Half Up Faux Hawk

Take an edgy outfit to the next level with an equally edgy hairstyle! When the girls at the Red Chair Salon got word that I was going to the Metallica concert, they texted me a picture of a “half up faux hawk” and said, “this screams you for Metallica.” It was a done deal. Luckily for y’all, this hairstyle is easy to recreate at home. Believe it or not, all it takes is a few elastic bands, bobby pins and topsy tails! Whether you’re attending a heavy metal concert or just want to try something new, follow the steps below to achieve this rockin’ hairstyle!

Begin by teasing the front section of your hair. Once you’ve created enough volume, fasten your hair into a half up half down ponytail. Next, form a topsy tail out of the small ponytail you just made, then continue topsy tailing 3/4 of the way down the pony.

After that, gently pull apart each topsy tail to create an “undone” appearance. Once the topsy tails are in order, comb back two small sections of hair along both sides of your face and criss cross them underneath the ponytail. Fasten the pieces with bobby pins and finish lightly with hairspray.

Consider it a sin to show up to the salon wearing anything other than a button down shirt! There is nothing more tragic than messing up your new do before arriving to your event. Avoid the drama and wear this boyfriend shirt to your next appointment and your half up faux hawk will thank you later!

      It is a great feeling when you finally find a hair stylist who just knows what you like before you even know what you like!
