We don’t know about you, but we love the faux hawk look! When you have curly hair, getting this look is even easier (lucky us!) The great part about a faux hawk is that you can rock the edgy look without committing to it full-time. A faux hawk can be appropriate for a night on the town with your friends or even for a sophisticated date night. Some curlies have even opted to wear a faux hawk for some of their fancier life events, such as weddings! It’s easy to customize your faux hawk to make it as classy or as edgy as you’d like. Here’s how you can get your very own curly girl faux hawk look :
1. With freshly shampooed and conditioned curls, add in a curl defining product. You can also create this look with second or third day curls by spritzing them with a curl refreshing spray. Once the product is applied, divide your curls into 5 sections. Plop your curls or allow them to air dry in the sections. To begin styling, spritz with water and add a shine serum.
2. Twist, then pin back the side sections, using your fingers to manage flyaways or loose pieces. You can add more product as needed to help create your own individualized faux hawk.
3. Create your faux hawk. Spritz the middle section of your curls with water. You might want to use some more curl defining cream to help manage your individual curls. To complete the look, shape your curls with your fingers and help fluff them up. Once you’ve got the curls defined, you can style them as you like. For a chicer look, puff the curls up. For a more edgy look, you can keep your curls more defined.
