Have you always admired the wavy hair of beautiful mermaids? I almost looks like they are wearing the beautiful hair extensions sold by Bellami! If you have tried unsuccessfully to achieve the same style, there are a few different techniques worth trying. In fact, there are at least three different ways to get those beautiful waves in your own hair without the stress.
The Simple Twist No-Heat Solution
The simple twist solution requires absolutely no heat at all. Simply wash your hair the way you normally would with shampoo and conditioner. Instead of using the blow dryer, wait for your beautiful locks to air-dry for about 30-60 minutes. When your hair is mostly dry and only a bit damp, separate it into two sections.
Grab the first section and begin twisting it to the right. Continue twisting from the roots to the ends and then place the twist right on the top of your head with a bobby pin. You will need to do the same thing with the other section. Sleep with this style and then take it out in the morning for natural and stunning mermaid waves.
The Curling Iron Quick Wave
If you are trying to achieve mermaid waves in the shortest amount of time, you can use a curling iron to get it done. However, it is important to take a certain approach or else you will end up with large curls. It is better to use a curling wand, but it is possible to achieve these waves with any type of curling iron as long as you take the proper steps.
Make sure your hair is dry and brush out any knots ahead of time while your curling iron is heating up. Grab a section of hair that is about an inch thick and begin wrapping it right around the curling iron. Instead of wrapping the strand directly from the root to the ends, you will start mid-shaft and then work your way down to the ends. Wrap the section loosely around the curling iron and hold it in place for around 8-12 seconds.
Continue the process of grabbing strands that are about an inch thick and wrapping them around the barrel of the curling iron. As soon as you have completed the whole head, run your fingers through your hair to loosen the waves up a bit more. You can complete this style in about 15 or minutes or less.
The Braid and Blow-Dry Trick
Have a bit of extra time and looking to take a different approach? Wash your hair, wait until it is only slightly damp and then separate strands into sections that are about an inch thick. Braid those sections and tie them at the ends. Grab your hair dryer and allow the heat to blow over the braid for about 8-10 minutes or until they are completely dry.
Spray the braids with your favorite hair spray and then take them out. You will have gorgeous waves with ease.
Consider trying one of these three options to create beautiful and flawless mermaid waves in your own hair. You can complete the style with a sea salt setting spray. The sea salt in the spray will keep your stunning style looking fresh.
