Valentine’s Day provides the perfect opportunity to dress up, so whether you’re in the midst of a new romance, settling in with a long-term love, or happily flying solo, spend this February 14th with absolutely flawless hair. 

Whatever the situation, we’ve got your hair needs covered this Valentine’s Day. Here are some handy tips and tricks that you can use to put together a great hairstyle for your Valentine’s evening.

Romantic Updos for Any Lenght

Are you a fan of romantic updos and elegant chignons, buns, and ponytails of the sort? Then this section is for you - explore the gorgeous hairstyles that will help you look elegant and sophisticated whilst also keeping your hair away from your face.

Messy Bun 

Nothing like a classy, artsy messy bun – ask Hailey Bieber, since she made it her hairstyle of choice for her wedding. Often overlooked as a stay-at-home look, this hairstyle rapidly gained fame over social media with the raging comeback of grunge fashion – and guess what? It’s safe to say it stole a few hearts on the way. Effortlessly romantic and laid-back, the messy bun is now to be considered a timeless classic. If you’re lacking the necessary volume and length to step it up, add a few clip in hair extensions to your mane. Seamless hair extensions seem to be the perfect tool to achieve a perfect blend without visible seams and obvious tracks popping out of your hairdo, allowing you to look sublimely classy but never pretentious. Want to make it a little more precious? Embellished bobby pins or a cute scrunchie matching with your outfit will be the perfect addition to complete the look.

 The Ponytail

A slick ponytail is the perfect way to bring attention to your face whilst still showing off the fact your hair looks amazing. There are so many options to enhance your hair, so this hairstyle works even if you naturally have wispy and thin hair.

Use an accessory such as the Wrap Around Ponytail hair extensions to recreate this magical look, even if your hair is lacking the necessary length and/or thickness!

The Fishtail

If you’ve never experimented with the fishtail braided hairstyle, now is the time. This classic look has been popular for years because it can be switched up and changed around in so many different ways, and can easily be taken from day date to date night without too much effort. The key to getting it right, however, is length. So, you do need to either have quite long locks or use hair extensions.

As a short cut you can also add thickness and weight to your hair very quickly with One Piece Hair Extensions, these are often used as volumisers to create new hair styles ultra fast!

How will you be wearing your hair for Valentine’s Day? We would love to see your styles and hear what you’re planning to do with your extensions for date night. Don’t forget to hashtag #WearCliphair on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to show off your looks.

Heart Bun

This lovely half-up, half-down hairstyle leaves nothing to chance and goes straight to the point: after all, heart-shaped anything is the cutesy key to set the mood for Valentine’s day. Flirty and romantic, this lovely hairdo can be recreated with the help of clip in hair extensions so that you won’t lose any volume around the sides of your face, and can also be a clever way to add precious inches to your mane. No matter what your hair colour is, this subtle detail on the back of your head will make sure everyone knows you’re celebrating the love festivity in style. 

Y2K Top Knot 

This is the lovechild between a classic top knot and the spiky bun, also known as the model-off-duty bun. Rocked by Canadian sweetheart Shay Mitchell herself with a pair of romantic tendrils left out to accentuate her gorgeous features, this simple and youthful hairdo leaves a lot of room for fancy jewellery around your neck or a pair of statement earrings. When adding thickness and length to play around with this glamorous, playful updo, add a few clip in  extensions around your crown to step up pink hair extensions to add flirty flashes of colour in your natural hair!

Fierce Rope Braid

Who said that Valentine’s day has to look all gooey and fuzzy? Make sure everybody knows that nobody can mess with your heart with this elegant but fierce hairstyle! The rope braid isn’t just a certified Instagram baddie hairstyle, it’s also a trendy hairdo to keep your hair away from your face for any occasion, leaving you free to experiment with a particular makeup style or to experiment with themed accessories such as an important necklace. Fairly easy to recreate and incredibly fashionable, this hairstyle has been seen on celebrities and influencers alike, rapidly taking over platforms such as TikTok and Instagram. In case your natural hair isn’t long and/or thick enough, you can easily make it yours with the aid of clip in ponytail hair extensions.

Bun With a Bump

This flirty hairstyle is a chic and relaxed way to have your hair back while maintaining some volume. It adds structure and height to your hair so you can control just how classic, glamorous or extravagant you want your look to be.

This style allows you get a fuller head of hair without all the extra work. Besides, what better time to try something new and fun with your hair?


The key to this look is all in the back combing. Apply all of your hair extensions, avoiding the top area of your head, particularly your crown area. Then sprinkle the crown area with a texturising powder before taking a comb and lightly back combing for height. Once you have back combed to the desired height, brush over a thin layer of hair to hide the messy back combed part. Then gather your hair at the nape of your neck and either style in a messy bun or use a hair doughnut for a more polished look.

