Every season, there's a new beauty trend that surfaces. Whether it involves makeup or hair, there seems to be many popular fads that come and go.

If you haven't heard of it already, mermaid hair has become a very popular hit lately. Mermaid hair is hair with multiple pastel and/or ocean like colors beautifully blended in. Although the term itself sounds like it's only for long luscious hair, the look can actually be achieved on hair of all lengths (as long as you're not at a pixie cut).

Various hair stylists are becoming well-known for these mermaid looks. It's a hair technique that isn't quite easy to achieve but absolutely beautiful when executed correctly.

Take a look below at one of the most beautiful hair trends of the season. You might be inspired to visit a hair salon in the near future.

Back at it again! I used the new @schwarzkopfusa silver whites to create this look! Thank you @theconfessionsofahairstylist for inspiring me to style and not just do basic curls! I added in #b3 to keep her hair healthy, and as always I used @jbeverlyhills coconut oil, and 5 in 1! ? #americansalon #hairgoals #nikishair #letsberaw #berawstudios #jbeverlyhills #schwarzkopfusa #jbeverlyhills #btconeshot_color16

My M E T A L I C creation! For the Base I used- 7SM + one ribbon of 1N and a few dots of blue booster. I only applied it 1 1/2 inches out of the roots! The Mids I used 8SM with blue booster and I added a generous amount and only applied it about 2 intches out from the root color! As for the ends I used @vividartistichairdesign technique she taught me at her vivids class to create the colorful ends! I used 4 different colors to melt into each other 10Sm with red booster, 8SM with violet booster and @kenraprofessional direct dye In blue mixed with clear, and teal mixed with clear! I let it process for 30-40 minutes then I rinsed and olaplex her hair! I towel dried her hair and went over everything with 10SM with violet booster! It took me 2 days to lighten her hair from virgin black hair to platinum blonde! Patient's is a virtue! All of the colors used were permanent mixed with 7vl, except for the creative kenra colors! Good luck with your METALIC CREATION! #MetallicObsession #GuyTangHairBattle

You think you know #MermaidHair... You have NEVER SEEN #mermaid #hair until now! The very #talented #Connecticut #stylist @prettylittleombre used streaks of #ManicPanic in #AtomicTurquoise, #RockabillyBlue, and #ElectricLizard for this #incredible look. Our #dyes are all #semipermanent, which means that they generally last 4-6 weeks with the proper care. Don't forget that to get #bright, #powerful #colors like this, bleaching is absolutely necessary.
