Fierce Natural Hair: The Faux Hawk

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:

  1. Spritz the sides of your hair above and behind your ears with water or your favorite leave in.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
