Whether your hair is chin length, super long and/or with bangs, mermaid waves are THE hot trend for Fall/Winter 2014-2015.
That's coming straight from the runways. Here is Armani's take on mermaid tresses:
And we LOVE the style It's a bit boho, relaxed, romantic + sexy and not trying too hard.
Take a cue from ageless Sandra Bullock. We like the Oscar winner's mermaid waves. The look softens what could be considered a severe center part.
Sandra looks lovely.
Mermaid waves do NOT have to appear so perfectly. The waves can be loose + irregular. There is no one correct way to achieve this wavy volume.
All you need to create mermaid waves quickly is a curling iron. To accentuate the cheekbones, begin the curling below the eyes as we see in Sandra's photo. After curling, mist hair with a light hairspray, and once hair cools, gently brush.
You could also plait damp hair before going to bed. In the morning, remove the braids and end up with lots of fresh from the sea waves + texture.
