We tend to think of Valentine’s Day as a romantic holiday.

But there’s something special about that fervent four-letter word — love — that goes beyond the image of a couple.

Kids love celebrating the day of hearts, too.

Online beauty tutorials — step-by-step photo slideshows and video clips — are all the rage.

I scour fashions sites for new hairdos and nail designs daily. Six months ago, I learned how to fishtail braid Alejandra’s hair. Thanks YouTube. I also learned how to transfer newspaper print onto my nails via Pinterest. Awesome.

Omaha fashion blogger Sarah Lorsung Tvrdik and her hairstylist, Rebecca Forsyth are gaining web notoriety for such hair and beauty tutorials.

I first met Forsyth when I attended a blow-dry boot camp at Bungalow 8. She taught me the basics: How to hold the brush and the dryer. Which hairsprays and products work with my waves.

The salon regularly posts links to hair tutorials (most recently, for sleek, 1940s-inspired waves) on its Facebook page. The salon workshops are just as gnarly because they inspire women to venture outside of their normal hair. For me, that’s tying back my unruly locks with an elastic band or bobby-pinning my bangs to the side.

Um. (Elvis lip snarl). That’s exactly how I’m wearing my hair today.

Maybe it’s time to go revisit Forsyth’s tips.
