(am i the only one who wears fur & jewels on a first date???)
There comes a time after meeting a guy that the question of hair becomes inevitable. Whether it’s dealing with “morning after” hair or if you’re like me, explaining the mystery of why you hair changes like your shoes 🙂 Here are a few Hairnista tips to make your dating life work with and not against your hair.
1. The Overnight Visit
Now sometimes this is planned, but most of the time it is um shall we say, kind of impromptu. I recommend always keeping a couple of covered elastic hair bands and bobby pins in your purse. A low ponytail or a cute messy bun can make your morning after look much more pulled together. (dark sunglasses also help lol)
Sorry to break it to you loves, but falls and half-wigs are single girl territory. They are not secure enough for anything more than a quick peck hello/goodbye, and the stray hand caressing your hair can end up with you mortified as your date holds your wig in his hand. Save these for a girl’s night out…not one with the hot guy you’ve been dying to date.
These are the way to go! If you’re going on an outdoorsy date (hiking, tennis, biking) you can make a cute ponytail. Intimate dinner? You’ll have an extra boost of confidence that only takes minutes to achieve. Here’s a quick tutorial of my curly clip-ins from curlsistas.com. WATCH!
4. Protective Styles
Going on an exotic island vacation? A protective style is a must for a no muss no fuss adventure. Your time is meant to be frolicking on the beach, sipping fruity drinks while your beau rubs suntan lotion on your pretty shoulders…not stuck in your hotel suite stressing over your hair. Try a sew-in with curly/wavy locks, box braids, or faux locks in a sexy length (20″ or longer is a must!) and I guarantee you’ll have him under your spell.

Dating should be fun, and your hair should be an addition to the fun, not a distraction. What are some of your favorite dating hair tips? Let me know below!
