    The effortless mermaid waves look is a classic go-to for effortlessly chic style. Mastering this perfectly undone and textured look helps bring a burst of summer energy to your hair anytime, anywhere.

    A boho-inspired look at heart, the mermaid wave can complement almost any outfit. Whether it’s summer or winter, mermaid waves are a sexy carefree look that can take you through any season. What’s important is that you create the right texture—this is key to mastering the unstructured, off-duty look. With the help of the right TRESemmé products, you can recreate the look at home without spending a fortune.

    Step 1: Shake before using TRESemmé TWO Extra Hold Mousse. Apply the product through damp hair from roots to ends.

    Step 2: Take 2” sections and start braiding. Then continue to braid, section by section.

    Step 3: Let your braids dry and avoid touching your hair to prevent frizz.

    Step 4: Now it’s time to loosen braids section by section! Then re-apply a dollop of Mousse for extra hold.

    Step 5: Lastly, spray TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Level 3 to lock in your mermaid waves! Make sure to spray 10-12” away from your hair.

    There you have it! Enjoy your gorgeous mermaid waves at home.
