DIY Mermaid hair

My friend Harriet and I spent yesterday 'mermaiding' our hair. I might get round to making my own tutorial video, but in the mean time here is a good video that is pretty good at explaining the 4-strand plait/braid.

When we were in London Harriet and I went to Pepi's, a hairdressers in Camden (it's incredible there) and got our hair dreadlocked and braided with synthetic hair. We loved it so much that the next day we decided to buy colourful synthetic hair and found a small shop in Brixton that sold hundreds of colours for only £1 each! We bought a couple and decided to have a go at it ourselves. So yesterday we had a go at 4-strand braiding with the synthetic hair, how cute is it?
