Mermaid Side Do

This is one of my favorite hairstyle. Mermaid side do goes well with any marriage occasion. I did lace braid at the back following with mermaid braid as a side braid. I think this combination looks glamorous together. I just love how it turned out! So neat! Girls wear this hairstyle and make people a head turner. Jokes apart! But I strongly recommend this hairstyle for sangeet, reception, baby shower, wedding, parties, and festivals.
