We asked our favourite hair gurus at Charles Worthington to reveal their essential dos for Valentine's Day. Stylist-to-the-stars and creative manager Marc Trinder recommends three looks he created with Charles Worthington for the Erdem S/S12 catwalk. From girly and pretty to downright dreamy, these gorgeous styles will have you ahead of the trends and make you irresistible to the opposite sex, we promise... HALO BRAID A beautifully feminine up-do with a classic French plait, started from the nape of the neck, plaited from ear to ear and continued around the head in a clockwise circular motion. So pretty, it must be worn with a gorgeously girly dress and pastel lips.

TOUSLE TAIL A sultry, seductive do with a fishtail plait pulled out at the sides to look slightly untidy and imperfect. It’s a style that is less structured and perfect, and much more natural and edgy. Bedhead gone beautiful, we say...

HIGH PONY This updo exudes youthful sexiness. Hair should be teased at the side of the face to give a flyaway, easy feel for a look of effortless elegance. It’s a pretty but structured look that is easy to recreate in a few simple steps.
