  3. Taking the ends of the pony, curl or hand style to your preference to create a faux fringe.
  4. Take the remaining hair and part down the center back. Create two 3 strand braids. 
  5. Wrap the first braid over the top of your head like a headband, secure with a bobby pin. Repeat with the second braid crossing over the first braid. Secure with another bobby pin.

Mega Mermaid Waves

  1. Prep your hair with Hair Love Prep Spray from mids to ends. Add 1-3 pumps of I Create Lift at the roots. Blow dry for added volume. 
  2. Start by sectioning the hair from the arches of your eyebrows to your crown in a horseshoe shape. Create a 3 strand braid and secure it with an elastic.
  3. Create 4 sections with the remaining hair and secure each in a 3 strand braid. Taking your flat iron, gentle press all the way down each braided section, this will lock in the wave.
  4. After you have let the braids cool, remove the rubber bands and shake out your hair and hand style to your preferred part. Spritz I Create Waves from mids to ends to define and add texture. 
  5. Taking varying sizes of sections, create random 3 strand braids and secure them with an elastic. These should not be perfect, the more variance the better.

  4. Wrap the ends around the loop and secure with a bobby pin at the base of the elastic. Repeat on both sides
