The Mohawk- Four Hair Styles in One

Monday, March 22, 2010

Stage One

A simple two strand twist.

Stage Two

1. Gather front section of the hair into three equal sections.

– take up the hair lying from the line formed from earlobe to earlobe to the front.

– divide each into three section with the part being at the point where your hairline indents around the forehead.

2. Unplait the section closest to each ear.

3. Have those unplait sections redone into cornrows (canerows).

– depending on your preferences you may want to have these sides cornrowed a bit further back, perhaps this “chart” may help

Stage Three

1. After you finished your cornrows you are pretty much good to go. You can choose to either a) leave the remaining twists flying however to care to, b) pin the twists at the back into a tighter hawk (depends on how far back you decided to do your cornrows) or c) style the front portion of the hawk by pinning it up.

Stage Four

Stage four is like the all out fashionista.

1. Twist out all remaining twists and if you have pin the hair at the back  into a mohawk.

2. The idea is to make this hawk as loud as possible so depending on how long your hair is and how thick and how well the hair sticks up and out, you may need to reinforce the look with a few these

and these

The point is to end up with something like this

Alot of work went into keeping the hair at the top of my head sticking up and out. I actually used a hair comb around that area- reversing it against the fall of the hair so that it braced the hair up.

At some point you may want to sweep it a bit to one side (which is what I prefer) or go the whole mile and have everything up and out.

Making things easier,

    Great style. Thank you for sharing the steps. I absolutely love faux hawks!! It makes me wished I had not cut any of my hair because I would have been more experimental with this style. I may can still do with the length I have. I have not tried.

    The style looks great on you. Keep up the good work. 🙂
