An afro Mohawk, or fro hawk, is a variation on the standard Mohawk because you're not required to shave your head. The hairstyle relies on curly hair at least 5 cm (2 inches) long to achieve the pulling back on the sides and the volume in the Mohawk. An afro Mohawk is both a serious fashion statement and a fun look.
Things you need
- Spray bottle full of water
- Hair grips
Moisten your hair with a spray bottle. You don't want it damp or wet -- just a light mist all over.
Shake out the moisture. You want to make your hair fluffy and fuller.
Grab the hair on the right side of your head and pull straight back just over your ear. Make it taut but not too tight.
Pin the hair to the back of the head with a hair grip that is level with the palm of your hand. Allow about a 6 mm (1/4 inch) of hair to go past the hair grip to make it secure.
Continue to pull back the hair on the right side and add hair grips above and below the first one, creating a line.
Place a hair grip just above the top one in the line. Insert it at a 45-degree angle pointing forward to give volume to the top.
Place one more hair grip at the bottom of the hair grip line. Insert it at a 45-degree angle pointing back for more volume.
Repeat the process on the left side of the head.
Stand back and check the balance of the Mohawk in the mirror. Use extra hair grips if a side sticks out more.
