The Steele Maiden: 10 Minute Hair Date Night Tutorial

It’s around this time every year that I get terribly bored with my hair. Winter weather leaves my fairly fine hair flat, static-y and generally lifeless and knit beanies feel like the only answer. But this year I was determined to combat the Winter hair blues. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I sought out the styling genius of my favorite hair guru Sarah Rappolt (if you’re in New York she’s at Wonderland Beauty Parlor and is the best.) to help me come up with an easy answer to date night hair. I wear my hair down 90% of the time so this feels somehow just dressy enough and like I put in loads of extra effort (even though you actually only took a few extra moments), but doesn’t feel too fussy or overdone.

The steps are above and all products used below. But her real secret? That texturing spray (I bought a giant bottle for myself before leaving the salon). Sarah says “Just when you think you’ve used too much.. use more.” The result is loaded with volume hair that still feels soft to the touch. Pair with an off the shoulder dress, statement earrings and you’ve got yourself a no fail date night look.
