ALL ABOUT BEAUTY: Mermaid Hair

Uncategorized

Beautiful, Long luscious locks are always a stylish, classic option for any Fashionista in the know but can prove to be hard to maintain. However, when maintained in good health and well looked-after, long hair will look striking whatever way you choose to wear it whether it is a glamorous up-do or a sensational shiny and sleek straight style. In contrast, when locks are unhealthy, dry or damaged it can have the opposing effect, a completely undesirable mess of hair that is just unworkable.

To grow glamorous, mermaid-like long hair like this stunning Fashionista is a fairly simple process, one that doesn’t entail the use of ridiculously expensive products or any sort of bizarre hair growing rituals! Simply put; it just requires attention, care, patience and great dedication. Without argument you will encounter, as every other longhaired Fashionista has experienced at some point, the little voice in back of your mind suggesting how good a nice short pixie crop would look, and how easy it would be to maintain but you must keep to your goal and do not let yourself be persuaded otherwise! If you don’t, you may end up with an impulse crop cut holding the remains of your mid-lengths in your hands! Dedication is the key, and you will be repaid with healthy, lush mermaid locks for strong will and persistence.

Long locks need to be looked after with care as it is prone to split ends, breakage and requires a great deal of attention. A Fashionista must cater her hair care routine to the particular seasons, as hair in summer needs protection from heat that will damage lush locks into becoming dry and brittle. By rinsing hair with cool water when showing, damage can be prevented as hot water may cause long hair to become frizzy creating great difficulty when styling. To keep lengths shiny and healthy it’s best to avoid using heating tools such as blow dryers, straighteners or curling irons. However, if it’s absolutely necessary to use any of these tools, ensure to use a heat protection product to shield lengths from heat damage. Another tip is to avoid applying harsh chemicals onto hair. Chemicals such as peroxide act to strip hair follicles of their colour and can create dull and brittle hair. When colouring long hair, any product will cause a certain amount of damage, but dyes that contain low-levels of peroxide are much more desirable to use as the are substantially less damaging.

Who can’t help but envy this Fashionista’s long, wavy hair? Unlike the waves that graced Givenchy’s spring runway, this Fashionista’s hair actually cascades to her hip bones giving the mermaid effect. Indeed, her tresses are the epitome of summer. If the length of your hair is not remotely close to this Fashionista’s don’t be let down. This summer you can still achieve the beachy wave with the right products. Try Frederic Fekkai’s brand new Summer Hair Collection which consists of a beach waves mist, UV protectants and a deep conditioning mask to use after a day in the sun. 

This Fashionista is not only lucky to have natural wavy hair, but also natural primrose colored lips. Most Hermès models walked down the spring runway baring their natural lip color while a select few sported vibrant red lips. To amp up your natural lip color, try a tinted balm like this one by Burt’s Bees. 

In terms of the rest of her look, she stays on trend with a chiffon high-low skirt. Try this similar blue skirt by ASOS with ballet flats during the day and then strap on these platform wedges for the night.
