Make a state­ment with this mod look

1

Work a vo­lu­mis­ing mousse or lo­tion through your hair when it’s damp. With an in­dex fin­ger at each tem­ple, draw two di­ag­o­nal part­ings to­wards a point at the crown. Dry this sec­tion first. Blast it with a dryer, point­ing the noz­zle up and away from the roots.

2

Pull strands of hair up with your fin­gers for max­i­mum lift, says hair­styl­ist Nun­zio Sa­viano. Once this area is dry, make the rest of your hair sleek by blow-dry­ing it in small sec­tions. Use your fin­gers to guide the hair into the shape you want to cre­ate. Smooth to­wards the back on the sides.

3

Now it’s time to shape your mo­hawk: with a R5-coin-size blob of po­made or gel rubbed be­tween your hands. Keep your hands in an in­verted V shape – push the front sec­tion up and away un­til the hair forms a side-swept mo­hawk. Use the left­over po­made to slick back the sides.
