How to get Mermaid hair in 10 seconds

I've never really had the experience of having long flowing hair; my hair grows quickly but never downwards - always outwards making it far easier for me to keep it at a medium length. When it comes to my hair I'm all about fuss free maintenance - easy styles like a quick bun, natural waves, an easy ponytail or the most adventurous of all - straightened hair! So, when the lovely people at Hot Hair offered me the chance to try out having a swishing long ponytail I was definitely up for the 'long hair experience' 

The mermaid ponytail is among a range of pony tail styles that you simply click in to instantly change your hairstyle. As a complete extension/hairpiece newbie I was worried it would be difficult to put into my hair but it literally couldn't be easier. The mermaid ponytail comes with a clip that slots in just above your normal pony tail and you simply wrap a small section of the hair, which is already separated for you around the ponytail to conceal the join. Then all you need to do is use a bobby pin clip or 2 (also supplied) to secure the wrap around. It literally takes 10 seconds to put into your hair and it's such a fun and easy way to change up your style. 

The shade I tried was 'strawberry blonde' and I have naturally dark blonde hair - this was a pretty good match for me; the only thing that would have made it even better would be to have less of the brightest blonde streaks - but this really wasn't an issue. I love the ponytail is already styled, adding tonnes of volume and thick luscious curls and waves to your ponytail. You could also plait the ponytail or even do a fish-braid which is something that those of us with medium/short hair miss out on! It's definitely a cool concept and awesome if you want to play around with hair styles but have minimal fuss and effort involved - all the hard work is already done for you. 

The mermaid ponytail retails for £25, and as long as you take good care of it and store it safely there should be no problems in this lasting you for ages - there's a full care information section on the site too, which I found super handy as an extension newbie! It is synthetic - so you can't use any heat on it, but as the hair is already styled you really don't need to do anything. So what do you think? Would this be something you would use?
