Spiky mohawk hairstyle for African American women

Women can wear the mohawk and still be considered stylishly edgy and fashion-forward. Here, short, black, African-American hair is prepped and straightened, before the final styling. Sides and back are then buzzed close to the scalp, although long enough to be slicked down and not look like a buzz cut. A spine of hair is left, from crown to the back, and here, hair is sectioned several times. Each section is then cut bluntly across the edges for uniform length, then given minimal feathering. As a final touch, the sections are styled up, and in contrasting directions, for maximum movement.
