A one-day visit to the hair salon should give you the box braid. But to achieve that bun, you can ask a hairstylist to elegantly style the bun for you. Or you can do it yourself. Here's how you can achieve the bun:

  • After considering the length and diameter of your box braid, you can gather it into a ponytail at the crown of your head.
  • Make sure it is secure and neat.
  • Wrap it around to make a bun.

You can make the bun as tight or loose as you prefer, and you may also loosen some strands around the face for a softer and more relaxed appearance. And would you want to add some flair? You can accessorize the bun with hair pins, or headbands to match your style. 

However, do not over-accessorize!! You don't want to look desperate. 

2. Braid Out Styles

Braid-out style is a gorgeous hairstyle of defined curls without heat. It depicts the wearer to be of a confident and positive nature. It's an intentional style, so you'll have to prepare a day before Valentine's. Despite the intentionality, preparation, and duration, you'll be happy, and comfortable afterward.

Braid Out Styles

Have you heard of people complaining that braid-out styles don't end up beautiful? Well, here's a little tip on how to get a braid-out style with well-defined curls and elegance.

  • Firstly, divide your hair into sections and apply your leave-in conditioner and moisturizer. 
  • Take each section one after the other and braid to the end. For tighter curls, create smaller braids. For looser waves, make larger braids.
  • Then, leave the braids for a while till your hair is dry. Once your hair is dried completely, carefully unravel the braids. Avoid being too rough and bumpy to keep the curls in shape and well-defined.

To add a little touch if needed, you can use a light-hold hairspray or styling cream to set the style and tame any frizz. And there you go, You're ready for Valentine's!

  • Divide your hair into two main sections. For the half-up section, gently part two sections from the middle and wrap it in a bun, secure it with a hair tie, and do the same with another section.
