Dutch Braid Mohawk

Dutch braids are wide and loose, this makes them perfect to create a faux Mohawk hairstyle. The width and volume of the braid will naturally mimic a Mohawk without having to do too much styling. We love this look with the hairstyle completed with a long wavy ponytail but it would look great with a low bun, regular braid or a twist too!
