Barbie mermaid braid tutorial looks splashing

Learn how to turn a boring braid into a magical Barbie mermaid tail in this easy tutorial.

The video, made on Valentine's Day this year (February 14), is perfect for crazy hair day at school!

Start off by taking the legs off a Barbie doll and pinning it to the top of your hair, making sure to braid around the Barbie to secure it in place.

To create the mermaid style tail, separate the bottom of the tied hair into two segments and gel into a fishtail shape!
