4 Great First Date Hairstyles

Apr 21, 2013 1 Comment by

We’re always trying to work out what to wear and how to do our hair for that first date. Here are some great ideas on just what to do with your hair in readiness…

A first date can be rather important in establishing meaningful, long-lasting relationships. For one thing, you want to set the right tone, send the right messages, and define what and who you are. The hairstyle you wear can help you achieve these goals.

A good hairstylist can help you develop exactly the hairstyle you are looking for, provided that you communicate clearly and accurately. Try to be as detailed as possible to your hairdresser about the hairdo you want. If possible, bring a photograph of someone wearing the style that is similar to the one you want. A picture speaks a thousand words . . .

Here Are Four Great First Date Hairstyles?

The Casual Date Look

Jessica Biel pulls off this casual half updo look rather well. Ask you hairstylist to simply give you a wash, a simple trim, and some body-building treatment. When you’re done, simply tie back your freely-flowing, soft-to-the-touch, and shiny hair. In order to better “frame” your face, playfully fluff out your bangs.

Natural and Healthy Hair

The Natural and Healthy Look

Anthropologist Helen Fisher suggests that this look is especially alluring to men because they subconsciously associated it with fertility. The idea is to present a clean, bouncy, well-contoured and healthy head of hair.

In order to achieve that running fingers through your hair look, ask your hairstylist to take it easy on the hairspray. You might also request mousse to be applied unto damp hair in preparation for blow drying. Afterwards, the use of a wide-barrel curling iron may help create those attractive waves.

Soft Curls and Waves

Dianna Agron, with her soft curls and waves overlapping each other, pulls off this 70’s kind of look rather well. To help achieve this, ask your hairstylist to rub some mousse on your towel-dried hair, parting your hair lower toward the ears (as opposed to the center).

Next, blow-dry using a rounded large brush, starting from the bottom and working your way up the length of the hair (using curling tongs) in order to produce those free-flowing curls and waves.

The Hot and Sexy Hairstyle made famous by Farrah Fawcett

The Hot & Sexy Look

Farrah Fawcett made this hairstyle famous in the 80′s with the hottest selling poster of all times. The poster hung in millions of teenage boys bedrooms all across the globe. This style is often seen on posters and on Sports Illustrated special editions. The goal is free-flowing, hair begging for fingers to be caressingly run through it. In order to preserve freshness and softness, ask your hairstylist to take it easy on styling sprays, gels and creams.

Rather than hot rollers or a curling iron, use Velcro rollers in order to create those free-flowing “waves” that gently dangle under a whispery summer breeze.

You’ll want your first date to be a memorable one. As such, coordinate your hairstyle with your clothes, planned evening activities, and what you want to say to your date. Your hairdresser can help you achieve whatever look you’re going for—if you know what you want.
