Beauty Bites: Mermaid Waves
iamClaire. Editors
Published on

When everyone started getting bob cuts, you stayed strong and held out, knowing one day your patience will pay off. That day has come! Nothing spells summer like long, carefree, and sexy beach waves.

The trick with beach waves is to twist the hair as you wrap it around the curling wand. It will give you beautiful S-curls instead of flat, doll-like ringlets.

Begin with a curl-defining mousse to avoid your hair going limp and flat by midday. We used Suave Professionals Flexible Control Curl Mousse. The lightweight formula will help your hair hold the curl without weighing it down.

Finish off the look with Suave Professionals Flexible Control Finishing Hairspray. This is not your tita's hairspray! It locks the style in place without the crunchiness. Go ahead and run your fingers through your hair.

Watch the video below to find out how to re-create these gorgeous mermaid curls on your own.
