Who knew the Mohawk hairstyle could inspire something so stylish and proper, even? Meet the Mohawk braid, the grown-up, fashionable sister of the classic punky ‘do you grew up seeing in all of the ‘90s stereotype movies. It’s our favorite version, and we enjoyed putting together looks that can totally spice up your style. Below you’ll find super wearable Mohawk braid ‘dos that are edgy but not all-out crazy. We positive you won’t have a hard time pulling them off!
4 Chic ways to wear the Mohawk braid hairstyle
1. Funky & futuristic
If you’re game for a look that has a lot of spunk and character, this Mohawk braid featuring triple plaits and a very sleek ponytail will definitely take your hair game to the next level.
Editor’s tip: You’d need sleek, straight hair to achieve this look—frizz doesn’t have a place in this hairstyle. To control your mane and make sure it’s perfectly straight and gorgeous, use Cream Silk Standout Straight Conditioner after washing with your favorite shampoo. This product with Frizz Defense Complex is specially designed to reduce the frizz and make unruly hair straighter, smoother and more manageable.
2. Small & subtle
Want to keep things sweet and subtle? Then go for something like this. The small Mohawk braid adds a pretty detail to the simple downdo, and the bangs that are split in the middle give the look just the right amount of edginess. If you like wearing your hair down, it keeps the look interesting without going too crazy.
3. Loose & puffy
Here’s a super duper stylish ‘do—a total scene stealer. It can take you to concerts, parties, and other occasions—your hair would totally make an impression! The height of the French braid on top and the messy (but fashionable) tangle of twist braids thrown over one shoulder is a fierce combination that’s definitely straight out of the runway. TONI&GUY Sky High Volume Dry Shampoo is the key ingredient to this look, so don’t skimp on this product when you create the puffy French Mohawk braid on top of your head!
4. Bun, braid & waves
It’s all of our favorite hairstyles in one look: bun, braid, and waves! The details on top adds a funky but cute twist to the regular half-up half-down. The bun is really the star of this Mohawk braid hairstyle so make sure it stays in place all day by giving it a generous mist of TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray.
