Loreal Paris BMAG Article 4 Easy Date Night Hairstyle Ideas D

Whether it’s your first date, second date, or hundredth date, it’s natural to want to wow your special someone with the perfect beauty look. You’ve picked out your outfit and you’re confident that your go-to cat eye will do the trick; but what about your hair? From adding volume to braided accents for the perfect date-night bun or slicked back updo, we’ve got you covered with a few of our favorite easy hairstyles to rock on date night. 

Date Night Hairstyle #1: VA-VA-VOOM VOLUME

If time is of the essence for your date night hairstyle, don’t stress: This hairstyle, which is nothing short of classically chic, can be completed in a matter of minutes. All you need is some hair mousse, a blow-dryer, and 10 minutes to mold your hair to cascade down your shoulders in big beautiful waves.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Volume Inject Mousse

Ceramic brush

Curling iron

Wide-tooth comb

Hair spray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Apply hair mousse. Evenly distribute a dollop of hair mousse to your roots while hair is damp. 

Step 2: Blow-dry hair. Dry your hair about 80 percent of the way before focusing on specific sections. 

Step 3: Use a round brush. In 2-inch sections, wrap hair around a round ceramic brush to help create dimension from the roots. Repeat for your entire head of hair until completely dry. 

Step 4: Add a light wave. To really rock this look and channel your inner runway model, grab a curling iron or wand and wrap 1-inch sections of your hair around the wand—always curling away from your face—from the mid-shafts to the ends.

Step 5: Brush through. Once your curls are cooled, brush through them with a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to separate the curls. This step helps to create that major va-va-voom volume you’re after!

Step 6: Spray to set. Once you’re happy with your date night hairstyle, reach for a light-hold hair spray and give your locks a spritz to set your style.  

Date Night Hairstyle #2: WAVY BRAIDED PONYTAIL

While a plain ponytail might be an easy hairstyle that’s a little too laidback for date night, this done-up ‘do will add the perfect touch to complete your look. Think: boho chic vibes all night long.

What you’ll need:

Hair elastic

Bobby pin

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Lock It Weather Control Hairspray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Make a ponytail. Gather your strands into a high ponytail.

Step 2: Conceal your hair tie. Gather a small piece of hair from underneath your ponytail to wrap around the base in an effort to hide the elastic. You can either tuck the end of the hair into the underside of the ponytail or use a bobby pin to secure it in place. 

Step 3: Create braids. Select a small portion of hair on each side of your pony to create your accent fishtail braids. To give your braids oomph, gently tug on each of the sections, working your way to the top of the braid.

Step 4: Curl your pony. Use a curling iron to curl the non-braided hair in your ponytail for a super-feminine, yet sultry touch. 

Step 5: Seal your look. Help ensure that your date night hairstyle stays put all night long with a spritz of hair spray.


If you’re looking for a slightly more intricate date night hairstyle, this is the one for you! With a combo of crown braids, fishtails, and buns, this blogger-worthy look will stop everyone in their tracks. What’s more, since the final hairstyle comprises three individual styles, you can start your day with one style and adjust accordingly for whatever the day has in store. Talk about versatile!

What you’ll need:

Hair mousse

Long-tail comb

Clear mini elastics

Bobby pins

L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1:  Apply hair mousse. Before you begin weaving this look, you’ll want to add some lift to your roots. Whether you want to blow-dry your hair or let it air dry, simply grab a can of hair mousse and get to work. After applying hair mousse, let your hair air dry before moving on to the next step in this easy hairstyle tutorial.

Step 2: Section your hair. Using a long-tail comb, separate the front face-framing layers of hair to create a small braid on each side of your head.  Braid each section as close to the end as possible and secure with a clear mini elastic. 

Step 3: Perk up your braids. To create a thicker-looking braid, gently tug apart the weave of your braid starting at the bottom, where it’s tightest, and work your way to the top. 

Step 4: Crisscross your braids. Wrap your braids behind your head and pin them in place over top of one another. 

Step 5: Create your crown. After pinning your crisscrossed braids, simply keep wrapping each side of the braid up underneath along the sides of your head and pin them in place with bobby pins that match your hair color. If you are pleased with this half-crown look, you can stop here. Want more drama? Keep going! 

Step 6: Add a French braid. To continue the hairstyle, start weaving a French braid from behind one ear, picking up loose pieces of hair as you work your way across to the opposite shoulder. Once you’ve French braided as far as you can, continue in a traditional braid down your shoulder and secure with a clear elastic. Again, you could stop here, or you could keep going for even more jaw-dropping twists to this already gorgeous style.  

Step 7: Create an updo. As the final possible look with this ever-changing style, simply swoop your French braid back towards the other shoulder and pin in place with as many bobby pins as it takes to feel secure. 

Step 8: Help make it last. For long lasting hold and shine use an extra-strong hold hair spray. And just like that your date night hairstyle is ready to slay.

Date Night Hairstyle #4: VOLUMINOUS HALF-UP BUN

As one of the season’s hottest easy hairstyles, it’s no wonder this super-simple look is a must-try from beauty bloggers near and far. Perfect for freshly washed hair or day-old hair, this is a hairstyle you’ll definitely want to incorporate into your hair repertoire.

What you’ll need:

Hair mousse


Hair tie

Bobby pins

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High-Lift Creation Spray 

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Use hair mousse. Start this easy hairstyle by applying a little hair mousse. Massage a dollop of hair mousse into the roots at your crown for some lift. 

Step 2: Blow-dry hair. Focus your blow-dryer downwards towards the roots and the crown of your head to help accentuate the natural volume of your locks. If your hair needs a little help, use a round ceramic brush to help style your hair with even more enviable volume. 

Step 3: Make your half-up bun. Using the top section of hair, mold a loose bun into place at the crown of your head with the use of a hair tie and a few bobby pins.

Step 4: Boost your locks. To finish this easy hairstyle, lift and spray sections of hair at the roots and down the shaft with a hair spray.
