The mermaid trend is a brand new summer hype surrounding the mystical sea creature that is half girl half fish. However, this trend does not take the fish tail seriously; it is more inspired by the sea colours, shiny scales and being all round more creative with style in an under-water style. As featured in Vogue, this trend is being embraced by both males (merman?) and females. So if you want to get on this hype, her are 15 steps towards joining the mermaid craze.
If you want mermaid inspired hair, without being committed to keeping it for a long time or at risk of damage by dying it, then simply use hair chalk. You rub the chalk over your hair and can wash the colour out when you shower.
If you have dark hair where hair chalk won’t show up, then try using hair extension and achieve a Kylie Jenner style mermaid twist to your hair.
This craze is not only for girls; if you fancy being a merman for the day then why not try making your hair look more mystical. This does not have to stop when it comes to facial hair either!
