This hairstyle might seem complicated, but actually it is not. There is an easy way to achieve it. You take small sections of hair on each side and secure it with an elastic. Basically, you create a small ponytail. The trick is to split the hair above the elastic in half, take the ponytail and pull it through, but you don’t want to pull it through all the way. Secure the loop with bobby pins if needed. Each ponytail will create a small loop that will ultimately create a gorgeous updo.

2. Black & Green Haircut

Yes, you can rock a faux hawk even if you have short hair. This stunning haircut with green highlights and luscious curls can add an edge to any look.

If you’re looking to add some freshness to your hair, highlights are always a great choice. Green is not the only option – gold, honey, brown or burgundy all work great with black hair. We love everything about this look!

3. Teased French Braid Updo

Want to rock two different styles in one? This hairstyle is for you. Braids alone have some serious ‘wow’ factor, but they are much more jaw-dropping when you combine them with different styles and techniques.

This braided faux hawk is everything but ordinary. The hairstyle would be an excellent choice for weddings and other formal occasions.

4. Natural Hair Frohawk

Embrace your natural hair with this gorgeous faux hawk. Start by sectioning the front of your hair in a triangle shape. Secure it with a hair clip. Take another section of the hair and tie it in a ponytail. Repeat with the rest of your hair. Unclip the front section, and there it is, your new favorite hairstyle is ready!

5. Braided Sides Faux Hawk

Here’s another way to rock a faux hawk for our ladies with long hair. Obviously, the hairstyle is not an everyday style, but it’s a perfect combination of edginess and elegance. The top section of the head is curled and each curl is rolled and set with a bobby pin. These ‘rolled curls’ give this hairstyle a vintage feel while the braided sides make the top section pop even more.

Messy, braided updos are best! For this look, all you need is some braiding skills, a few bobby pins and elastics, and some hairspray. Dutch braid is basically a inside out French braid. So, if you know how to do a classic French braid, you will easily master this style, too. This updo is both classy and edgy, and that’s why we love it so much!
