    Prepare Your Hair with One Step Wave

    Start by applying TRESemmé One-Step Wave to damp hair. This product is a game-changer for creating natural, effortless waves. It adds just the right amount of hold and texture without making your hair feel crunchy or heavy plus it’s loaded with extra benefits like heat protection and added volume.


    Rough Dry to Set the Stage

    Once you've applied TRESemmé One-Step Wave, it's time to rough dry your hair. This technique involves drying your hair without a brush, using just your hands and a blow dryer to maintain the natural texture. Keep the dryer moving to avoid overheating any single area, and continue until your hair is completely dry and ready for styling.


    Crimp Your Way to Wavy Perfection

    Next, section your hair and use a crimper to create those iconic Mermaid Waves. Start close to the roots and work your way down, pressing the crimper onto each section for a few seconds. Repeat this process throughout your hair, ensuring that each wave is as enchanting as the last.


    Set Your Style with Ultra Fine Hairspray

    To ensure your Mermaid Waves last all day, finish your look with TRESemmé Ultra Fine Hairspray. This lightweight spray offers a strong hold without weighing down your hair, keeping your waves intact and frizz-free. Spritz it evenly across your hair, and you're ready to shine like the sea.
