I love Valentine’s Day for several different reasons: lots of chocolate, pretty flowers and most importantly, love. But it’s not only meant for those in a relationship. A celebration is always in order, whether you’re staying in with your love or out on the town alongside friends. Today’s the day to spice up your hair and makeup routine and these videos help you achieve a flirty look.
If you have long hair like I do and are tired of limp locks, try a hair knot. It’s easy and elegant–and also helps to lengthen your neck. This video walks you through the steps to perfect the technique.
Soft, sexy waves look great on both short and long hair. And–surprise–you don’t need need a curling iron to get them. Use your flat iron for fresh take on curls.
My favorite part of getting ready is putting on makeup. Here, YouTube sensation Michelle Phan creates a playful look with pretty pinks. (I’ve personally gotten so many compliments on my makeup from emulating her style.)
Happy Valentine’s Day!

If you were to type in “makeup tutorial” on video-sharing website YouTube, you’ll find more than two millions results. It may seem like a long, endless list, but we’ve narrowed it down to the top five looks that we know you’ll love.
YouTube superstar Michelle Phan has over a million subscribers, a contract with Lancome and has even been featured in the New York Times. Phan may be more well known for her over-the-top looks (her most viewed videos are all based on Lady Gaga), but her “Professional Day to Glamorous Nights Out” look is doable for those of us who want to be taken more seriously.
