How to Get Mermaid Waves Just Like Beyonce’s

Jonathan Elkhouri, master stylist and owner of Salon Khouri  just outside of Washington DC in Fairfax, Virginia, loves Beyonce‘s bold style choices and shares that she owns her look, and her hair always completes her style.

“I loved Beyonce‘s look at the PUNK: Chaos to Couture Costume Institute Gala because it was soft, romantic and playful. Many people don’t realize an easy way to recreate this look is by using your flat iron — yes, your flat iron,” says Elkhouri. “Using a two-inch flat iron for curling creates soft, wavy, beach-like curls as opposed the often tighter curl created by traditional curling irons. This is an exceptionally easy and richly romantic look!”

1. First, you need the right product. If the hair hasn’t been washed in a few days, start by spraying the roots with Kevin Murphy FRESH.HAIR.

2. Apply a heat protectant, such as Kevin Murphy DAMAGE.MANAGER, before using any hot tool.

3. Take one-inch sections of the hair, and starting about three inches down from the root, begin to curl the hair using the flat iron, slowly working toward the ends. Continue to use flat iron and work around the entire head.

4. Once finished, spray with a nice finishing and hold spray such as Eufora Elevate Spray.

BOOM. It’s just that easy, ladies. Now you too can rock gorgeous mermaid waves a la Beyonce! If you enjoyed this Beyonce hair tutorial, then you’ll enjoy learning how to recreate her messy updo as well.
