Braided Faux Hawk

I must say I love the look of mo hawks on little boys especially, why the have intricately cute designs in them... But I would never cut His hair again, so the next best thing? A Faux Hawk..... It could be as simple or creative as you would like..
His hair started off looking like this. Since i really wasn't planning on doing it I didn't wash it as i usually do but just attacked it with my usual arsenal of products and supplies

  • Baby Don't be Bald
  •  Cantu Leave in Shea Butter
  •  Soft Pretty and Free
  • Rat Tail Combs
  • Hollywood Brand Rubber Bands
  • Hard Brush

This is what his fro looked like after a dry detangling. If you're not use to combing out your children's hair I would suggest, detangling it with a product to help lesson up the knots, unless, that's the look your going for, and I wanted a fro.

I have to say I was a little bit excited about the size of his fro

First i started off with his hair sectioned into 4 ponytails, with a part down the middle where i wanted the braids to meet up.

Next I braided each section, going towards the middle part.

This is the end product once each section was braided.

It took less than an hour to complete.

Hope you in joys
