The curly Mohawk is a faux Mohawk hairstyle designed for naturally curly hair, particularly African hair types. If you'd like to experiment with a punk rock look for a show or a night at the club without committing to a true shaved Mohawk, the curly Mohawk is a good compromise. This hairstyle works best with shoulder-length hair.

  1. 1

    Wash your hair and moisturise it with pomade. Curl your hair with eight hair pins and wrap a bandanna over your hair. Sleep with the bandanna on or wear it for at least eight hours.

  2. 2

    Remove the curlers and fluff your hair out.

  3. 3

    Comb your curls up toward the centre of your head to create a curly Mohawk shape. Your hair should be sleek on the sides with big, curly hair running down the centre of your head.

  4. 4

    Secure your hair in place with hair pins.

  5. 5

    Seal the hairstyle with additional pomade.
