A ‘fauxhawk’ usually refers to hair that’s been combed up in the middle section and slicked back at the sides to give the impression of a mohawk – sans the need for any shaving. But here we have a unique take is something else entirely: it’s tough, careless, but still feminine. In a way, it’s almost a cross between a mohawk and a topknot. Sound crazy? It probably is, but only in the best of ways.
- ear to ear closer to front hairline
- ear to ear across centre of crown
- ear to ear across occipital bone
You should have hair left over at the bottom as the fourth section.
Tip: secure the sections with clips to make them easier to manage.
This will cover the two bottom hair elastics and create a base line of the mohawk.
Tip: back comb each section with your fingers for more texture and support. Do this before making knot chains.
