Love is in the hair with Valentine’s Day around the corner, and Design Essentials wanted to send some hair love your way with a dose of inspo!
We called on some beloved curly-chick influencers to create quick, quarantine-friendly looks using products by Design Essentials. All styles are fit for a romantic evening (or some Galentine’s Day fun with your best girlfriends). Check it out!
Style #1: Natural Valentine’s Day Curls
This one’s for all our natural curlfriends out there with 3A-4C hair. Ideal for when you want fresh curls quick and in a hurry, you can rock this hairstyle well after V-Day.
Style #2: Frizz-Free Wash & Go
Want to master the wash and go like a pro? Let's step into wavy wonderland and get into this look. To duplicate this hairstyle on 2A-C hair, we recommend using the Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Quick Curls Kit to cleanse, condition, and prep your hair. For a frizz-free finished look, style your waves with the Anti-Frizz Curl Defining Gel and finish it off with the Anti-Frizz & Moisturizing Finishing Spray.
Style #3: Silk Press & Romantic Curls
Nothing says “romance” like romantic curls! In this tutorial, @HeyCurlie shows you how to produce silky-smooth tresses that are pressed to perfection.
With help from the Agave & Lavender Blow-Dry & Silk Press Collection, she creates curls so soft that your fingers can run through them like butter. It's the perfect look for you if you have 1A-4C hair. You'll easily achieve the perfect salon silk press at home with this tutorial.
Style #4: Winter-Ready Curls
Stiff where? If you want pillow-soft curls during the driest season of the year, your hair needs the ultimate moisture and curl definition. To achieve winter-ready curls for Valentine's Day, wash your hair with lukewarm water and detangling shampoo. You'll then want to deep condition your hair to prep it for styling. With the Almond &Avocado Quick Curls Kit, you can get this regimen down in no time. Style curls with flexi-rods for extra-added volume.
Style #5: The Twist & Curl
Have you ever seen a twist and curl so fly that it made you want to twist and shout? When you watch Harris Janae’s hair tutorial on the Design Essentials YouTube channel, it’ll have you doing just that. For best results, this go-to look for 4A-C coily queens requires the ultimate level of moisture and shine. Harris Janae came through and checked both boxes by using the Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Honey Curl Forming Custard.
