Step: Blow dry hair on low heat and a low speed with a paddle brush and hands.

Step: Take you mermaid inspired scarf and wrap around you head lightly but twice to get the wide front on it. Tie in a double knot at the back of your head and allow the tails to hang long.

Step: Spray refinish into the lengths of your hair and scrunch for a bit of texture.

Step: Work second day hair into a mid height ponytail, twist the lengths until they are tight then pin hair in a bun.

Step: Pull pieces out in the front. Mist everything with primp.

Step: You will need a large square scarf for this. Fold the scarf into a triangle. Lay the flat side on top of your head. Bring down the side and tie in a knot at the base of your head.

Step: Now work the rest of the scarf up and over the bun to look like a bonnet. Tie another knot at the top of your head. If it does not feel secure push bobby pins through the knot and secure to your head.