French Twist 

Let’s be honest: it doesn’t get classier than a messy French twist. Is your Valentine’s Day going to be spent in a fancy venue? Then look no further than the French twist as your hairstyle of choice. Also known as the French roll, this retro-esque hairdo looks sophisticated without even trying – and guess what? It’s also fairly easy to recreate! Aimed for long-haired individuals, if your tresses are not quite there yet you can always boost your length with a subtle addition such as tape hair extensions. Leaving a few tendrils out will give you an effortlessly classy and artsy vibe that is unmatched on a romantic date; you can choose to add some movement and texture here and there with a texturising spray, or a curling wand to turn your tendrils into glossy, flirty ringlets to frame your face.

High Ponytail 

Ponytails are a great hairstyle for a number of reasons: they are trendy, they are comfortable, they keep your hair away from your face, they are fashionable, they can be styled in different ways, and most importantly… You don’t need long hair to wear one. How? Well, let me tell you a secret: clip in ponytail hair extensions! Almost every celebrity wearing an iconic ponytail that you may have spotted on social media is wearing one. From Ariana Grande to Kim Kardashian, the secret to slay a high ponytail is to get yourself the right ponytail hair extension first. After that, you can wear it high and mighty, sleek, curly, braided, twisted… The world is your oyster! If you have baby hairs, this is the perfect occasion to lay your edges in style and create a gorgeous, romantic hairstyle that will make an impact. And yes, you can also style your baby hairs to make a heart shape…

Crown Braid

Also known as the milkmaid braid, this lovely hairstyle embellishes your hairdo like a natural crown – setting the standards right for your date, and letting them know you should be treated like the queen you are! Not many have been blessed with the natural length and thickness necessary to recreate this hairstyle, but don’t worry: you can always use strategically placed clip in hair extensions to make it yours.

Alternatively, if you have a set of old hair extensions that don’t quite cut it anymore due to dryness and wear, you can still repurpose them into crown braid hair extensions to pop on and off as you please. Characterised by a boho-chic vibe, this hairstyle is guaranteed to bring you all the authentic feeling of a romantic hairdo without trying too hard with funky accessories that you may not feel yours.

Hair Bow

Made popular by old school Lady Gaga and subsequently recreated by many celebrities, the hair bow is a playful and flirty look that works wonders on any length, from shoulder-long hair to medium and waist-long tresses. Once again, clip ins are a lifesaver when it comes to adding hair to your mane to bring fancy hairstyles and editorial looks to life.

With a little practice, you’ll find out that the hair bow isn’t impossibly hard to recreate but delivers a great deal of glamour! You can place it on top of your hair for a whimsical finish, on the back of your head for a more subtle yet super-romantic look, or even on a side to keep things playful and youthful. This hairstyle works wonders with any shade, but due to its subtle nature is particularly indicated for those that wear their hair in a lighter colour, such as blondes, light brunettes and fair shades of red.

Mini Retro Ponytail 

Made famous by trendsetter and supermodel Bella Hadid, the retro ponytail is deeply rooted in the 90s and early 00s, where deep side parts and funky hair accessories were on the daily agenda. Bella took this popular look and made it popular with a contemporary twist, turning it into a sleek and sculpted look with a shiny finish.

You can easily achieve it with mini wrap around ponytail hair extensions. If you’re feeling like going deeper on the Y2K side, you can add bedazzled hair barrettes on a side to give it a whimsical, youthful vibe. Classic hoops on your ears complete the look for a peppy, flirty outfit. Just leave your eyebrows alone! (or alternatively, feel free to try and get that skinny brows look safely; find out more in our dedicated blog: Everything You Need To Know About The Thin Eyebrows Comeback.)

Glamorous Waves and Curls for Shine

Find your ideal look among a collection of wavy, curly, and gently tousled hairstyles that will compliment your natural texture - or add body, movement, and depth to your usually straight tresses.

Soft Waves 

If a bouncy curly blowout isn’t your cup of tea and poker straight hair is too much of an everyday thing for you, then keep an eye out for soft waves. You can easily achieve this hairstyle with a flat iron, and strategically place the texture wherever you need it in order to create a slightly messy hairdo.

Gently tousled hair is very trendy, giving that “I just woke up like this” kind of vibe that many are looking to achieve these days, perhaps due to the explosion in popularity of all-natural looks that keep things classy and minimalistic – but without ever missing out on being stylish. This type of hairstyle works wonders on shoulder length hair, but hair extensions will surely give it a kick. Make sure you keep it modern and fashionable with a middle part, perhaps accompanied by glamorous curtain bangs to frame your face.

Mermaid Waves

For a soft, sultry, and sophisticated look, beach waves are among some of the most flattering hairstyles for most people. They allow you to add an instant but soft glamour with minimal effort. The romantic, gorgeous textured waves look amazing, natural and are quick and easy to create.

