What often go untouched during Fashion Week are the lovely hairstyles, which, in this case is mermaid hair. Design duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy are inspired by childhood nostalgia, which makeup artist James Kaliardos and hairstylist Odile Gilbert combine with a touch of 80s grunge.

The resulting look is youthful and inspirational to many ages and surprisingly easy to replicate. Working with John Frieda, the stylist added extensions to create the mid-back length and spritzed it with a leave-in conditioner spray.

One each strand is coated and dampened, you can then separate the hair into two even sections and braid each into a thick pigtail. Once the hair has dried, take the braids out and brush them with your fingers. Create a side part and sweep hair over to one side, twisting it and securing it with a decorative pin.
