Instructions

  1. 1

    Use your comb to section your hair into three vertical sections:right, middle and left. Each vertical section should start from the front of your head to the back of your head.The right and left section should be equal in width.

  2. 2

    Hold hair from the middle section with the scrunchy.

  3. 3

    Braid the right and left sections of hair in small or large cornrows horizontally toward the middle section of hair. End each cornrow just before the middle section of your head.

  4. 4

    Cornrow the hanging hair on the left and right sections toward the back of your head.

  5. 5

    Braid the middle section of your hair into medium-large cornrows in a vertical direction; start at the front of your head and braid to the back of your head.

  6. 6

    Cut a 25-inch piece of hair weaving thread. Thread the needle so it hangs even from the needle in two pieces, and then tie the ends of the pieces together in a knot. Repeat the process when you run out of thread.

  7. 7

    Gather the hanging braids, from the middle and side sections, that are laying on the nape of the neck. Twist them together and fold them up so they are laying flat on the middle section, and then sew them down with the needle and thread.

  8. 8

    Start at the front of your head and lay the tracks of the curly weave horizontally on the vertical cornrows from the sides and middle section.

  9. 9

    Sew along the track from left to right with the needle and thread. Use the scissors to cut the track just before the side section.

  10. 10

    Continue to lay and sew the tracks of the weave until you reach the back of your head.

  11. 11

    Use your fingers to loosen the curls of your Mohawk.

Tips and warnings

  • To simplify the process of installing the curly weave, use hair bonding glue instead of sewing.
  • Have a professional stylist to braid the hair on the sides of the Mohawk into a unique design.
  • Sew the weave tracks closer together to get a fuller look.
