It has five hair colors in even chunks throughout it starting with pink on top, then purple, then silver, then blue, then turquoise. The silver into blue transition is very subtle.


15. Colorful Layered Pixie

White-blonde as a base color makes it easy to lay lots of colors on top. You can’t see much of the base here thanks to the mermaid-style colors.

Purple is the most prominent in this hair, with hints of blue oblong with it. The bangs are very pink.


16. Two Tone Bob

19. Wavy Pink Long Bob

Most of the hair is pink, but there’s some purple in the bangs and towards the end of the hair to add some depth to the nice little look.

This is another subtle style where the hair is short and wavy and perfect for everyday wear. 


20. Turquoise Undercut

The brown is visible in the roots and on one side where there’s an undercut. It’s an edgy style that still has the mermaid vibe to it, so it suits a unique personality wonderfully. This hair is a blend of a vivid turquoise and a natural brown.


How many of these styles did you fall in love with? It’s easy to fall in love with all 20, but you have to pick just a few to try out over the next few months or years.

Your hair can only handle so much dye, so you really have to be sure about the mermaid hair color you want. You’ll also need to work hard to maintain this hair and keep it vibrant with no roots showing.
