Mermaid waves are now an established hair trend and one that is really, really appealing. Not only do they look great, they're also very easy to recreate in quite a few different ways.

This type of hairstyle is just perfect for a springtime beauty look so scroll through the gallery above and get inspired!

Pretty as a princess

Tumbling waves like these always have a magical, princess-like quality and, as such, they're great for channeling a little fairytale chic into your look. This might be more true for any Game of Thrones fans out there...

To style: Blow-dry using Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream then use a medium-barrel curling iron to create loose waves along the lower 2/3 of your hair. Finish with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

Beachy beauty

For any wannabe (or real) surfer girls out there, a more low-key, beachy approach to mermaid waves might be a better option. With a distinct "I just climbed out of the sea" vibe, there's something very appropriate about these particular mermaid waves!

Top style: Spray the hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and scrunch with your hands. Twist it into several sections and blow-dry each one individually. Once dried, finger-comb the hair to reveal a set of loose, tousled waves.


If you want a hairstyle that will definitely stand out from the crowd, zig-zag waves might be just what you're looking for.

To style: Use a small curling iron to create the corners of the zig-zags, holing the hair bent around it for a couple of seconds before moving down a few centimeters and doing the same thing, bending the hair in the other direction. It can be a little time consuming to get all of the hair done so work in big-ish sections. Finish with a mist of Bold Control Hairspray.

Center Part

To get an ultra-chic look that appears really pulled together, make a center part the main focus of your style. This is a particularly good option for a formal occasion or something like a job interview.

Top style: Use a tail comb to define your part then curl the bottom two thirds with a curling iron. Once you're done making waves, brush the hair through for a unified wave and fix with hairspray.
