Mermaid Waves: How To Achieve Them With No-Heat


Mermaid waves aren’t going anywhere. And, we’re OK with that – after all, who doesn’t want a head of curls captivating enough to lure a ship of sailors to their untimely demise?

Granted, we may not be perching on a rock in the ocean anytime soon (or wearing seashells as a bikini top), but that doesn’t mean we can’t rock the mermaid waves look. There’s just a small matter of practicality – do we really need to spend hours crimping our hair

Well, according to TikTok, there’s actually a far easier way, which doesn’t even use any heat, meaning you don’t have to damage your hair to get a mermaid-worthy look. One TikTok user (@sarasaadia) tested the Willbond spiral hair curlers (available on Amazon) and honestly? We’re kind of obsessed with the results. 

In her first video (which has 15.8M views), Sara says, “I think this is the dumbest thing in my life but, knowing me, I naturally have to try it.” Yep, that’s pretty much our ethos too. 

She then dampens her hair and demonstrates how to use the hair curlers, pulling strands of her hair through each curler using a styling hook. We have to admit, it looks very satisfying.

Although the curlers are meant to be slept in, Sara takes them out after a few hours as they were hurting her head. They do look uncomfortable to sleep in – it has to be said. Sara’s next video shows her removing the curlers and – after a lacklustre first hair strand – the results are impressive: super-defined waves.

Another TikTok user (@laurenwolfe) decided to try out the trend, and her results were even better. Seriously, so satisfying:

While the heatless curlers produce undeniably defined mermaid waves, some TikTok users pointed out that they can be quite painful to sleep in. One commented on Lauren’s video, “I’ve used these, and they do work super well, but how on earth are you SMILING? They hurt like hell!”

However, most people were too busy sharing their appreciation for the look. One fan wrote, “These are so satisfying and the end product is just chefs kiss,” while another commented, “wait i was gonna buy a hair waver but this is so much better.”

If you fancy giving these heatless hair curlers a whirl, they’re currently available on Amazon for £25.13 per packet. You get 30 curlers per packet so if you have extra-long hair it may be worth buying two. 

 Don’t forget to update TikTok with your results!
