If there's one thing that Krysta the mermaid adores more than jewellery it's her long, blonde hair; it's her crown and glory. She combs and cares for it every day and can't stand for it to be messed up. Then comes her sixteenth birthday. Her parents give her a jewellery set but it comes with a condition – she has to find her soul mate within a week or she will lose her hair. Krysta's determined to find him. On the first day she meets Mr Scruffy, the second day she meets Mr Smelly. The third day encounters Mr Too-Fussy. On the fourth day, she meets Mr Paranoid, and it makes her realise that some of the mermen's faults are hers, too. When this dawns on her, she gets to see a shadow of what her soul mate looks like. She decides to start to change he ways and feels her hair beginning to grow again.
It's the final day of the quest. She meets Mr Liar, and realises that she has lied to all the mermen she has met, only to get away from them. So when she finally meets her love, Logan, she tells him the truth about her and is a better mermaid as she helps him with his rescuing job. Her hair has grown back to its long and shiny length once more, but Krysta now knows that there's more to life than thinking about her hair – her love and a career.
