If you love the ocean, the chances are you grew up daydreaming about being a mermaid.

We're not talking Ariel and Disney here. ‘Real’ mermaids were beautiful, mysterious and, according to the myths about sailor’s encounters, a bit badass and dangerous.

Now we’re grown up, we only let our inner mermaid out every time we take to the waves. However this summer, there’s a new hair trend that might change all that.

Heads everywhere are now sporting magical ocean and coral coloured hair. How awesome would it be to spend this summer catching waves with magical mermaid locks?

Here are our favourite colours. We think we're going coral! What colour will you choose?
