Braided Mohawk hairstyles are going to be hot this year. Now is the time to have fun with your hair because there is so much diversity in the way people dress and wear their hair. In the nineteen eighties, the new Mohawk hairstyles often caused a stir, particularly those styles that were colored green or pink. Today’s take on the Mohawk hairstyle is a little different from those we saw twenty years ago. Mohawk refers to the Mohawk Native American Indians who were thought to be cannibals by some – the name Mohawk means man eater.
The classic Mohawk where the head is shaved, a strip of hair is left down the middle will be seen around. There are many variations on the Mohawk as with any durable style. The style was originally a man only style but this changed in the 1980s. Now we see members of both sexes wearing dreadlocked and braided Mohawk hairstyles. The braided Mohawk was a dubbed a warrior goddess hairstyle during the recent Dior fashion show – models could be seen wearing different representations of the braided Mohawk.
You may need to visit a salon to get the style right as it is quite awkward to do. If you do want to have a go then make sure you first use products that will make your hair manageable. The style is achieved by sectioning the hair into small pieces across the crown, the hair is then wrapped in thread and the remaining hair at the end of the thread is braided. Each braided section is then connected to each other, forming a long braided section at the top of the wrapped pieces. The wrapped braids began right at the front of the crown and continued back to the nape. Any leftover hair is then braided and looped.
How high you get your braided section depends on how much hair you have, this is the look that people are calling the braided Mohawk hairstyle.
