1How To Do Mohawk Braids
There are several different ways you can create and style Mohawk braids.

The braids can also feed into a single, chunky braid down the middle. Another popular way to style Mohawk braids is to take the ends of the braids (or twists) and arrange them into mini buns for a fun “faux hawk” style.
