Pull-Through Faux Hawk

Hey hey hey everyone! Today I’ve got this super beautiful hairstyle—modeled, once again, by my beautiful sister! It’s a great hairstyle for both simple and fancy occasions, and for basically everyday, haha! I absolutely love the faux hawk look, and I found that the pull-through braid made a gorgeous version of that! Let’s get to it!

Difficulty level: medium

Time: 10-15 mins

Items needed: lots of elastics!—it really depends on how much hair you have. In all these pics, I had to use roughly 15 elastics, I believe—and her hair reaches about her mid-back.

Step 1) Brush hair  [you can hairspray it as well, if desired]

Step 2) now, gather a small section of hair from the top front of the head, and tie with an elastic to create a ponytail:

Step 3) now, gather a section of hair behind that ponytail and tie with an elastic to create that section of hair into a separate ponytail.

Step 4) Now you’re going to split that first ponytail in half:

Step 5) Grab the second ponytail and bring it through the two halves of the first ponytail:

Step 6) Pin the ponytail that has been brought through away(towards the face).

Step 7) now, using the two halves of that first ponytail, add some /more/ hair from that section and pull it into a ponytail, using an elastic(remember that you are gathering together all of the hair into one big braid!—it’s a lot like French braiding) Now you can unpin that other ponytail.

Step 8) split the ponytail that you just unpinned in half and repeat steps 5-7

Finishing touch: secure with an elastic, pancake the braid, and hairspray(if desired)!





And there you have it! The Pull-Through Faux Hawk! I hope y’all enjoyed doing this hairstyle as much as I did! Happy hairstyling!
