I’ve been a beauty magazine editor for almost a decade, and for the past year and a half I’ve also been writing a weekly hair tutorial for a client. What I love about covering hair is that while there’s always a few wild and fierce hair trends, certain looks never go out of style.

I’ve noticed that no matter what’s happening in fashion, from June through the end of August full blown mermaid hair {also known as beachy hair} becomes wildly popular because it’s a romantic look that can be obtained with very little time and effort.

There are a lot of mermaid hair tutorials out there, some better than others, so I thought I’d offer some suggestions gleaned from top hair stylists I’ve interviewed–I promise these will work!

1. Mermaid hair almost does itself if you have a good cut, especially one with layers concentrated near the face. This summer’s updated twist is mermaid hair meets the bob – so cute, don’t you think?

2. It took me a long time to believe this, but the right product is enormously helpful for styling. Beach spray is great for naturally wavy hair but if you have dry hair, stick to a texturizing cream on towel-dried hair and let your hair dry naturally. Beach Head Surf Shake texturizing spray, Seaside Smooth anti-frizz cream and Coastal Cooler shine mist will help you with your mermaid styling at very affordable prices.

3. You can get a similar look with a flat iron by taking one inch sections of hair and slowly pulling the iron down, rotating in a half-way turn.

4. This little tip I learned from Vito Esposito and I think it’s one of the best ways to make your hair always look natural: curl each section of hair in the opposite direction–one towards your face, the next away from your face, etc. for a pretty look that doesn’t look “done”.

What’s your favorite way to wear your hair in the summer?
