Mermaid Waves Without Heat Styling

If you're missing summer already, want to avoid heat damage and are looking for no muss, no fuss hairstyle... this is the post for you! These simple mermaid waves are ideal for those days you fancy giving your hair a break from styling tools, but still want an on-trend look.

I absolutely love the products above for creating this style. The Bumble and Bumble Surf range is perfect for adding buoyant body and a soft, sea-breezy texture, while the Oribe Après Beach Spray provides light hold and lustrous shine.

The Oribe offering really is a top notch product for those who find salt sprays too drying and stiff - perfect for having holiday-ready waves and hair you can get a brush through afterwards.

Step 1:
In the evening, wash and condition hair with Bumble and Bumble Surf Shampoo and Conditioner (leave the latter on for a few minutes if you're in need of extra moisture). Lightly towel dry.

Step 2:
Twist hair into Princess Leia-esque buns and clip into place with hair grips or slides. Blast with a hairdryer on the cool setting for a few minutes, and leave until you're ready for bed. This step can be skipped but helps create some extra volume for those with fine hair.

Step 3:
Before sleeping, let hair loose again and style into a single low plait at the back of the neck. Fasten with a small hair tie. It should feel secure, but still comfortable.

Step 4:
In the morning, your hair should be pretty much dry (but it doesn't matter if it's still slightly damp). Take out your plait and spray with the Oribe Après Beach Spray, ruffle hair up for more movement if desired.

Et Voilà! Beach-perfect waves with no airfare costs and zero heat styling.
