Hairstyles for a First DateFirst date jitters? Don't worry, he will be nervous too and perhaps try on a few outfits, practice his smile and hairstyle in front of his mirror. First dates are all about first impressions and you want to leave the best one. Not just that, you want to wow him! And you will, if you, first of all, relax and then follow some of the style advice that we have gathered here.
Show the real you and do not pretend or try to present yourself in a way that you assume he might like. Usually, that does not work in the long run. No matter if your hair is long or short, spunky or conservative, find a hairstyle that best expresses who you are and keep it simple, natural and touchable. Don't try too hard to impress anyone, that just looks desperate.
Blue Jeans or Little Black Dress
The right hairstyle for your special rendezvous depends definitely on the nature of the date. Are you heading out for dinner and a movie, to the opening of an art show, a bike tour or a baseball game? We'll give you ideas for casual and dressed up styles for short and long hair and there are even hairstyles that can go along with anything! But always keep in mind that less is more.
First Date Styles for Short Hair
Pixie cuts are the top runners of favorite looks on women, that men love. Pixies are uncomplicated, feisty, touchable and sexy at the same time. They can also be easily dressed up or down.
For a casual look just ruffle your clean hair, perhaps push the sides back with just a dab of product and style the top hair in different directions. This gives the pixie much texture and dynamic. A diagonal fringe will bring more attention to your eyes. Make sure that you don't use a gel that turns very stiff or hard when it is dry. Rather go for a light mousse and a mist of spray. This kind of hairstyle goes with all outfits and looks ravishing in all surroundings. But if you want to boost the effect, add a little sparkly hairpin on one side.
Short bobs should just be left as they are in their elegant, sophisticated simplicity. Perhaps give the parts along your cheeks a little curve into your face for more spice and finesse. Use a smoothing serum to avoid rebel hairs or static.
Short hair has a tendency to look sporty. If you want to soften the look, use a round brush when blow drying to flip the ends of the hair up and out for a fun, wispy look. A few touches with a curling iron to add sexy little curves and texture around the edges is also a great touch, subtle but with much impact.
First Date Styles for Long Hair
Up or down is the big question. If in doubt, keep them down. Men love nothing more than beautiful long and free flowing hair that makes them want to run their hands through. The appeal of long hair cannot be underestimated, it still is a strong symbol of femininity and works on a very deep level in your beau's psyche.
For the „pretty girl next door“ look go for a semi up-do! This means that you take the section of hair that is in front of your ears and style it to the back, where you then use a barrette or clip to hold it in place. A couple of thin strands look nice when left out to play along your face.
