Even though V-Day is a special occasion, you don't want to look like you spent a few hours with your blow dryer and straightening iron. Guys are most turned on by low-maintenance styles that feel natural. Try one of these and we bet your hair isn't the only thing he touches.Straight Up Sexy
Why Guys Love It: From an evolutionary perspective, guys subconsciously like hair that looks clean and healthy, like Anna Faris's blond locks. "Hair that's in top condition shows that you have a balanced diet and good health - signs of an ideal mate," says biological anthropologist Helen Fisher PhD. Try these fresh new hairstyles for long hair.
How to Get It: Work a silicone-based straightening serum through damp hair before blow-drying. Clip locks in 4-6 sections depending on how thick your hair is. Then tackle one at a time with a paddle brush and a blow-dryer equipped with a nozzle pointed straight down. Finish with a light shine spray.
Why Guys Love It: Jennifer Hudson shows off her neck and frames her face with this short bob. "Short and choppy, the new bob accentuates your cheekbones and eyes," says celeb stylist Oscar Blandi.
How to Get It: Start with a protective styling spray to maintain shine like Got2b Guardian Angel Protect N' Blow Out Lotion and Gloss Finish, $6. Then, divide hair into two-inch sections and blow-dry straight. Finish by using a flat-iron to flip out your ends slightly.
Why Guys Love It: "Confident chicks don't need to hide behind long hair," says salon owner Roy Teeluck. Plus, soft, face-framing bangs come across as supersensual. Ginnifer Goodwin's peekaboo fringe is flirty and mischievous. Find out if this super-sexy cut is right for you with our ultimate hair makeover tool.
How to Get It: Use a lightweight smoothing styler and a natural bristle brush to blow-dry hair smooth and forward. For control, spread a wax-based pomade in your palms, then pat it from roots to ends. Tuck extralong pieces behind your ear with a bobby pin.
Why Guys Love It: Nikki Reed's bun looks simple and elegant yet still touchable. The hair that falls into her face prevents the updo from looking too severe. "Men couldn't care less if your strands are perfectly styled and neat. In fact, he might like you more with some wildness or bedhead, since it shows you're carefree and relaxed," says Fisher.
How to Get It: Make a low side ponytail, leaving a few pieces loose around your face. Twist the length of your ponytail, and wrap it into a figure-eight shape - smoosh it up against your scalp, and tuck the ends into the loop. Insert a few hairpins or tiny barrettes to lock it all in place. Finish with a mist of light-weight hair spray that'll give you extra hold minus any stickiness, like Paul Mitchell Worked Up, $15.
