Beach waves, or what I like to call Mermaid hair, is a classic summer trend that will always look flawless. It’s an effortless look that looks casual yet classy all at the same time. Who doesn’t want that?! If you want to achieve the perfect summer hairdo but don’t know exactly how to, keep reading!

 

Hair Prep

To get the ideal mermaid hair, use moose to prep your hair. When you step out of the shower, brush your hair so it’s tangle free. Then grab your favorite moose (the choice is yours, however, I encourage you to purchase one that mentions “curls” or “volume”).  Using the moose, scrunch the product throughout the hair. Once your hair dries, your hair will be prepped with your natural wave and/or curl.

 

Bring The Beach To You!

If you have naturally straight hair and the moose is not enough to prep, bring the beach to you with sea salt spray! Sea salt spray adds texture to your hair to fake that tousled “just came back from the beach” look. Spray your sea salt spray on to your dry hair and work it through the hair. Tip: If you have naturally dry, or curlier hair, I would encourage you to SKIP this step. I have naturally dry/wavy hair and I find that sea salt spray dries out my hair more and makes it a bit too frizzy.

 

Different Curls

Using a straightener or curling iron, curl your hair in different directions to make it look more natural. For one strand of hair, curl toward you. Then, for the next strand, curl away from you. It’s also important to shake out the strand after curling it, you never want the waves to look too tight. That would give the illusions of curls.



 

Skip The Heat

To get mermaid hair without heat, try sleeping with your hair in two buns or braids. For the bun method, split your hair into two top ponytails. Then twist one of the ponytails into a bun, and hold in place with a hair tie and bobby pins. Repeat with the other ponytail. When you wake up, undo the buns, and brush your hair gently. You should be left with wavy, beach hair. For the braid option, sleep with your hair in two french braids, when you awake your hair will be crimpy and wavy. Both are totally easy and non-damaging ways to achieve mermaid hair this summer.
