How To Create No Frizz Mermaid Hair Waves

The beauty world has seen mermaid hair as an ever-green style trend. Let us guide you to create NO FRIZZ mermaid waves.

Mermaid waves became highlighted by celebrities and their most beautiful handmade mermaid wigs. These mermaid waves became so popular they dominated Tik Tok last year. Inspired by effortless hair flying in the wind, mermaid waves constitute heavier and longer hair locks. Kim Kardashian for one wears it best.

You may not all be able to afford the luxury of handmade celebrity wigs, but for those of you blessed with naturally wavy hair, achieving mermaid waves is a piece of cake.  For those of you with straight hair, there are a couple of simple tricks too, you can use to wake up with mermaid hair waves.

Step 1 – Start with clean hair

Shampoo and condition your hair then air dry.

The Iles Formula Hair Turban Towel is made of absorbent microfiber, and its twist, button, loop system sucks out excess wetness fast, without disturbing the natural curl formation, aiding in a quick-dry and no frizz.

Step 2 – Frizz protection

Apply the Iles Formula CURL REVIVE  serum, which will calm all kinds of frizz. Spray liberally throughout the hair, including the root area. This serum has protection against heated tools alongside humidity. It will be your best friend for this procedure.

Straight hair tip: Opt for a center parting and simply plait/braid your wet hair on either side before bed, and the next morning following the natural wavy hair procedure below.

Once totally dry take a paddle brush and gently brush through the natural waves, keeping the root area quite close to the head, then brushing through to explode a bit more volume in the midlength and ends.

Step 3 – Curling iron

Single barrel tongs can be used by placing the barrel upside down in the crest of each wave, however, using a  3 barrel curling iron is the quickest and most controllable way for you to make mermaid waves. Heat tools temporarily alter your hair shape, and you are free to create different kinds of waves your heart falls for. The larger the barrel the softer the wave.

Be sure to keep the root area relatively smooth with no frizz or volume and start tonging from the eye area down.

To achieve a relaxed look, do not forget to comb through your entire head after styling! Be sure the wave has totally cooled down before combing, with a wide-tooth comb.
