Messy Mohawk Braid Tutorial

A Summer Makeup Look

I’ve got something a little new for you today!

Braids are such a fun way to change up a normal go-to hairstyle, and I especially like when they are incorporated in a creative way! From the front, this looks pretty much like a standard half up style, but JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE BACK. MINUTE 2:46 HAD ME IN TEARS!

Just kidding, I found that sentence heading in a “click-baity” type direction and I had to oblige. I hate click bait. If you follow on snapchat (@k8_smallthings) you may have seen Justin and I jokingly discussing click-bait type titles for his Rainier post in which we discovered my suggestions for click bait aren’t very compelling.

Anyway, back to the mohawk.

You know, as I write this I realize putting mohawk in the title should be shocking enough to click on, right? And you’re here aren’t you? Let’s get into it, shall we?

I use Amika Un.Done Texture spray and Kenra Volume 25 Hairspray for this look!

I love this! I have been getting a little more daring about my hair styles, and I may have to give this one a try. I also LOVE your nail polish. What brand/color is it?!

This was a fun up-do to watch – I like being able to see how gently you move the pieces of hair around when you’re pulling the teased parts back.

Your skin looks so pretty and naturally a little tan – is that “real” from being out in the sun or some sort of self-tanner? We seem to be a similar skin tone but I don’t tan — just burn! If you do use some sort of self-tanner, that would make for an awesome blog post or periscope video!

Hi! I don’t know if you take questions or requests—but this is wedding season and as a family member I’ve been asked to wear a fascinator…any suggestions please??–never worn one before, only ever seen them @ the posh horse events and Kate Midleton(yikes!!!!, how to compare?!?…)have absolutely no clue…if you have any guidance as I am fond of your kind of undone style I’d appreciate it very much. Thanks in advance for your time.

I wish I could do a braid on myself and make them look as thick as yours with my baby fine hairs! You have the best tutorials! ?
