Mermaid Waves Without A Crimper Hairstyle Instructions.
Today’s hair tutorial is all about getting those mermaid style mini waves without having to use a crimper.
Brush you hair and add some head protector.
Divide each half into top and bottom sections.
Clip the top one away.
Tightly plait the section all the way to the bottom.
You can do this with a crimper too but it’s quicker this way.
You can also vary the size of the waves by plaiting smaller or larger sections of hair.
Tie off the end with a band.
Repeat for the other sections.
Look at my super awesome speed.
Enjoy your moment as a 1990’s alternative rock star.
Then back to reality.
Slowly run the heated straightener down each plait a couple of times.
The heat will set the hair in that position.
After the have cooled, untie the plaits and unravel them.
You should see they are all wiggly now.
If your hair is hard to style you can add some hair spray too.
To make the hair fluffier, give it a brush through and fluff it out with your fingers.
The non heat version of this is to plait it and then leave it in overnight.
This style is cute with a bow or an usamimi up top.
Cute and very mermaid style.
