Date night with
hubby/boyfriend? Worry not; you’re sorted W.R.T the hair department. This romantic
and uber-dainty hairstyle doesn’t need the skills of a pro hair stylist but
results in an outcome beautifully slick and sharp!
Comb your hair towards the
back, twist a section of it from one side and pin it to the center. Twist
another section of it from the other side and tuck it under the first layer.
It’s as easy as it can get! Trust me when I say that your man won’t be able to
take his eyes off you.
