Every girl at one point in her life has dreamed of being a mermaid. It’s time to take the plunge and be a mermaid now! Beautiful hues and streaks of colour to mimic the wonderful ocean is every mermaid's hair goal. If you have warm undertones, choose subtle ombre blues and purples that blend naturally into your dark hair. If you have cooler undertones and are ready for a transformation, go all out and dye the whole thing blue! The possibilities are endless with this look, and you can put your own spin on it and wash it away!

To get your own: For most of the variants of mermaid-hair shades, the simple process of bleach and dye has to be followed. The hair must be bleached as light as possible. For easier access and dyeing, split your hair down the middle and put one side up in a pigtail so they don't mix.

Make up looks: To achieve under the sea look, enhance your eyes with shades of blue like turquoise, electric blue, cool blue and shimmers of green and purple. For your lips try sticking to pastel colours like pink, which will compliment yellow based skin tones or lavender pastels for cool toned skin or a bubblegum pink which goes well with a neutral toned skin. To complete the look, add a bit of sparkly stick-ons to achieve an ocean themed, rainbow fish-esque creation.

Hairstyles: Mermaid hairstyles goes well with long thick hair. Braids, soft waves and half up half down looks give this colour life. Braids will add dimension and show off the colour brilliantly. You can also accessorize your hairstyle with sea shells & glitter.
