Let's make some waves, merbabes!

Step 1: 

Let's kick off this mermaid makeover with a clean slate—literally. Start by giving your mane a good scrub to wash away any impurities and get it primed for styling. Freshly washed hair is the canvas upon which we'll create our aquatic masterpiece! But wait, there's more to it than just a simple wash-and-go routine. To achieve that enviable summer texture and those swoon-worthy waves, you need the right products to lock in moisture and banish frizz like it's yesterday's news.

Enter stage left: Colour WOW's "Cocktail Spray," a moisture-locking marvel favored by none other than Kardashian hairstylist extraordinaire, Chris Appleton. This little gem not only hydrates your locks but also adds a dose of shine that could rival even the sunniest of days.

But we're not stopping there, oh no! To ensure your hair stays sleeker than a dolphin's back, it's time to bring out the big guns: "Dream Coat" by Colour WOW. This frizz-fighting superhero not only tames humidity-induced chaos but also seals in every last bit of that shimmering goodness. Once your hair is thoroughly drenched in these magical potions, it's time to break out the blow-dryer and get to work. But fear not, dear mermaids, for with these products by your side, you'll be well on your way to mermaid hair perfection in no time!

Step 2: 

Say goodbye to frizz and hello to sleek sophistication! When it comes to nailing those mermaid waves, frizz is the ultimate villain we must defeat. And to conquer this foe, we're shaking up our styling routine.

Out with the old, in with the new—that's our motto! For a fresh take on achieving those flawless waves, we're swapping out the trusty round brush for a sleek paddle brush. It's time to level up your blow-drying game, folks! Divide and conquer—that's the name of the game here. Section your hair into three parts, starting from the nape of your neck and working your way up. With each section, unleash the power of the paddle brush and blow-dry your hair straight, ensuring those roots are as smooth as a silk sheet.

But wait, there's a method to this madness! To keep things modern and effortlessly chic, we're keeping those roots straighter than a straight-A student. We're talking sleek and straight roots, none of that poofy volume nonsense. Now, here's where the magic really happens: prepping those extensions! Follow the same routine as you did with your natural locks, ensuring they're primed and ready to seamlessly blend into your mermaid mane.

So grab your paddle brush and let's banish frizz like it's going out of style. With each stroke, you're one step closer to mermaid perfection!

Step 3: 

Are you ready to take your hair from fab to absolutely fabulous? Step right up, because we're about to add some serious length to those locks!

Now that your hair is all blown-dry and ready for action, it's time to bring out the big guns—extensions, baby! For this mermaid-worthy look, we're talking longer-than-life locks that would make even Rapunzel jealous. Our weapon of choice? The 24” Classic Clip-in extensions from FabuLive, or hey, feel free to pick your favorite lengthening Luxy extensions.

But hold up, mermaids, blending is key! We want those extensions to seamlessly meld into your natural hair for a look that's as flawless as it is fabulous. So, how do we achieve this hair harmony? Allow us to spill the tea.Here's a little trick straight from the Kardashian playbook: braiding those pesky baby hairs and shorter strands around your neck. Trust us, Kim Kardashian herself swears by this tip to keep her extensions looking au naturel.

Here's the game plan: section your hair horizontally below your ears, creating a neat little line across your head. Now, grab those baby hairs and shorter pieces and weave them into a small braid, securing it at the back of your head with a trusty bobby pin. Now, here's where the magic really happens: pop your first clip-in extension over the top, hiding any shorter pieces that refuse to play nice with your extensions. It's like a little hair disguise, blending seamlessly into your mermaid mane.

So go ahead, unleash your inner mermaid with those luscious locks. With a little help from FabuLive, you'll be turning heads like never before! 🧜‍♀️

Step 4: 

Ready to turn those mermaid dreams into reality? It's time to add the finishing touches and bring those barely-there waves to life! Now that your clip-in extensions are nestled snugly in your mane, it's time to bust out the secret weapon: the triple-barrel curling iron. Oh yes, we're talking about the tool that will take your waves from meh to mesmerizing in a matter of minutes.

Here's the scoop: grab your triple-barrel wand and get ready to work some magic. We recommend opting for a larger barrel size to keep those waves loose and carefree, just like a mermaid frolicking in the waves. Now, pay attention to this pro-tip: instead of holding your iron in one spot like a statue, lightly clamp down and rock it back and forth a few times before gliding down your hair. This technique ensures that your waves are soft and seamless, without any harsh lines or kinks.

As you work your way down your hair, remember to adjust the depth of your clamp, going a bit deeper as you move away from the roots. This creates a natural gradient of waves, adding to that effortlessly chic vibe we're aiming for. And here's the fun part: mix it up! Choose different-sized sections of hair and alternate between them to create a beachy, textured look that's straight out of a mermaid fantasy.

But remember, mermaids, keep those roots straight for that modern, relaxed flair. After all, we're going for mermaid chic, not mermaid chaos! So grab that triple-barrel curler and get ready to make waves like never before. With a little finesse and a touch of magic, you'll be rocking those barely-there mermaid waves like a true sea siren! 🌊🧜‍♀️

Step 5: 

We're almost there, mermaids! It's time to put the finishing touches on those mesmerizing mermaid waves and frame that gorgeous face of yours. As you work your way around your head, be sure to leave out those front pieces to frame your face. We want to keep things cool and relaxed, so we're switching up our technique for these special strands. 

Enter the flat iron, our trusty sidekick for creating those effortlessly chic waves. Here's the lowdown: grab a section of hair and lightly clamp down with your straightener, holding the piece below the iron. Now, it's time to get creative! Instead of just running the iron straight through, we're going to create some magic.

Start by pushing the flat iron around your hair while simultaneously shaping it into an "S" curve. As you move down your hair, keep recreating that "S" shape, almost like you're painting a masterpiece with your hair. But here's the secret sauce: keep that clamp light and keep moving! We're talking constant motion, baby. Don't linger in one spot too long, or you'll risk ending up with a poofy mess instead of those sleek, relaxed waves we're aiming for.

The result? A face-framing wave that's as cool as a cucumber and effortlessly chic. It's the perfect finishing touch to your mermaid makeover, bringing that extra touch of glam to your seaside style. So grab that flat iron and get ready to work some hair magic! With a little finesse and a whole lot of style, you'll be rocking those mermaid waves like a true sea goddess. 

Step 6: 

You're almost there, mermaids! It's time for the final touch-ups to ensure your waves are as sleek and sultry as can be. 

Take a moment to scan your mane and identify any rogue pieces or roots that are looking a tad too poofy for your liking. No worries, though—we've got just the trick to tame those unruly strands! Grab your trusty flat iron and work your magic, using the same technique as before to smooth out any areas that need a little extra love. Remember, the key to this look is keeping things controlled and not overly volumized, so don't be afraid to dial back the poof factor.

Now, let's seal the deal with a little bit of hair oil magic. Choose a nourishing hair oil that will not only lock in moisture but also add a healthy dose of shine to your mane. Simply run your fingers through your waves, distributing the oil evenly from root to tip for that extra touch of glam.

And last but certainly not least, it's time to lock in your look with a spritz of hairspray. But not just any hairspray—we're talking about a humidity-proof formula that will keep your waves looking flawless come rain or shine. So go ahead, give your hair one final zhuzh, and marvel at your mermaid transformation! With a little bit of love and a whole lot of style, you're ready to conquer the world with your effortlessly chic waves.
