Do you fancy a new styling for your hair? Then Mermaid Waves could be interesting for you. The summery waves in your hair immediately provide variety and are currently very much in vogue.
Do you like to style your hair into casual beach waves? Then you might like Mermaid Waves too. The romantic curl styling can currently be seen by numerous fashion and beauty influencers on Instagram, TikTok, and Co. and is now a popular hairstyle trend for the summer.
Mermaid Waves are not really new. Rather, the playful curls are currently experiencing a revival, which could also have something to do with new styling tools - especially for this type of curl.
We'll tell you here how you can style the trendy waves in your hair and which hair types the look is particularly flattering.
At first glance, the trend curls are reminiscent of beach waves. But if you take a closer look, you will notice that the mermaid waves appear smaller and more defined, almost like crimped hair. Beach waves, on the other hand, fall like very large, easily combed curls.
In addition, the mermaid waves start quite high up in the hair, while beach waves are usually only styled in lengths.
Style Mermaid Waves step-by-step with the wave straightener:
You don't have a wave straightener at hand or would you like to try out whether you like the look at all before you buy a new styling tool? Then you can resort to an old trick that many may still remember from their childhood. A result that is very similar to that of the wave straightener is obtained with braided pigtails that you leave in your hair overnight.
That's how it's done:
It is best to wash your hair the evening before and let it dry slightly. Then divide the hair into several sections and braid them from the roots down to the tips. The following applies: the more braids there are, the more intense the waves.
The braids stay in the hair overnight. Tip: It is best to use small, hair-friendly invisibobbles. You avoid the unsightly kink in your hair that many elastic bands leave behind after long periods of wear.
Carefully loosen the braids the next morning and loosen up the resulting waves in the hair a little with your fingers. Finally, fix the Mermaid Waves with hairspray.
Basically, the trend hairstyling works for all hair types. With strong natural curls and very thick hair, the styling with the wave straightener can be much longer than with straight hair, since strand by strand is worked on.
The look is especially great for those who want more body and volume, as the waves are styled into the entire hair, from the roots to the tips.
