Time to make waves. Get your kit sorted with Wella Deluxe for the perfect mermaid hair look. 

STEP 1

PREP HAIR

To create the most long-lasting mermaid hair look, work a golf ball-sized amount of Wella Deluxe Dream Waves & Curls Mousse through wet hair, concentrating on mid-lengths to ends. Use a wide-toothed comb to smooth and detangle before blow drying straight.

STEP 2

CREATE WAVES

Separate blow dried hair into two sections. Take your ghd Gold Styler and place around a small piece of hair. Then, glide straighteners back and forth from root to tip, creating a soft ‘S’ shaped wave. Repeat for every section.

STEP 3

LOOSEN UP

Comb through hair using fingertips to loosen glossy mermaid waves, creating a more relaxed feel.
