Dilek Onur-Taylor, 2014 North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) winner for Texture, knows a thing or two about giving her clients seriously unique looks—complete with on-trend techniques, a variety of textures and value-adding tricks. We recently fell in love with this stunning dual texture Mohawk braid she crafted at Premiere Orlando 2015. “This look is fairly simple to create, and it looks great on a blonde,” Dilek notes. Here’s her how-to!

Manufacturer: JCPenney Salon


  • 1

    Section out a Mohawk section at the top, from one corner of the eye to the other and extending to the nape.

  • close formula

    Cornrow two small braids following the Mohawk sectioning.

  • 3

    Micro-crimp the top/center panel and flat iron the sides smooth.

  • 4

     Section the top up and away, and pull the smoothed sides back into a ponytail at the nape.

  • 5

    Create a Fishtail braid with the top section, pulling the braid apart with your hands as you work your way down for a looser look. Incorporate this braid into another ponytail at the base.

  • 6

    Take hair from ponytails and wrap it around the base, gathering more hair as you work.

  • 7

    Secure with a bobby pin in on underside.
