Be sure to work on clean hair. Brush your hair smoothly and then flip it upside-down. Use some dry shampoo for extra texture, combing it through with your fingers. Now flip your head upright and create a middle parting. Next divide the hair into sections and start pleating two French braids. Start at the front and go to the sides of the head, working all the way to the base of the neck. When the two French braids meet, switch to fishtail braids for extra beautiful effect. Once done with the plaiting, secure the plaits with clear hair ties. Make sure to leave some of the length on the ends loose. Now, gently rough up the hair at the top of the head and leave some flyaways. This will make your mermaid braids look more romantic. As a final step, apply some anti-frizz cream. Your chic mermaid braided hairstyle is ready to rock!
