Sometimes the hairstyles we admire the most are the looks we don’t actually have the guts to get—take short mohawk haircuts, for instance. Get this: You don’t have to do away with your length to create the look. The frohawk (a.k.a. a fauxhawk for natural-haired gals) is such a great way to replicate the mohawk hairstyle without having to shave the sides of your hair.

The frohawk is a look specifically created for natural hair textures because of the hair’s ability to be fluffed up and styled into a ‘fro. When it comes to nailing the Afro effect, the bigger, the better. Give this fun look a go on your natural hair using this simple tutorial!

Frohawk On Natural Hair: How to Create the Look

1

Refresh hair with a conditioning mist.

To begin the frohawk style, gently spritz your hair with Nexxus New York Salon Care Lightweight Conditioning Mist to add moisture to your hair before styling.

2

Divide hair into four sections.

Starting at the back of your head, create your first section for your frohawk by creating a ponytail and securing with a hair elastic. Continue this method until you’ve reached the front of your hair.

3

Fluff your ponytails.

Fluff each ponytail of your frohawk to separate your curls and give them a boost of volume and an Afro effect.

4

Apply oil.

Use Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil to finish off your look. Squirt 2 to 3 pumps of product into your hands, then work the oil through your hair.

5

Done!

If needed, you can set your style with a holiding spray like TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Hairspray for a flexible hold. You’re all set!
