Our first mermaid hair envy happened when we saw The Little Mermaid and how perfect Ariel’s hair was. Since then, the trends in mermaid hair and what it means have changed quite a bit, but our envy and love for this trend have remained the same.
So, if you’ve been thinking of jumping the trend and making mermaid hair, we’ve put together a great list of 40 ideas to choose from. Be sure to scroll all the way down, as we have everything from pastel colors to dark greens to various shades of sea foam to the classic redhead Ariel.
