Love is in the air. With Valentine’s Day just a few weeks away, Ricky Pennisi, the “king of curly hair,” leading stylist and founder of RI CI wants to help everyone rule the curl, offering dating advice in the beauty department.

Below is some dating advice you won’t want to ignore — hair styles for short, medium and long hair, along with some tips and tricks to look just like the celebs.

Short Hair:  For a sexy, tousled look start with a sulfate-free shampoo like RI CI Splash. Once you are out of shower, towel dry your hair and run RI CI Thirsty Styling Gel evenly through hair. For curls with lots of movement and body, lay a cotton long sleeve t-shirt on your bed, tie your hair up in it and let it dry. Once the hair is dry, take the t-shirt out and smooth out with a serum for added shine.

Medium Hair: Section your hair into three levels, starting at the bottom and working your way to the top, apply RI CI Thirsty Styling Gel. Then, use the RI CI Memory Setting Spray all over your hair. This step blocks out the frizz and keeps curls in their place. Finally, flip your hair over and squeeze out any excess moisture on a top. Air dry for beach waves, or use a diffusor to enchase your curls by 30%.

Long Hair: Apply a pea size amount of RI CI Velvet Smooth Serum onto your entire hair and blow dry using a round brush. Then, run a curling iron 1 ½ inch, curling towards your face. For a dramatic look, do a side part and secure behind your ear with a bobby pin.
