Just Cuts: Mermaid waves hair tutorial

Just Cuts, Level 3

Mermaid waves never go out of style. They give the perception of volume and thickness and literally make you feel a million dollars. The best part is that you don't actually need to spend time and money at the salon to get your mermaid waves on point. We've got you covered with this step by step how to. You’re welcome.

Keep your mermaid tresses healthy with regular trims at Just Cuts (approximately every six weeks).  

STEP 1: Towel dry freshly shampooed hair. You don't have to dry your hair completely as we need a little water to work with.

STEP 2: Apply JUSTICE Professional Sea Salt Spray all over your damp hair. 

STEP 3: Comb hair from roots to ends using a wide-toothed comb.

STEP 4: Using your wide-toothed comb, divide your hair into a 'Hot Cross Bun' section (4 equal sections).

STEP 5: Comb your first section of hair together and style it into a tight plait. Repeat this step for all 4 sections.

STEP 6: Twist each plait into a bun shape on top of your head and secure it in place with a hairband or some bobby pins. Repeat this for all 4 plaits and you should end up with 4 buns on top of your head. 

STEP 7: Leave your plaits to dry completely.

STEP 8: Take out the buns and gently unravel the plaits with your fingers. 

STEP 9: Once again, grab your wide-toothed comb and gently brush your hair into the desired look.
