1. Wash and dry your hair. Comb out any tangles using a wide tooth comb.
2. Add a small amount of moisturizer to your hair. Allow it to dry.
3. Cornrow both sides of your hair in individual braids going up toward a Mohawk. Add a rubber band to the end of each braid to keep it from unraveling.
Gather the loose ends of the braids and put them in a ponytail. Add styling gel to the middle of your head and the ponytail. Smooth the end of the ponytail down and blow dry the area until it is completely dry.
6. Using a razor, layer the hair so that it falls longer in the back and shorter at the top. Straighten the hair with a flat iron, and style it as you like.