Leave your hair in plaits overnight and also plait your own hair – remember to only do it loosely, you don’t want a tight crimped look. In the morning, take the plait out, and voila - a relaxed wavy look at your fingertips. You can always tease the roots to add volume and give yourself that sexy bedhead look.

You can also look into boosting this hairstyle with clip ins such as Double Weft hair extensions for a natural, yet plump finish, or Seamless hair extensions for glamorous results. 

Curly Explosion

Naturally textured hair going wild on date night? Yes please! Get your curls ready to top your features like a crown with the right prep ritual: start with hair plopping, then add your favourite nourishing curling cream, and diffuse like there’s no tomorrow. Need some extra hold? Add a spritz of hairspray when shaping your curls around your brush (or finger). The bigger the curls, the better. Need to pump things up? Explore our curly hair extensions range to find your perfect match!

Hollywood Waves

Hollywood waves, often deemed as one of the most elegant and sophisticated timeless classics of curly and wavy hairstyles, have been a popular choice for many different special occasions. If you're particularly keen on keeping your hair down but don't want to miss out on bounce, volume, and texture, this glamorous hairdo is the perfect choice! Characterized by their uniform and textured look, the ever-popular Hollywood waves can evoke a starlet vibe!

Make your Hollywood waves thicker and bouncier by incorporating Remy hair extensions to achieve undefeated volume and glamour. Then, you can customise your look with loose or tighter, crimped waves, paired with a deep side part for a vintage flair.

Valentine's Hairstyles: Long And Sleek 

Flaunting your length doesn't need to involve elaborate blowouts and attention-seeking accessories at all - sometimes, less is more. That is the case of stunning long hairstyles that flow free in all their length and beauty! Let's see some together.

Long And Sleek Hair

Long-haired dolls, where you at? Well, hear me out: anyone can step in the category with the right type of hair extensions on. Tape in hair extensions are one of the most versatile options for a long lasting, flowy makeover to wear down – achieving incredible length and volume that will sublimely blend in with your natural hair.

Long and sleek hair is sultry, enticing and timelessly sensual. If you want to make the most of your long hair, why not wear it poker straight in the fashion of glass hair? This trend exploded on TikTok last year thanks to Kim Kardashian and celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton, and since then it’s been an extremely popular ‘do that many figures in Hollywood have copied on different occasions. Want to go extra? Clip in bangs will keep the focus on your eyes, in case you wanted to go full seductress with a mysterious smokey-eyes look.

Over the Shoulder Hair

There are two reasons why over the shoulder hair is a great look for Valentine’s Day – you can tastefully show off a little skin – your clavicle, shoulder or décolletage.

This look is easy to achieve and doesn’t have to look perfect. It also doesn’t require constant readjusting throughout the night, so you’re free to relax as you please!

Danielle's look was realised by @hairbyjaayyy using 26" Ultra Volume hair extensions.

Romantic Hair Barrettes

If you truly can't resist the idea of adding a hair accessory here and there, then opt for simple yet embellishing additions such as a sparkly hair barrette, or diamante stick-on hair gems. Pearl-encrusted hair clips are a staple in Y2K looks for example, so if that's your aesthetic, feel free to experiment with bedazzling hair accessories to express yourself and steal the spotlight everywhere you go!

Pro Tips & Tricks for Flawless Finish

The secret to the perfect hairstyle that will hold into place all day long? Let's see the key points together.

Keep your hair and hair extensions moisturised. Yes, at all times! Dry hair won't hold styling as much, not to mention how it can lead to breakage, split ends, and pesky flyaways. Make sure you always wash your added tresses with a specific moisturising shampoo for hair extensions. Then, either before or after styling, you can spritz some Cliphair Moisture Lock Spray for hair, keeping that hydration on point.

Always use heat protection. Never forget to use a generous amount of heat protection spray on your hair before using a blowdryer, hair straightener, curling wand, or any other heat-based styling tool. 

Keep a brush with you. If you ever find yourself in a position where you'll need a touch up, keeping your essentials in your purse - such as a detangling hair brush, can be a real life saver that you'll thank yourself for.

Use hairspray for stronger, long-lasting hold. If you're going for a curly hairstyle, waves, or anything else that needs to stay put for hours, a lightweight mist of hairspray can go a long way. The same goes for hair pomades and gel, useful in the case of slicked-back hairstyles and ponytails.

Create Your Perfect Valentine's Look

Get your checklist ready, put on your perfect outfit, and start with your hair: remember, in order to make the most out of your tresses and get that Valentine-approved hairstyle, all you'll need to do is keeping your hair healthy and moisturised (might be a good idea doing a deep conditioning hair mask), using heat protection, picking the right human hair extensions, styling correctly, using the right amount of hairspray for hold, and finishing with a spritz of Moisture Lock Shine Spray for hair. Voila!
