The Modified Girly Mohawk- A Tutorial

The Modified Girly Mohawk- A Tutorial
by Nik G of

My daughter has been asking for a mohawk for months so I decided to pull some inspiration from our Facebook page and give her a cute, girly mohawk updo. She absolutely loves it! I think it’s an adorable style for little girls, especially with cute Spring dresses. Jazz it up with a bow or hair pins and you’re good to go!

The style is actually very simple so I’ll try to keep the instructions short.
Miss A’s hair was previously moisturized and banded so her hair was already stretched out quite a bit. If you’re not into banding, you can completely skip this step. If you don’t know what banding is, please check out our Banding F.A.Q. post.
I began by parting the hair from ear to ear. I tied off the back so I could easily work with the top section. Using a metal rat tail comb, I made a slanted square. I tied off the middle section so I could cornrow the left and right sections. If you do not know how to cornrow, please check out our Cornrowing for Beginners post. Flat twists would look just as adorable. I didn’t want too much going on with this style so I kept the cornrows pretty basic. Just going straight up the sides.
After cornrowing both sides, I untied the top middle section and parted medium sections of hair with my fingers. I grabbed a black ouchless band and loosely tied off about 8 sections. I two strand twisted each section and left them overnight. I untied the back of her hair and did the same thing. I knew she didn’t need cornrows in the back because her hair is so thick so the little cinnabuns would have covered them.
The next morning I removed the two strand twists, leaving the ouchless ponytail holders in. I gathered each section and wrapped it around each ponytail holder. I used a bobby pin to secure each little bun. I tried to make the buns kind of loose. I wanted a really full updo.
As for products, I used Bee Mine Luscious Moisturizer to moisturize and Bee Mine Curly Butter to style. We still have a reader discount code, good through the end of March. The code is BBBJAN for 10%

    Love this! My girls don't have NEARLY as much hair, but hoping it turns out well either way.

    This is absolutely the prettiest little girl hairstyle I have seen!

  • Micheal says:

    I have to try this on my daughters hair. She always ask for a mohawk, but they styles I have seen are too bold for a little girl. This is soft and perfect for an angel.

    That is a really cute hairstyle. One thing – her hair looks dry, mom should moisturize it a bit.

    This will be my daughter's hair style for Easter.

  • Erica says:

    Absolutely perfect. Great for school pictures, graduation, flower girl, etc. She looks so beautiful in her dress too. You can tell Baby Girl is so happy about her fly hair and dress (lol). I'm like everyone else, I may need to try an adult version of this style for the summer!

  • Candace4life says:

    That hair style came out so pretty. I might try that on myself, but I will need to practice cornrowing my hair before I can really get the style to come out like this :). Also I pray that the doctors find out whats causing your daughter to have the seizures. Take care and know that your family is in my prayers.

  • DiscoveringNatural says:

    This is totally cute.. I've been thinking of Easter hair styles.. might try doing this one.

  • Blogging Mama says:

    This little girl always has the cutest hair. I hope my baby will have plenty of hair to do some of the styles her mom does. With my luck she is going to be born bald headed. lol Praying she will have lotsa hair to play with and for her to have the patience with me to let me do her hair in the future…

  • Chela says:

    @kwm537 – 1,2,3 Jinx! Lol. Great minds think alike!

  • Chela says:

    This style is so adorable! I might have to do the adult version of this later this week :-).
