This Knotted Mohawk braid is a fun, new way to change up your traditional braid. It feels edgier and more modern while still being great for any day of the week. I love… wearing this type of style whenever I feel stuck in a rut with my regular french braid or dutch braid. Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below and I promise it’s way easier to do than it looks!

Knotted Mohawk Braid Instructions:
- Step 1 / Begin by brushing the hair straight back from the forehead.
- Step 2 / Divide off a 3″ wide section at the forehead, twist it together, and pin it against the top of the head with bobby pins.
- Step 3 / Pick up two, 1″ sections of hair underneath the previous section bringing them both to the back of the head.
- Step 4 / Place two fingers underneath the hair, grip the hair and twist the hand under and out towards the right side, creating a loop.
- Step 5 / Continue twisting the hand, twisting the hair at the same time until the entire section is twisted.
- Step 6 / Lay the twist over itself and pin it against the head with bobby pins.
- Step 7 / Repeat the previous steps creating twisted knots until reaching the nape of the neck.
- Step 8 / Separate off two small sections of hair from the outside of the remaining hair.
- Step 9 / Tie them together with a clear elastic band.
- Step 10 / Create a topsy tail by flipping the end up and through the gap above the elastic band.
- Step 11 / Gently loosen the sides of the topsy tail by pulling on the edges.
- Step 12 / Create two more topsy tails underneath the first on.
- Step 13 / Separate off two small sections again and wrap them around the hair, criss-crossing them over one another until you reach the end of the hair.
- Step 14 / Take one of the sections and wrap it around all the hair.
- Step 15 / Wrap and elastic band over the ends, pulling it tight and sliding it underneath the wrapped section to hide.
- Step 16 / Mist the style with a firm-hold hairspray and pull out any hairs around the face to frame it.
