This year’s big hair trend is the mermaid wave – and what better way to achieve the look than with Mermade Hair themselves.
The longer and wavy the look, the better for me – so with my newly fitted micro ring extensions, I really wanted to try the natural, beachy look.
The Mermade Hair range I tested includes the Quick Dry Brush (£11), Pony Kit (£19), Pink Claw Clip (£5) and the wonderful Pro Waver with 32mm barrel waves ( £59) – the whole thing amounting to £94.
With many events/places to visit over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been able to play around with the styling kit and I’m really, really impressed.
You can tell in this style it’s a much fluffier wave.
I waved smaller sections and brushed lightly for a fuller, thicker style.
I love these waves for a more casual daytime look – and this style just needs some touch up bangs, a spritz of dry shampoo and can last up to 4-5 days.
As with any hair tool, it depends on the thickness, coarseness and general health of your hair on how it will style/hold up in the heat.
I have fairly fine hair but a lot – so I feel like mine can hold styles just fine.
I want to redo this look with a few more products.
But, as far as I’m concerned, I was pretty happy with how this look turned out.
I had a bottle of Moroccan Oil (100ml available from Look Fantastic for £32.85)with me and lathered A LOT of it when styled.
I didn’t keep the wave in my hair too long with this look, I wanted a sleeker look with just a subtle wave.
The best thing about creating this look is that no amount of oil is too much – the shinier and healthier your hair, the better!
I really enjoyed creating look three.
I was invited to the fabulous Oh Polly London fashion week show, so the Mermade hair wave came in very handy to give me an on-trend style.
I kept my bangs in a half up, half down, then just waved towards the ends for that natural finished result.
The verdict of the Mermade hair range…
I haven’t stopped using it.
The quick-drying brush is a godsend for my new extensions – I feel like a lot of brushes aren’t the best suited for detangling, but this one does it without pulling too hard.
Also, I’m OBSESSIONED with the claw clip – it’s such an old school product but has made a comeback.
It’s best to just do these laid back, relaxed looks with a few strands of hair pulled back through the front section.
The waver helped me find a style that honestly doesn’t need a lot of editing because the more you wear it, the more laid back and pretty the waves get.
