This hairstyle ROCKS. Seriously. And I’m doing this tutorial because it was requested, but let me just say that I have never tried doing a mohawk personally, nor have I found any good instructions, so this is going to be based on my own instincts. I also have no idea what’s going on on the other side of her hair, so I’m basically going to guess. If more pictures come out, I’ll make changes if necessary. Let’s do this!
Step 1: Start with clean, dry hair. Don’t worry about the part for now.
Step 2: Lightly flatiron all of your hair. On the top section, twist the iron a little bit to get some wave in the middle (I’m not talking about curling here.)
Step 3: Divide your hair into 3 clean sections:
#1: Top section - stretching from the outer edge of one eye to the other, make the parts straight backwards
#2: Middle section - about 1” above each ear, make a part diagonally upwards
#3: All of the hair below
Step 4: Secure each section with a clip. You’ll return to them later.
Step 5: Take the middle section on each side and divide it in 2. Tightly french braid each section and secure well with pins at the back of the head
Step 6: Gather all of the hair in the bottom section along with the rest of the hair coming out from the braided sections and pull them into a very tight, smooth ponytail. Secure with an elastic and more pins if necessary.
Step 7: What you do with the top section depends on your hair length. If you have short enough hair like Perrie, take your flatiron and iron the section in a backwards motion. Then tease and use liberal amounts of hairspray to secure in a mohawk formation. If you have long hair that will hang over too much, you can twist it (like this) with a roller and pin. Just an idea. In this picture, her hair is short so it’s just sprayed back.
Step 8: Seal all of it with more hairspray
That’s it! Kind of intimidating, I know, but such a cool idea to try out in your spare time. Good Luck!
