Since arriving in Birmingham, I have to say the weather hasn’t really been the nicest! Lately it’s been so wet and windy that anything I try to do with my hair gets ruined the moment I walk out of the door! I believe I’m not the only one feeling this way, so here’s a pretty simple hairstyle I’ve recently learnt. As long as you tie it well, it will last against even the strongest of British winds!
The mermaid braid in 4 simple steps!
Start by brushing all your hair down. Grab two equal pieces of hair from each edge, as in the picture below.
Overlap the pieces of hair from each side one over the other. Keep repeating this process with two new pieces of hair from each side.
Keep grabbing small pieces of hair from each side and intertwine them with the ones you did just before. Repeat until you reach the end of your hair.
Tie the end of the braid with an elastic band and you’re finished! Try it, I promise you’ll love the result! And by the time the wind is gone (if the wind in Birmingham ever does leave!) you’ll be a master of these braids. Ready for a summer on the beach, wearing a beautiful and truthful mermaid look!
