Nicholas Penna Jr, owner/lead stylist of SalonCapri in Boston presents his spring 2014 trend forecast, with hair styles inspired by some of the hottest looks from the catwalks of New York Fashion Week. Amongst them is an intricate, basket-weave bun with intertwining pieces of hair formed into a breathtaking updo; a new kind of braid—peek a boo style; and what we would like to call an “un-braided” mermaid tail. Here Penna shows you how to re-create the mermaid tail.

STEP 1: Prep roots with L’Oreal Professionnel True Grip Texturizing Powder.

STEP 2: Begin by loosely braiding one or two small sections behind ear. Then twist main portion of hair, and pin to back of head. Make sure to add volume to crown of head by backcombing, and gently tugging upwards with a fine-tooth comb.

STEP 3: Loosely braid hair, incorporating the one or two tight braids you created. To create a messier look, gently pull sections of hair out to hang loose.

STEP 4: Secure bottom with a hair elastic. Finish with a coat of Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer Finishing Spray.
