Vamp Up Your Valentine's Day Date Hair

Have you spotted Kim Kardashian's blonde locks on TV? It seems like she has set the trend for a lighter look this Valentine's Day. Hair and makeup artist Francesca Ortale gave me two hair trends that are going to be hot on the biggest date night of the year.

Go Blonde! "Add some warm, golden blonde to you hair," she said. "Be bold, and be risky. This year is all about transitional color and having fun with your hair!"

To style, Francesca recommends: Larger, reverse waves. "These waves are not perfected, and have a perfect balance of not trying too hard."

Go Short! "Try a shorter, below the shoulder cut with subtle peek-a-boo highlights to frame the face."

Francesca Ortale has over 12 years experience in both hair and makeup. She has worked for both MAC Cosmetics and L'Oreal Professional, as well as doing the hair and makeup at several major fashion shows around the country.
