.

D) Do they have references or reviews

Facebook, google or blogs will give you a window into what clients think of their services.

E) Do they have a letterhead or invoice

Apart from setting a good tone, contact details sms brand is clearly visible.

F) Do they have terms and condition of service and sales

This is important. It gives you am ideas of how they will deal with problem, guaranteed work and what you can expect from them.

G) What is there money back or put it right policy.

It is important to understand this and get it in writing, even a text message to your phone from there’s is evidence

Dont be afraid to ask. Your risk assessment will pay off

Needless to say we were there to help her with her hair goals and achieved the results she wanted.
