Love Yourself This Valentines

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, whatever your plans are, whether you have no plans at all, are out with the girls or celebrating with that special someone, make sure you celebrate self love. What’s a great way to do this? Treat yourself to something that makes you feel good, whether that's trying a new hairstyle with some new products or giving your hair a boost of TLC, the choice is yours.

The New “It Girl” Hairstyle

A style we have been seeing again and again across our Instagram feeds is the “liquid hair” trend. This is a super shiny look that made appearances towards the end of last year and hasn't shown any sign of stopping this year. 

This is a trend that has been styled by celebrities including Jourdan Dun, Jodie Comer and Dua Lipa so a perfect look to go for if you are wanting to feel like a celebrity this Valentines. 

You may be asking “how can I achieve this?”. Start off with a clarifying shampoo and conditioner to remove product build up. The Remi Cachet Hair Extension Shampoo and Conditioner is great to gently cleanse away impurities to leave both your natural hair and extensions feeling revitalised, hydrated and healthy. 

Then, once your hair is dried smooth using your favourite hairdryer, No.6 bond smoother and not forgetting heat protectant, use your Qute Wide Styler to straighten ultra fine sections of your hair. A top tip is to brush your hair with a boar bristle brush such as the Qute Smoothing Brush while straightening for the smoothest results. 

Finally, make sure you finish off with the correct products. The ColorWow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray is hyped about time and time again and creating this look is the reason why. Loved by Kim Kardashian, this will allow you to create the iconic high-shine Kardashian finish to your locks by combating any frizz and making your hair extra sleek. 

We just LOVE these super smooth and shiny looks we have been tagged in:

  
  
 

If you fancy this look as a more permanent style and not just a one night only thing, looking after your hair is extremely important. Rinsing your hair with cold water, always using a boar bristle brush and using a silk or satin pillowcase are just some of things you can do to make your hair permanently smooth. Check out our “Smooth Again:How To Deal With Dry Hair”  blog post that will help you with this.

 

A Bouncy Blowout

If smooth and shiny isn't your thing, a bouncy blowout may be your perfect match this Valentines. A style that is loved by the likes of  J-Lo, Zendaya and Emily Atack, this is also a look that will make you feel like a celebrity. 💁‍♀️

Even better, this look couldn’t be easier to achieve at home. Using the Remi Cachet Brush & Blow Gift Box this is your go-to-blow drying accessory pack that contains everything you need for a salon-worthy blow dry at home. Don’t forget the Color Wow Xtra Large Bombshell Volumizer that volumizes your locks and can hold a style with texture, body and voluminous results that last for days, perfect for this look. 

This style just screams glamour which makes it an ideal hairstyle to treat yourself to and celebrate the love you have for yourself this Valentines.

Water Waves

Or maybe Water Waves will be your chosen one this year? Treating yourself to this new trending hairstyle is perfect for the occasion to feel super elegant. 

Also styled by celebrities including Kylie Jenner, Lizzo and Shay Mitchell, this look is a new take on the “Waves” trend we have been seeing more and more frequently over the last year. The new “Water Waves” is where the top of the hair is flat to emphasise a “lived in” look and is perfect for any occasion. 

To create this look all you need is your Qute Wide Styler, Heat Protectant and Color Wow Pop & Lock and you’re good to go. 

The first step is to braid your damp hair with loose plaits. Next, once dry or when you wake up the next morning (if you are letting your hair dry overnight), gently run through each braid with a heat protectant and hair straightener before undoing the braids. Then, to break any tight curls into shiny waves apply Color Wow Pop & Lock

Here are some of our favourite looks we have been tagged in…
