Fro Hawk Hairstyles
The frohawk is an extremely popular hairstyle among women with natural hair. In addition to being cute and edgy, this hairstyle is also very easy to create. Frohawks look great on any length of hair (short, medium, or long) and any hair texture. The best part is that no two frohawks are exactly alike. There are a variety of ways to style a frohawk, which gives the style a surprising amount of versatility. Creating a frohawk is a relatively simple process and there is more than one way to do it.
1How To Frohawk Your Hair
The ultimate goal is to gather your hair towards the center of your head from front to back. The easiest way to do this is to start by dampening the sides of your hair and applying a gel or pomade to help slick the hair up. Using your hands and/or a boar bristle brush, gently smooth the hair upwards towards the crown of the head and secure with bobby pins. Repeat on the other side. If you decide to use a brush, be very gentle to avoid breakage. The method you choose will ultimately be determined by the exact look you’re going for, your unique texture, and the length of your hair. Here are 40 ways to style a frohawk.
