Neäl & Wølf | Get The Look Mermaid Waves

Neäl & Wølf are a brand that I haven't heard much about but after doing a little research I have found out that they are a professional hair care range that combines the ultimate in product excellence with the ultimate in glamour. The brand was created by Neil Capstick; having worked in the hair industry for over 20 years, he has used his extensive experience and understanding of professional salons his debut range of products.
They asked if I would like to recreate one of their looks. As I am loving braids at the moment I decided to recreate the Mermaid Waves. They sent me three products to help with the creation of this look; Sculpting Lotion*, Volumising Lotion* and Flexible Styling Hairspray*.
These products feel very luxurious and have a lovely scent to them which made my hair smell amazing!

First I washed my hair with my usual shampoo and conditioner. I then towel dried it and applied the 
Sculpting Lotion*. I ran this through my hair but I made sure I avoided my roots. I then used a hairdryer to finish of drying it, which helped give it texture and hold.
The Sculpting Lotion offers a light to medium hold and allows you to style while caring for your hair. It also retains moisture and prevents sun damage with UV protection, which is perfect for the summer time!

Next I used the Volumising Lotion* and like before I applied it through my hair, avoiding the roots. This is meant to improve the body and texture while enhancing shine and manageability. It has special selected ingredients to complete the effect, which helps reduce static and adds a spectacular glossy finish.
This is a great product to use if you have slightly thinner hair but as my hair is super thick already, id didn't notice much of a difference.

Lastly I used the Flexible Styling Hairspray*. This is such an amazing hairspray. It kept the plait and waves in my hair for the duration of the evening and didn't make my hair feel crispy. Also in the morning, I was still left with a lovely wave to my hair which is a bonus.

I was surprised at how easy the braid was to recreate. It's basically a french braid but you only take a a piece of hair from the side of your parting, working your way back and down your hair. To secure the braid you can add a bit of hairspray and back comb it or you can use a clear hair elastic, which I did.
For the waves, I used my babyliss curling wand and used it to create loose waves in the rest of my hair.
I really liked how this look turned out and I can see myself having my hair like this a lot.

Tweet me at @emgraceblog if you recreate this look! I'd love to see!
