REVISITING THE MOHAWK

16:03




Hello sweeties! This time I want to show you a different way to wear a mohawk. 
As you may know, a mohawk (or mohican haircut) is an hairstyle when you shave your sides and you leave just a strip of hair in the center of the head from the forehead to the nape. Today I made a curly faux hawk (or frohawk), a really similar mohawk where you don`t have to shave your sides and the hair down the center of the head is curly. This is a perfect hairstyle for me because my sides are safe and I have a lift up face effect because of the side braids. 
If you want to know how to achieve the curly faux hawk, keep reading!

Ciao dolcezze! Questa volta voglio condividere con voi un modo alternativo di portare il mohawk. Come saprete, il mohawk (o taglio alla moicana) e` un taglio di capelli dove si rasano i lati della testa e si lascia una singola striscia di capelli nella parte centrale a partire dalla fronte fino alla nuca. Oggi ho realizzato un curly faux hawk (o frohawk), una versione del taglio alla moicana dove non bisogna per forza tagliare i lati della testa e i capelli nella parte centrale sono ricci. Questa e` una pettinatura perfetta per me perche` i miei lati sono protetti e ottengo un leggero lifting facciale grazie alle trecce laterali. 
Se volete sapere come realizzare il curly faux hawk, continuate a leggere!




 
First thing I washed my hair and then I cornbraided the left and right side of my head. You girls have to options: 1) do corn braids like me or 2) take a strand of hair from the side, lift it up to the point where you want the strip of hair to start and pin it with bobby pins. You can help yourself with some hair gel before pin it to help keep the hairstyle throughout the day.  Repeat this action until there`s no more loose strands on both side.

Per prima cosa mi sono lavata i capelli e in seguito ho realizzato le trecce aderenti al lato destro e sinistro della testa. Avete due opzioni in questo caso:  1) fare delle treccine aderenti come me oppure 2) prendere le ciocche di capelli piu` vicine all`orecchio, alzarle e portarle verso il centro e fissarle con delle forcine. Potete anche applicare un po` di gel per capelli alla ciocca prima di fissarla con le forcine per una migliore tenuta durante la giornata. Ripetete quest`azione finche` non ci sono piu` ciocche sciolte ai lati. 





After the braids I did some braided bantu knots on the central part of the head.

Dopo le trecce ho fatto  alcuni braided bantu knots nella parte centrale della testa.




This is the braided bantu knot out effect on my dry hair.

Questo e` l`effetto braided bantu knot out sui capelli asciutti.




And that`s the final result. What do you think about it? Have a nice weekend girls!

E questo e` il risultato. Che cosa ne pensate? Buon fine settimana ragazze!

  7. It also shows off your profile and you have a really nice profile. It reminds too of this cool barber shop in the city all us alternative kids would go to get the sides of our heads shaved and then we head back to suburbia and shock all our high school classmates! Haha.

    1. Ahahah! Once I did it too because of the "Rihanna short hair fever". you know 2008/09 when every black teenager started to emulate Rihanna`s hair with terrible results! I shaved everything on the back and sides, leaving just a side fringe. Oh my god: that was weird! :) Luckily know I think twice before shaving or cutting my head!!
