Although this DIY mermaid hair tutorial might be more suited for the spring and summer, there is something magical about the winter season as well that can be channeled into these styles. After all, women can maintain the long wavy hair while adopting more of a blue or silver color rather than light pinks. As for the fall season, the DIY mermaid hairstyle can follow deeper colors of reds and oranges.

More versatile than people would initially think, the DIY mermaid hairstyle is rather easy to execute. Unless, of course, a girl needs extensions. That aside, all that is needed is some leave-in conditioner and a couple of thick pigtail braids. Once the dampened hair is dried, the braids are undone and brushed out with fingers.
