Be a mermaid just like the ones at the aquarium.

Our very own “Sea Grass” apprentices can turn you into a magical mermaid with make-up, hair extensions and nail color. 

Choose your hairstyle then add make-up, nail color, accessories and a mermaid tail, if your heart desires. Then let the Sharp Shooter team commemorate this most magical of moments with a keepsake photo.

And boys can join in on the fun too, as our “Sea Grass” apprentices transform them into heroic mermen!
