Look Like A Mermaid

I remember doing this to my hair when I was a tween, oh-so-long-ago...  Well, it seems that sleeping with braids is back!  If you wait long enough, everything comes back.  Does that mean we should hold on to our wardrobe for some future use?  I actually saved some of my "unique trendy" clothing and shoes for my daughter when she is old enough to wear them.  Hopefully the timing will be right and they will be in style for her.  Do you remember Justin cowboy boots {popular in the 90's}?  I put those away for her.  Silly, huh?  Or, she can just stare at them and ponder how I could have worn that stuff!  Anyway, to get this look, which was used for Diane Von Furstenburg's Spring 2010 show, sleep on damp braids overnight.  For the runway, they used cornrows and for timing purposes, used a flatiron to press and set the plaits (not exactly sure what that means).  No product was used in her hair.  Very pretty!

I just found a picture of me with some 90s hair LOL.
This is really pretty. I might have to try it!

She is pretty and strangely young and mature at the same time...

Very pretty. I love the "over-the-top" runways. So inspiring. Hope you are well.

Oh how I love mermaids. And it is so funny how trends come and go. My mom laughs @ things and just says "wow I remember wearing those" ;)

Am I old or what, cause I´ve started to remember all the trends that are coming nowadays? My daugters love the 80´s, I can´t agree less...
And greetings from very very snowy Finland...Is it possible to drown in snow, it´s near here!

I remember doing that to my hair too, although I'm sure I'm too old for the trend this time around.

I remember doing that as well, I just didn't like how the bottom of my hair was always so straight.

I have saved some of my fun clothing from the past to share with my kids later on also! They are mostly things either my grandma made me or that were purchased on trips.

I would rock the mermaid look if I could get mine to look like that! Mine would look more like Marge from the Simpson's!
