37 Breathtaking Mermaid Inspired Hairstyles for Summer

Summer is already here and everybody is thinking about the perfect summer hairstyle. If you really want to stand out at the beach, you should definitely take a look at these amazing mermaid inspired hairstyles that are just perfect for the summer. Mermaids are mythical aquatic creatures that are famous for their long, luscious hair so it’s no wonder many girls take inspiration from them to create gorgeous hairstyles. Since mermaid hair is not specifically defined, there’s a lot of variations you can consider; natural blonde or brown hair with accessories from the sea, blue, green, or turquoise hair, rainbow colored hair, braided hair, and many others. The most important thing about mermaid inspired hair is that it should be pretty long, the longer – the better. This is where hair extensions come in; most girls don’t have extra long hair so they use extensions to add length to their hair. You can also play around with different colored extensions to get that rainbow colored hair.
