Forget blowouts or pared back buns: some of the most romantic date night hair right now is in the naturalista space pairing simple styling elements with our glorious manes = hair gold. We love feminine hairstyles and working with natural hair to achieve flawless looks has become ever easier with the ‘edutainment’ by African beauty bloggers worldwide.

Ask beauty blogger and BellaStylista Temitope Adesina – We spotted quite a few hairstyle options on her Instagram we thought would be just perfect for date night inspiration.

From an unbridled curly mane to manipulating her long curly lengths wrapped into gorgeous styles—replete with whimsical strands and romantic texture for swoon worthy looks.

The key is really making your hair, makeup and outfit work together to achieve a full look. What vibe are you going for on the date? What kind of activity is it? Casual but minimal, natural and romantic, or sexy and mysterious? Here are some ideas for your next date night.

Glamorous Curls

Superb and seductive , this hairstyle is a date night classic. Make like Temi and work with bendy rollers and apply just the right amount of product for shine plus control.

Swept To The Side

This look is a variation of the ‘Glam Curls’ look, Naturally Temi’s well-tended mane basically translates a classic beauty hairstyle into a natural contemporary look. Turn a tried-and-true hairstyle into a major beauty moment with Temi’s mini tutorial. Brushed to the side with slightly tighter curls,  let your hair take on a life of its own.

Braided Top Bun

This hairstyle is almost bridal but it ultimately depends on your outfit, it works for both formal and casual looks. This style will emphasise your neck and shoulders in an off-shoulder cocktail dress for example, or looks great even with denim and a white shirt highlighting your natural beauty and gracefulness.

Rockabilly Faux Hawk

Brushed upwards and parted with almost geometric precision, this style is  fittingly high and generally not for the faint hearted. A very modern take on a classic updo, this faux hawk also has a a slightly vintage feel due to the quiff/pouf right at the front.

How do you feel about these looks? Would you rock it or nah?
