How to Achieve Mermaid Hair at Home
1. MermadeHair Spin Curling Wand
Mermade Hair Spin Curler 25mm is an auto hair curler that essentially curls your hair for you! The ceramic and ionic coated plates spin 360 degrees clockwise and anti-clockwise, automatically rotating your hair around the barrel for gorgeously glossy and perfect waves. Every. Single. Time. The Mermade Spin also has built-in LCD temperature control with variable settings between 100-200 degrees that allows custom styling on all hair types to ensure minimal heat damage. This curler also features a cool tip you can hold onto when styling, and it comes with a complimentary heat protection glove to keep your hands safe! Create defined, head-turning hairstyles in just a few seconds with the help of this self-curling tool!
Follow these steps to create effortless curls:
Turn the curler on using the ON/OFF buttons.
Adjust the temperature using the -/+ buttons according to your hair type. We always recommend starting at a lower temperature and working your way up as needed. Generally, fine or damaged hair should stay at a lower temperature, and thicker coarse hair may need to be at a higher temperature.
Apply a heat protection spray - the Mermade Hair Mist Heat Styling Spray not only protects your hair from heat damage but also helps hold the style and prevent frizz!
Make sure your hair is 100% dry and section your hair using clips or hair ties - we love the Mermade Grip Clips.
Grab a smaller section of hair to curl. As a rule, if you want tighter curls use a smaller section, and for loose big waves, pick up a bigger section.
Clamp the wand towards the bottom of your hair and press and hold either ‘L’ or ‘R’ buttons to curl your hair either to the left or right (always best to curl away from your face!). Make sure to release the button before you get too close to your scalp (no burning please!!).
Hold the hair on the barrel for about 3-10 seconds depending on how defined you want the curl.
Release the clamp and unwrap your hair from the barrel.
Press ‘set’ to return the clamp to the starting position and repeat on the rest of your hair!
Wait until your hair is cooled and gently brush out the curls for a glamorous on-trend look.

2. Mermade PRO Waver
The Mermade Pro Waver gives you the mermaid waves you’ve always dreamt about having. The barrels on this triple barrel waver are made from high quality ionic ceramic barrels to protect your hair from damage, while sealing your cuticles, infusing moisture and eliminating frizz to leave your hair glossy and shiny long-lasting waves. The advanced heating technology allows you to style your hair in minutes and create a luscious stylish look instantly. The variable heat settings also let you change the temperature to suit your hair and minimise potential damage. This styler also comes with a cute heat resistant glove to protect your fingers and hands from the heat. The Mermade Pro Waver barrels give you that gorgeous mermaid style wave and is simple and easy to use.
How to use:
Make sure your hair is 100% dry, clean and free of tangles before using. Press and hold the ON/OFF button until the indicator lights up. Use the right and left buttons to adjust the temperature on your desired heat. We always recommend starting on a low temperature and building up as needed.
To make your style last longer, and to protect your hair it is essential to prep your hair correctly. We recommend using the Mermade Hair Mist Heat Styling Spray to not only give you heat protection but also make sure your curls last all night long!
Divide your hair into sections using either clips or hair ties (we love the Mermade Grip Clips). Smaller sections will give you a more defined look, while looser sections will give you that beachy undone finish.
Taking one section at a time, starting a few centimetres away from your roots, clamp the hair in the styler and hold for about 5-10 seconds. Release and repeat to the end of the section.
Repeat these steps for the rest of your hair.
Allow your hair to set by letting it cool down. Once cooled, comb through using fingertips or a wide-tooth comb to loosen the waves and give a more effortless finish.
