How-To Be A Mermaid IRL

By Ciara Kelly

There comes a time in a girl's life when throwing caution to the wind and relocating to the ocean to become a mermaid sounds super appealing. Unfortunately us human gals can’t grow a long, shiny tail, but we can play dress up, and who doesn’t love that!?


Mermaid Hair, Don’t Care

In order to become a mermaid IRL, you must first switch out your hair do. The bigger and brighter, the better! Take inspiration from Perrie Edwards in Little Mix’s latest vid – pink wavy locks are perfect! If commitment isn’t your thing, make like Kylie and get yourself a damn fine wig collection.


If in Doubt, Add Glitter

Mermaids and glitter go hand in hand. With it being the festive season, you can go as bold as you like! In need of some inspo? Look no further than the uber talented and friends of boohoo - The Gypsy Shrine who made over Harriet into a green sequinned goddess. 

Nail it

Pinterest has hundreds of nail art looks to follow. Whether you want to stay fairly understated and use a glittery polish or go a bold with these mer-mazing gems - go bold or go home. 



Accessories are a mermaid's best friend (probably)
