Best hair wavers for mermaid hair 

Hailey Bieber is a big fan of the effortlessly glam beachy look

How do I use a mermaid waver?

The mermaid waver tools have been praised for how easy they are to use, though the styler may take some getting used to. Hold a piece of hair between the triple barrels and clamp down for a few seconds to create bouncy waves. For different styles, you can adjust the angle at which you hold the clamp on the hair to switch up your look. 

Remington PROluxe 4-in-1 Adjustable Hair Waver

Remington PROluxe 4-in-1 adjustable waver, £57.99, Boots 


Remington's 4-in-1 hair tool can be adjusted to change the depth of the waver to switch up your styles, allowing you to create crimped waves, loose curls and more - without needing to change the tool's head.

Top review: "Amazingly effective. I love its features - that you can alter the temperature and the depth of the wave. You can also alter the depth of the wave even after the wand has heated up, which is very handy when you change your mind about the depth of wave. The deepest wave took me about 10 minutes to do a whole head of hair and it left me with a really pretty effect!"

Mermade Hair 32mm Pro Hair Waver 

Mermade Hair 32mm Pro Waver, £48.30 (WAS £69), Beauty Bay

Top review: "This is amazing, so easy to use. I have long hair and it creates the most fabulous long-lasting beach waves, but it would work well on short hair too. I've had lots of compliments."

Beauty Works x Molly Mae Hair Waver 

Beauty Works x Molly Mae Limited Edition Hair Waver, £82, Sephora

Top review: "I’ve tried lots of wavers but never found one that is actually a nice size, the wave lasts and your hair doesn’t smell like a smoked bbq! I have shoulder-length blonde hair and this waver absolutely delivered and the waves held easily until the next day! And the clips are cute too!"

The lightweight Amika waver works for everything from tight, crimped waves to voluminous beachy locks. The tool's infrared technology promises to lock in moisture for a smooth, frizz-free finish. 

Top review: "I've been trying the deep waver out and I absolutely love it. It’s so lightweight (I was expecting it to be heavy), and it’s super easy to use. I do love that the heat setting is changeable. I also love that it has a 30-minute auto shut-off (I’m always forgetting to turn my tools off). It’s so easy to section hair, take small sections and clamp for an effortless made an effort look. Highly recommend this product."
