Want a romantic look without having to book yourself an appointment at the salon? Try the uber-femme mermaid braid!
Step 1: First off, gently wash your locks with Hana shampoo to keep it soft and smooth and get it ready for styling. Dry hair and get your bobby pins and rubber bands ready.
Step 2: Separate your locks in two equal sections.
Step 3: Braid the first section and secure with an elastic at the end. Once done, proceed to braid the other section and tie a rubber band around the tail as well.
Step 4: Combine the two plaits and make them look like one big thick braid. Make sure to line up the braids in the middle. Don't forget to secure them with bobby pins to make it look seamless. Keep the two braids in place by tying a rubber band around the tail.
Step 5: Here's how to make your mermaid braid truly romantic--mess it up! To do this, gently tug at each braid with your fingers. Repeat after us: Pull and fluff! The less sleek and uneven it is, the cooler and more natural it looks.
And there you have it! This versatile hairstyle will truly make a splash, whether you're on a date, a meetup with friends, a formal event, or even the office.
