A survey conducted by Healthline shows that, although people are all over the place when it comes to Valentine’s Day, a slight majority of 54% agreed with the statement: “I love it. It’s a fun way to celebrate the loved ones in your life.” Another 21% indicated that “it’s just another day for me,” while roughly 18% said, “I don’t care for it. It’s too commercial.” Only 7% agreed that Valentine’s Day “makes me sad and lonely.”


At 62% vs. 34%, people who were married or in a relationship were more likely than single people to love February 14. However, married people also were the most likely group to say they “don’t care” about the holiday, with 20% of marrieds responding that way. But, whereas 19% of singles were in the “sad and lonely” camp, only 2% of marrieds said the holiday made them feel that way.


When asked to check as many categories as applied, 60% of respondents indicated that family members received their expressions of love, 44% expressed love to a partner, 18% to a best friend, 14% to their pets and 11% to social media friends. More men than women—30% vs. 24%—said they would be sad to be alone on Valentine’s Day.

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
