Sexy Red Lipstick & Hair Combos to Wear on Valentine's Day

Other than every day, Valentine's Day is our favorite holiday for indulging in a red lip. So naturally we'd suggest taking your Valentine's Day look ten levels up a notch on the spice scale, and pairing whatever ensemble you have planned with a sexy red lipstick. One, because a simple swipe of red supplies instant confidence, and two, you'll have your date drooling before dessert even arrives. Like Audrey Hepburn said, there's a shade of red for every woman, so look to our favorite ladies of Instagram to find yours—powerful meets playful in these red pout and hair combinations.
