Dark Romance \ Valentine’s Day Hair Tutorial with Kenra Professional

Dark Romance | Romantic Waves Tutorial with Kenra Professional

There’s nothing more romantic, or quintessentially Southern, than a voluminous, wavy hair style for Valentine’s Day! I’ve teamed up with Kenra Professionals (my favorite luxury hair-care brand!) to bring you a beautiful tutorial for achieving flawless hair this Valentine’s Day!

For this really soft, bouncy style we need nourished hair! I always start off with Kenra Moisturizing Shampoo and work Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner into the lower 2/3 of my hair.

Why I use these products first, to prep:
Kenra Moisturizing Shampoo:
– Replenishes moisture in dry, damaged hair
– Softens dry or damaged hair
– Improves manageability of coarse, textured hair
– Color-safe
Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner: 
– Replenishes moisture
– Improves elasticity & manageability
– Readily detangles & adds shine
– Perfect for naturally curly & coarse hair
– Color-safe

While my hair is still damp (before blow-drying) I add a dollop of Kenra Volume Mousse Extra 17 to my roots:
– Non-drying, non-flaking lightweight formulation
– Provides styling control without stiffness or stickiness
– Tames frizz & conditions
– Provides thermal protection up to 450ºF (232°C)

When my hair is about 80% dry I add Kenra Perfect Blowout 5 to prep my hair for the curling iron:
– Provides thermal protection up to 450ºF (232°C)
– Increases all over body & fullness
– Lightweight formula
– Enhances shine & tames frizz
– Ideal for blowout & styling control

After applying the Kenra Perfect Blowout 5 I finish drying my hair and completely brush through it. Next is my FAVORITE product: Kenra Volume Dry Shampoo!

– Instantly refreshes hair at the root
– Absorbs oils & impurities
– Translucent spray, leaving no white residue
– Builds the ideal foundation for styling

I shake the can and hold it about 10″ from my scalp, lifting my hair in sections and applying a generous amount!

After applying I massage gently into my hair and fluff with my fingers before sectioning off my hair to curl it.

I use a 1″ – 1.5″ ceramic barrel curling iron and take random sections, curling only the lower 2/3 of my hair all over my head. I brush through each curl after it’s cooled to give it that effortlessly messy, sexy look!

There’s no need to finish with a hair spray because all these Kenra products work together to give hair a perfect hold, while still looking relaxed and touchable!

What do you think? Would you wear your hair like this for a romantic Valentine’s Day date? To be honest, I’d totally do my hair like this JUST FOR ME! Or even for a fun night out with my girl friend’s! Sexy, wavy hair is always a good idea 😉

    II’m not familiar with the Kenra brand, but will definitely add it to my revolving Living Proof and Alterna arsenal. My hair is about your length and you’ve inspired me to go for the waves instead of my usual straight look

    I adore your eye make-up looks. and would love a tutorial on how you achieve them/ your favorite products. Also I am devoted and obsessed with red lipstick and would love a post on your favorites at all price points.

      Hello Heather! Thank you so much, sweet girl! I will absolutely try to get some eye makeup looks and a red lippie round-up on the blog soon! Those are great ideas! 🙂

Let me know what you think!
