So you’re starting to crave a fresh new look and want to know how to put those extensions and color combinations to good use. Where do you turn for inspiration? There are a number of trendy effects you can achieve with hair extensions and a few select bottles of fashion color...so why not find your inspiration under the sea?

Of course, we’re talking about Mermaid Hair! It’s a bold and vibrant hair color trend that takes its inspiration from fanciful ocean stories like The Little Mermaid (Side note: The Disney version turns 27 this year!), and the colorful whimsy of the other Fairy Tale spectrum. The uninitiated may assume, based on the titular Disney princess, that “Mermaid Hair” refers to an electric red waist-length coif. Not quite! The literal definition of Mermaid Hair is tricky to define outright, but essentially it’s any color combination that utilizes cool-toned colors like greens, blues and purples to present an all over transformation with an “under the sea” aesthetic. Gorgeous ombres showcasing shades of teals and aquas create otherworldly color melts that call upon ocean palettes and bright vibrant hues like neon green and cobalt blue. Here’s why Mermaid Hair is a trend that’s here to stay. As always, you can reference our Color Takeover video featuring hair coloring expert Ashley Rocks for closer reference on creating a perfect Mermaid Hair effect!

The major appeal of Mermaid Hair is the versatility it embodies, primarily the host of color combos it can appropriate. Times are changing; bold “fashion colors” are less taboo for mainstream appropriation and that bevy of new shades to choose from leaves many clients with exotic new visions for their hair! Those angling for a brighter, bolder, and less “conventional” look can spring for the rainbow-riffic fashion colors on the blue, purple, and green spectrum. Those wishing for something slightly more conservative can work with their existing tones to combine lighter traces of ocean color for an equally compelling look.

Because of the vibrance and penchant for strong color saturation promised by Mermaid Hair, stylists can achieve stunning Mermaid effects on virtually any hair length and texture. While we’ve obviously got a soft spot for extensions-based effects, we’ve seen breathtaking mermaid hues on shoulder-length manes and pixie cuts.

Said versatility isn’t just a client privilege when it comes to Mermaid Hair, however. With a well-defined assortment of colors and an eye for fluid transition, stylists can work with a balayage of aquatic hues blended together, or even with “dip-dye” or “fluid hair” techniques.

Whether it’s re-emerging inspiration from Disney princess films of times past, shifting social attitudes towards unconventional color combinations, or simply a wild and creative streak that’s reared its head in salon chic, Mermaid Hair is a multifaceted hair effect that’s as bold as it is popular. Heed the ocean’s call!
