HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Create horizontal subsections in the back and on each side. Wrap each subsection on a 1/2-inch curling iron, directing the hair downward. Remove the iron and clip each curl into place.

  • 2

    In the top mohawk section, create vertical subsections and curl the hair by placing the iron on top of each section. Continue clipping each curl into place.

  • 3

    When the hair is completely cool, remove the clips and flip the hair forward. Comb through with a wide-tooth comb.

  • 4

    After the curls are blended, flip the head up and finish with firm-holding hairspray.
