Let me start off by apologizing for the lack of posts lately. I know I've been slacking. Also excuse the weak post titles. Im obviously not good at naming styles.
I did this style about a week and a half ago and really enjoyed the outcome of it. If you do not know already, I LOVE mohawks. It is def our go-to style when I draw a blank on what to do. I have always wanted to do a mohawk that fell to the side. Here is what we came up with. On clean, detangled hair these are the steps I took to achieve this look.
Products used: shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie, eco styler gel, widetooth comb, pintail comb (for parting), rubberbands dipped in olive oil (for beads and causes less breakage when removing).
2.) I parted a section in the front to braid two cornrows as bangs and lay on the left side (opposite of the way I wanted the mohawk to lay).
3.) I then made a part on the right side of the top portion of the hair so that the mohawk would be right sided instead of straight down the middle.
4.) I had about a total of seven braids per side when I was done. The braids were pretty skinny and since I was going to be adding beads I did not want to weigh each strand down with it so I decided to grab braids across from eachother and twist them together. I did the same with the bangs. This made the strands thicker and I felt better about adding beads to it.
5.) For the remaining bottom section I made six braids diagonally. I did the same to these as well by twisting two braids together.
