Master Class: Mermaid Hair

Bigger and bouncier than ever. Get set for your fairy-tale moment!

PREP
Apply a styling mousse or spray to just-washed ends and mid-lengths, then lightly massage into roots. Ideally, you’re looking for something that will hold, heat protect, add volume and keep frizz at bay.

ROUGH-DRY
Dry your hair on a medium setting until just over half dry. Move the nozzle around and into your locks to activate the styling product. This will build volume and add texture.

BLOW-DRY
Starting from the back, wrap a bristle brush around a section of hair. Pass the hairdryer’s nozzle down the length while unravelling it. Heat blast and hold to smooth out kinks.

LIFT
For extra root lift, a few rollers placed into the crown area will give hair a boost. Roll from the ends to the roots, smoothing down any flyaways with your fingers as you wind, then secure in place.

CURL
Release the rollers. Take sections from around the face at first and wind around a barrel styler. Wrap hair from mid-lengths to tips to create defined waves.

SET
Use fingers to separate curls and then gently sweep your parting into place. Use a touch of serum to tousle ends and, finally, use a blast of hairspray all over to set.
