Now that my hair is short again, I'm on the hunt for fun braided styles I can still pull off. This twist on a faux hawk is my latest go-to style. It's super easy to do, all you need is a few products and the ability to do a dutch braid!
Here is what you will need:
-Comb for making parts
-Clear elastic ties
Step 1: Using your comb, part hair at the top of your head (on both sides) gathering all of the hair that will be in the braid. Use dry shampoo to add volume to top and sides.
Step 2: Tie off rest of hair to stay out of your way. Start your dutch braid at the front of your head, making it tight and adding in sections as you braid backward down the center of your head. Continue the braid two inches past your last section so when you pancake (or pull your braid loose) you will have more to work with.
Step 3: Using two fingers on each hand, start at the front of your head and begin to pull at your braid. This will give you a "fat braid" look as well as give your crown volume. When it is the size you like, take out the elastic and put it back in at the end of your crown. Do not pull all the way though, use elastic tie to start your top knot style.
