When it comes to mohawks, not all people are ready to go for such a bold hairstyle. That’s why stylists came up with an innovative option called braided mohawks. 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 other ways to go about braided mohawks and all of them are worth a try.
