How to rock a mod mohawk
It’s surprisingly easy to transform a longish short cut into an edgy punk style.
Make a statement with this mod look
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.
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.
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.
