Types of Mohawk Braid Hairstyles
1. Braided Mohawk Updo
If you want your hair completely out of your way, a braided Mohawk Updo is what you should go for. This look it’s a little bit more complicated to achieve, but I can assure you, it’s one that will stand out. You can wear this look to fancy parties or even red-carpet events.
2. One Side Braided Mohawk
This one is super easy to achieve, all you have to do is to braid on one of the sides and boom, you have a look casual but edgy in the same time.You can wear this on a laid back Sunday.
3. Mohawk braids with shaved sides
The style itself involves shaving the sides and if you feel brave enough you totally can. Your look will always be on the edgy, bad-ass side. The best way to go about it is to have African braids done. But, if a lot of small braids are not really your style, then just go with a big one on the middle.
Go for shaved side only, if you want keep it for a long time. Once you shave the sides, you can not change your hairstyle soon. And if you want change your hairstyle again, you need to wait long time to grow your hair again.
4. The Braided Mohawk Weave
This one is for my ladies out there that need a lot of volume and texture in their hairstyle. Yes, you can have a braided Mohawk with a weave in the front done, or even have some extra volume in the initial braid. I have to say that this type of look is for events only.
5. The Mohawk cornrows
This is one of those types of hair style that not everyone can wear because it will only look good on somebody with a symmetric face and the right attitude.
6. Braided Mohawk on black hair
As good as they look on blonde hair. If you want to wear this hairstyle you don’t really need to worry about the color of your hair, instead you need to have long hair. If you don’t, well, we live in the 21st century and extensions will be your best friend.
7. Add a bun
You can add new elements to this hair style, like a bun. This will give it an effortless feel to the look and is perfect to wear on an everyday basis.
8. Volume & some Curls with the Mohawk style
Instead of having a wave into your hairstyle, how about adding some curls? Just curly your hair before you start braiding and follow the steps in the begging of the post.
9. Even more Mohawk braid styles
As I said in the begging, the possibilities are endless when it comes to Mohawk hairstyle. It’s all up to you where you want to wear it and how much time or money you want to invest in your look. Make sure you always match the hairstyle with the clothing you wearing and the event you’re going.
