Valentines Day Hairdos by Rahua

V-Day is around the corner, and whether you’re painting the town red or having a quiet one indoors with your man, a stylish hairdo can take the night from ordinary to fantabulous.

Too late for a salon booking? Fret not, with quality hair products from Rahua and a few tricks up your sleeves, you can achieve Cupid-approved stylish locks right in the comfort of your own home.

Rahua Sleek & Straight

Sleek & Straight

Sleek, straight hair never goes out of style. It’s chic, its sophisticated, and looks spot-on with that LBD and super-high heels.

Start off by washing your mane with Rahua Shampoo and Conditioner, guaranteed to give you lustrous shiney hair.

Then add a dime sized amount of the Rahua Finishing Treatment to damp hair, this repairs even the most damaged strands from first use – prevents hair from splitting during styling, blow-drying, hot ironing and combing leaving a beautifully glossy yet incredibly weightless finish.

Leave hair to air-dry, and when it is 90% done, dry it out completely using a hair dryer and paddle brush.

Smooth out the look with a straightening iron if needed, and run a pea-sized amount of Rahua Hair Wax through your strands to complete the look.

Once you have left your hair to 90% naturally dry, finish it off using a hair dryer and paddle brush. Then perfect your look using either a straightening iron if required. Once you are happy with the look, finish off with a pea sized amount of Rahua Hair Wax and run it through your hair to complete the look.

Tousled Waves

Who said tousled hair is just for the beach? Bouncy, playful curls are very Cupid-like and perfect for Valentines Day.

Embrace your naturally wavy or curly hair, and start by washing it with Rahua Voluminous Shampoo and Conditioner.

Blow-dry till half dry, and spritz on some Rahua Volumising Spray.

Continue drying the hair, combing in your fingers to provide volume and texture. Touch up your curls using a wand or curling tong. Remember, the smaller the section of hair, the tighter the curl.

Place a little Rahua Hair Wax in your hand and flip your head over, run your fingers through your hair for looser waves or scrunch your curls for a tighter, curlier look. Flip it back and finish off your look with hairspray.

Rahua_Messy UpdoThe Messy Up-do

Messy can be sexy, and this messy up-do for V-day proves just that.

This style works best for shoulder-length to long hair that is straight, wavy or curly.

Messy Updo’s are life-savers on a bad hair day and on those days when you are running late. With just a few minutes, you can achieve this soft Valentine’s Day updo. The slightly messy bun adds a soft chic look to your overall attire.

To create a messy updo, begin by washing your hair with Rahua Voluminous Shampoo and Conditioner.

Then spray the Rahua Volumising Spray to the root and length of your hair, this versatile natural volumiser will revitalise the scalp whilst holding hair in place. Hair will be left soft, with a flexible hold that has shape memory and the volumising effects will provide noticeably thicker and healthier looking hair.

Allow your hair to dry naturally for added texture. Once dry, if your hair is straight, add curls to the length of your hair using a wand / curling tong.

Take a small amount of the Rahua Hair Wax and run it through the hair to offer extra control, manageability and ultimate staying power without product build-up.

Fix your hair into a ponytail and take sections of your hair, pinning around your hair tie with bobby pins. Remember, this need not look too ‘perfect’, it is a romantic messy up-do after all.

The Rahua range can be found in Harvey Nichols, Plethora Hair Lab, and Rahua’s UAE flagship salon Posh by Feryal at The Burj al Arab. Read more on this wonderful hair-care range in my earlier post.
