June 22nd is the annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island in NYC and it gave us some major hairspo. Mermaid hair is usually known as styles that are ocean-inspired and multi-colored. While we love that trend and highly recommend to our color experimenters, we also love a good mermaid hairstyle. A mermaid hairstyle is that beachy, wavy finish you get from hanging out by the beach or taking a dip in the ocean.
The look gives us major mermaid vibes and we are here for it! This look is perfect for those who don’t like to put too much effort or time into their hair but still want it to have that carefree finish. Check out which products we love to achieve this style:
A Mermaid Hairstyle Perfect for Summer
Creating this look is simple, texture is the name of the game. If you already have naturally wavy hair then you only need a few products to amp up the style. If your hair is on the straighter side, then you might need to get a little more creative. The easiest way to achieve a mermaid hairstyle with straight hair is to sleep in braids the night before so that your texture gets locked in. Once you’ve got a wavy base, it’s time to add in some products!
Add Some Moisture
Mermaids have extremely hydrated hair, so you should too! Prep your strands with a small amount of a moisturizing hair oil. We are obsessed with Love Beauty and Planet Rose & Almond Natural Oils to tame frizz and add some beautiful shine.
Spritz Some Texturizing Spray
There’s nothing that screams mermaid hairstyle more than sea salt spray. We love how Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray gives us a beachy finish without the crunchy finish. Spray this throughout your strands and make sure to scrunch your strands for added texture.
Put Some Hairspray at the Root
As a final measure for added texture, put a few sprays of hairspray near the root of your hair for extra lift. TRESemmé TRES Two Unscented Extra Hold Hair Spray is perfect for a long lasting mermaid hairstyle!
