If you have not given this much thought, then it’s about time that you do! Let us help you out with this for a bit. As we all know, there are plenty of hair trends during the summer season but there is one trend that stands out, and it is no other than the mermaid hair color.

If you haven’t seen or heard of this hair trend, it is about time that you do!

This is the hairstyle that is slowly conquering the hair industry and is considered to be the best summer hair trend yet! Mermaid hair is just exactly what you think it is!

Mermaids are known to be magical and mystical creatures who look enchanting and perfect for their perfect figure, glowing fish tails, and long wavy hair. While many of us would not like to have fish tails, you cannot deny the fact that you, at one point in your life, envied the long glorious hair of mermaids.

Well, the hair industry’s mermaid hair color is all about that plus more! Mermaid hair is an organic hair color that features a beautiful and ethereal combination of pastel or ocean-like colors.

Because of its rising popularity, more and more hair stylists are trying to learn and master this look. But make sure that you only work with the experts because a hair technique that is as beautiful as this can be quite difficult to achieve and it will only look magical when executed properly.

2. How Is It Done?

How Is It Done
Just like the previous hair color trends, the mermaid hair would require a long and tedious coloring process and here are some of the steps involved in that process:

Step 1. Prepare Your Hair
Anyone would want to have this color, but not all hair can be a candidate for such process. To determine if your hair is suitable for this type of color, you have to be honest with the full color and treatment history of your hair to your hairstylist. You also need to tell him if you have a sensitive scalp.

Before you have your hair colored, make sure that you prepare it for the long and grueling hair coloring process that it will undergo. The day before you are scheduled to have your hair colored, avoid washing your hair so that you can preserve the natural oils in your head that will protect the scalp from the harmful effects of the bleach.

Step 2. Bleach Hair
This step is carried out in order to make the hair dye look more vibrant. This process takes about 3 to 5 hours. But if you have had your hair colored for the past two years, the process may be extended for a few minutes to hours.

Another thing to take note of is the lighter the color you wish to achieve, the longer your hair needs to be bleached.


Step 3. Add Color
After the bleaching process, the stylist is now ready to add color to your hair. But what color should he add? Well, that is totally up to you! If you have no idea about what color combination to choose, continue reading because we have a few suggestions below.

However, you must keep in mind that bleaching may lead to hair problems and damage so you should make sure that your hairstylist will carry out all the needed precautions to minimize the damage. Plus, do not forget about the maintenance treatments that you need to do at home.
