Looking for a new braid style to get you through the summer? Need something to keep you stylish while having fun at festivals? This tutorial will give you a great step by step guide to creating a fun braid-hawk.
Start with hair that is midlength and slightly wavy
Divide the hair into four sections—one section on each side, a Mohawk section and a section in the back.
Release the Mohawk and back sections, and heavily backcomb all of the hair.
Add texture to the hair with a spray, like Avedas control force working it in.
Begin at the hairline, and create a French braid down the back of the head. Braid loosely to maintain volume.
Roll the braid up and under, and hide the ends by tucking them away. Secure with bobby pins.
Gently pull at sections of the braid for a messy effect. Add more spray if more texture if desired.
Create a standard, three-strand braid on the first side section. Wrap braid low and tight around back of the head. Secure with bobby pins at back.
Do the above step for other front piece. Join the ends of the braids and spray with a hairspray to finish the look.
