One of the awesome things I can do since going back to my natural hair is trying out styles that I simply couldn’t do before! I feel like a product junkie in Sephora, wanting to try everything and the faux hawk is no different. My hair is finally long enough to really give it a go (thank you pregnancy hormones!) and as I scoured the web for ideas, I was really happy to see there is more than one way to get your hawk on! Achieving the basic look is super easy:
- Spritz the sides of your hair above and behind your ears with water or your favorite leave in.
- Apply a gel, like Shea Moisture’s Curling Souflee, and slick the sides up to the desired height of the faux hawk. Sometimes I use a brush to help me but your hands can work just as well.
- Secure with clips and bobby pins and fluff up the top
No matter how you do it though, it automatically gives you a sassy kinda of swag that begs for ridiculously big earrings, a leather jacket, and something studded. You can’t help but feel like a rock star! Here’s some more inspiration for ya!
