How to Create a Mohawk for Women by Russell Mayes

In this tutorial, learn how to create a mohawk hairstyle for women using scissors and a razor to add texture and dimension to natural hair. Mohawks generally have a hard and edgy look and are reserved for those who want to make a fashion statement. Mohawks are characterized by very short sides and a strip of longer hair running down the middle of the head. The longer hair can be styled into spikes that stick up using hair spray or hair gel to keep the hold or left more natural.

But not all mohawks need spikes. There are various mohawk hairstyles. They can be short or long or wide and narrow.  But in this video, we’ll guide you through each step of the process, focusing on achieving balance between edgy and feminine for this girls hawk style.

Russell strategically used scissor over comb with the Jatai Tokyo Thinning Scissors to crop the sides which ensures a soft fur like texture. On the top section, he introduces the Feather Styling Razor, a versatile tool that allows for precise texturizing and softening of the hair. By gently razoring the ends and channel texturizing, he enhances the natural movement and flow of the mohawk. For hair styling, Russell makes it a bit softer by adding some curl and hairspray to keep the hold. You can make it an extra curly mohawk for a more feminine feel.

For those DIYers, there’s no using masking tape here. This is the right way to cut a mohawk.

This tutorial offers valuable insights into creating an updated pretty mohawk that exudes sophistication, class, charm and an edgy style all at the same time. Also, read the Trend Connect article around this hairstyle.
