Bun Mohawk

This bun Mohawk is one of my favorite African American kids hairstyles yet! It all happened because Bunny’s freshly washed, conditioned, detangled, and stretched hair was starting to tangle up really badly and I really needed to tie it down somehow or another.

You make this into a ten minute hairstyle even, if you left out the cornrows in the front and did more buns instead, it’s all up to you!

For braiding the hair you’ll need:

  • Rat tail comb
  • Wide tooth comb
  • Hair moisturizer
  • Hair clips to section hair
  • Ponytail Holders
  • Bobby Pins

To begin, I parted out a rectangle shape for the side cornrows. I did three cornrows in all and used fifteen beads, four on the first braid, five on the second, and six on the very last one.

Before I smoothed her edges down or pinned her hair under

After that I pulled the rest of her hair pack into three ponytails stacked on top of each other. I used a little moisturizer and my Denman brush to smooth back her edges.

When smoothing down edges remember to be as gentle as possible so you don't cause breakage!

The back of her 'do

I finished this hairstyle by taking a section of hair, rolling it up, and pinning it down with a booby pin on each side. Easy!

Overall she really loves her hairstyle and people kept complimenting her 'do! This may just be our new fallback hairstyle, who knows?
