DIY: Braided Mohawk
Summer is the time for short, sexy skirts and long nights of laughter and party hopping with friends. Whether your preference is pubs or clubs, fancy dinners or dive bars, spicy salsa sounds, rock rhythms, or twerk-tastic beats, one thing is for certain - you always look fresh! You are used to receiving compliments on the regs for your bold and unique, choices from hair to heels, and have established a reputation for being a rose amongst dandelions, always standing out from the crowd and turning heads. When the questions pertaining to what to wear or how to style hair arises for your girlfriends, they always consult your expertise, and sometimes even your closet, in order to ensure, that like you, they will dress to impress. They also always vote you the clique "Carrie" without hesitation, while playing the "Which Sex and the City character are you most like?" game, because of your out of the box, flawless, fashion statements. In short - you are the crew's fashionista, and while your excellent taste maybe inherent, people fail to realize that living up to this expectation isn't always easy. I'm sure if Carrie Bradshaw was not a fictional character, even she would require the occasional flats and sweatpants day.
One problem with being considered the crew's trendsetter is trying to come up with a stylish, original look, on short notice. How can one achieve a red carpet ready look, in a matter of minutes? Well, you don't have to allow the pressure of time constraints to hinder your creativity, at least not when it comes to your hair. Check out this great how too styling video I found for this gorgeous Braided Mohawk style! I have to admit, I was totally intimidated by the intricate appearance of this hairstyle, but it is actually not complicated at all and can be accomplished in a matter of minutes. Best done on medium to long lengths and great for all curly textures, this style emulates that of Selena Gomez's look at the MTV Movie Awards. If your objective is to stay cool while looking hot this summer, I highly suggest you give this style a try.
What you need:
- Gentle Ponytail Holders
- Synthetic Braiding Hair (Optional- however this is great for extra volume and length!)
- Miss Jessie's Curly Buttercreme (To style and smooth out hairline edges)
