Janelle Monae (Feb 8th, 2009)
Janelle Monae adds a punk edge to her mohawk hairstyle with sleek sides and a tight cluster of curls on top.
Step 1: Apply a quarter-size amount of curl-enhancing balm onto damp hair and comb through to distribute. Turn your head upside down and smooth your strands against your scalp with a natural bristle brush, gathering your length all in front.
Step 2: Leaving the ends out, use several large bobby pins and secure hair into place snug against your scalp about three inches back from the hairline in front.
Step 3: Turn right side up again and then scrunch the ends with your fingers while you blow dry with low heat. Tuck random curls under and pin into place.
