Whether you want to enhance your curls, dress up a ponytail, add shine or create voluminous waves, here are a few options for fabulous Valentine's Day hair.

1. Add Some Length If you are lacking length try SHE by SO.CAP.USA (Prices Vary depending on salon, To find a salon call 877-855-4247 or visit www.socapusa.com) clip-in hair extensions. They are 100% European-type human hair that is pre-bonded with 100% keratin tips to ensure a healthy, strong and long-lasting bond. Whether you want to choose a color to celebrate Valentine's Day like hot pink or to match your natural color, you will leave the salon with your ideal length.

2. Create Amanda Seyfried soft, voluminous waves crafted by Sebastian Professional Lead Stylist Thomas Dunkin:

1. Begin with dry hair and apply a generous amount of Sebastian Professional Shaper Zero Gravity to the lengths and brush through. Repeat this step a couple of times until the hair is textured enough for hot rollers.
2. Spritz the hair with Sebastian Professional Trilliant for thermal protection.
3.Take eight sections of hair at random and place large hot rollers at the root and wrap the rest of the section around it. (Starting at the root adds a wave and volume to the hair rather than simply creating curls which happens when rollers are first placed at the ends).
4. Once the rollers are cooled, remove them and run fingers through the hair for a polished yet casual effect. Spritz with Sebastian Professional Shaper. For product information visit www.sebastianprofessional.com.

3. Update A Plain Pony: It's inevitable, if you are having a bad hair often the easiest way to fix it is an up-do.
