Create a cool fohawk by pinning back the sides of your thick curly hair. To create the slicked back sides, start by using your fingers to comb back your hair. Then, to get a sleek look, use a boar bristle brush to catch any little hairs that may pop out and pin into place. We love that this look can be done with plain bobby pins or fun clips! Lock in your cool new hairstyle by using some of the TRESemmé Curl Locking Styling Spray.
