Mermaid Braid (Bonus Post!)

Hey hey hey everybody! Today, I have this super beautiful hairstyle—modeled by my super beautiful sister!—that is super easy, and great for the Spring/Summer themes!


Items needed: 3 elastics, hairbrush, hairspray, and bobby pins—if desired
Time: 10-15 minutes

Difficulty: medium

Alrighty! Let’s get to it!

1. To start, make sure that the hair is brushed, and if frizzy, I would recommend hairspraying it first.

2. To begin the mermaid braid, take a section of hair from the front, and bring to the back of the head. Then, begin a simple three-strand braid. Your hair should look something like this:
Step one

3. Now, pancake the braid, then secure with an elastic.

4. Now pic up a section of hair on the left side of the head..

5. Then, begin to fishtail-braid the left section of hair. Pancake the braid, then secure with an elastic.

6.  Repeat steps 4-5 on right side. Your hair should now look something like this:




{Make sure that you leave behind a bit of hair with the three-stranded braid!}

7. Now, gather all the hair together and braid it into a plait (using the fishtail braids for your left and right sections, and the three-stranded braid/leftover hair for the middle)—while you are braiding, make sure you pull out the other elastics (if desired), that way you don’t see them in the final look. (;

8. Hairspray—if desired. Also, if there are any spots that seem to be needing some pinning, bobby pin to your desire!

And that’s all there is to it! I hope y’all enjoyed this gorgeous hairstyle!





Happy Hairstyling!

❤ always: Emily
