The mohawk is such a cool style, and it shows you mean business. When
you’re not brave enough to go ‘full mohawk’ though, check out this faux
mohawk instead. Using braids and little space buns, you have the
opportunity to create a really edgy look without the need for really
drastic measures … You know, like actually shaving your head. It looks
great on some girls, of course, but we’re not sure we could deal with
the grow-back time. We’re super impatient.

4. Bun + Faux Bangs
Bangs are quite a scary thought, especially if it’s your first time.
We’ve all seen those horrifying pictures and videos on social media
though, haven’t we? You know the ones – someone’s cutting their bangs
and it ends up looking utterly ridiculous, and also usually too short.
Faux bangs are a fabulous way of rocking the look, without actually
having to cut your own hair and risk any mishaps. Simply rock the bun /
top knot look, and leave some free, which you’ll then tease into a
faux-bang look to suit your mood that day. When you’re done with them,
just release, and you’ll have your own non-bangs hair back again. So
simple, so smart!

5. Braid into a Low Bun
When you need a look that does the job and is super simple, this look
ticks all the right boxes. Afro type hair often falls prey to dryness,
and can be left looking frizzy and unkempt. Simple looks like this one
require minimal twisting and turning. They also doesn’t need for
anything too tight that could potentially damage your scalp.
