Black Hairstyles

Mighty Mohawks
Stun with a trendy and fierce silhouette! The Mohawk is being given a modern twist and becoming the hot new cut. All over again.

Powerful Profile
This is more than just an average Mohawk.
Get the look: This expert coif was created by Randy Clark of Cutz 24-7 Baber & Salon in Kennesaw, GA. Short snipped sides sets up the base for this trendy silhouette. Mocha tresses at the tip of the style are tinted fuchsia and styled into big curls blending into a curved, soft shape.

Plaited details allow for a fierce silhouette.
Get the look: Hairstylist Kimberly Wright, of Natural Intensions Salon & Spa in Bellflower, CA, designed this intricate upsweep. Custom cornrows climb up both sides and morph into two buns, one in front and one in back. Synthetic hair is attached to the back bun and turned into double-twist braids wrapped around the bun. To finish, the front is tucked back to create a thick pompadour “Mohawk.”


Neon Strip
A subtle Mohawk-inspired shape with a pop of color.
Get the look: Natural, ebony tresses are highlighted with a triangular portion splash of neon yellow through the center. Created by Niya Alexander, of Shears by Day in Charlotte, NC, strands are styled into bouncy coils and then carefully brushed through for a lighter curl. Spirals are pulled forward, rolled under slightly and secured into the desired shape.
