When it comes to mohawks, not all women are ready to go for such a bold hairstyle. That’s why hairstylists came up with an innovative new hairstyle called ‘Mohawk braids‘.
Most of the time, this hairstyle doesn’t require you to shave off any hair or even cut it short. The part that is usually bold is braided instead. The effect that you get is almost the same as you would have with shaving.
The braided hair looks short and outlines the rest of the tresses. Usually, people go for making cornrows since they are very tight and give a good short impression. However, there are many ways to try mohawk hairstyles with braids.
Popular Mohawk Braids to Try
Mohawk hairstyles with braids are a great idea for women who are not ready to get rid of their hair but still want a Mohawk. They come in all shapes and sizes and can often be done on your own.
However, it is recommended to ask for a stylist’s assistance when it comes to making cornrows. A braided mohawk is not necessarily a “safe” style. Some people are bold enough to go for shaving the sides and then braiding the top part. In any case, these hairstyles are worth browsing.
