We love you! There, we’ve said it, the secret admirer is out. And Valentine’s Day is the perfect day for us to spoil you! Our friends at VO5 agreed, and put together two fantastic hampers of hair products to help you create the perfect hairstyle for your Valentine’s celebration with that someone special.
We’ve borrowed VO5’s lead stylist, Luna, to share some tips with us on creating a delicious ‘do:
Gwen Stefani’s slicked-back look
Step 1: Create a deep side parting with a comb.
Step 2: Apply VO5 Smoothly Does It Straightening Balm to help protect your hair and then flat iron straight, flipping out the ends slightly.
Step 3: Tuck hair – on the same side as your parting – behind the ear and pin.
Step 4: Spray with VO5 Styling Mega Hold Pump Hairspray to tame pesky flyaways and hold your stunning style all day.
Puffed up locks a la Emma Stone
Step 1: After shampooing and conditioning with VO5’s Plump Me Up range, allow your hair to dry naturally or blow dry.
Step 2: Section off a horseshoe shape from temple to temple and add a good dollup of VO5’s Plump Me Up Weightless Mousse to help you achieve some height.
Step 3: Using a fine-toothed comb, lightly “bump” the back section forward to create volume. Smooth away from your face.
Step 4: Brush hair back into a high ponytail and secure with a hair elastic.
Step 5: Use a large curling iron to curl just the ends of the ponytail, now secure your hair with pins. Spritz with VO5’s Miracle Mist to set the look.
The short zig zag pixie, Mia Wasikowska style
Step 1: Apply Miracle Concentrate from VO5 and blow dry with a round brush. This will add volume and shine.
Step 2: Use a comb to create a large Z-shaped parting diagonally across the crown of your head.
Step 3: Tuck the hair on the same side as the parting behind the ear and apply a final spritz of VO5’s Give Me Texture Tousled Style spray. Viola! You’re good to go.
All you have to do to win a hair pamper hamper, valued at R500 each, is like the VO5 and SA Home Owner Facebook pages, tell us what you are planning for Valentine’s Day, and what your favourite VO5 product is! Then SA Home Owner and VO5 will share the love with two lucky winners!
