Braided Bantu Mohawk

Bantu knots are a hair twisting method where two strands of hair are twisted to make a braid like structure. The twisted braid is then rolled on itself into a bun. The bun is then released after some time, to achieve a curly and puffy hair effect. After applying a double sided braided Mohawk, divide the center section of the hair into Bantu knots. The number of Bantu knots depends on how curly you want your hair to be. Use more knots for a curlier effect.

Braided Twisted Mohawk

Similar to the Bantu Mohawk but instead of making your own Bantu knots just curl the middle section using rollers to achieve your curly effect. Twist outs are less curly then Bantu knots and work better for longer hair. It gives your hair a more wringlet appearance.

Center Braided Mohawk

With this variation only the center section is braided but the sides are left unbraided. It’s easier for black girls who don’t want to do cornrow braid their hair. These styles can also be merged with the double sided Mohawk to achieve a full braided effect.

Braided Mohawk Buns

This style is the both easy and fast. Styling hair in cornrows is not required to achieve this look. Simply section your hair into desired amount of buns starting from the top center of your head to the top bottom.  After fixing the hair using suitable hair products, get braided hair extensions and wrap them around each individual bun, to create a Mohawk bun.

One Sided Braided Mohawk

One sided braided styles are perfect for black girls with loose curls. Only one side of the hair is cornrow braided. The remainder of the hair is left to hang loosely. To prevent the cornrows from unraveling, tease the ends of the cornrow braids. Additionally you can hairspray the braided ends to seal them in place.
