Frohawk Updo

Bare with me ya’ll! I’ve included 35, yes…35 pics in this tutorial (ok, maybe not 35 but close! lol) . This hairstyle looks complex (or at least, that’s what I’ve been told) so, I created a step by step pic tutorial for the frohawk updo.

Enjoy!

Step 1. Set your hair overnight with 4 Ceily-like braids. The length and thickness of your hair will be the determining factor as to exactly how many braids you will use. Make sure that your hair is moisturized. I used the Hydrating Hair Custard and the Curl Delight Mist. Well moisturized hair will give more braid-out definition, as well.

Step 2. Take down each braid….GENTLY! If you aren’t gentle, you may risk causing unnecessary frizz.

Step 3. Separate each crinkle…..GENTLY! This will give the style fullness without frizz.

Step 4. Take the top section of the hair and clip it out of the way.

Step 5. Once the top section is clipped out of the way, GENTLY brush your edges. This would be a great time to add any hold that you want to use for your edges.

Step 6. Divide the back section into top and bottom halves. You can use a comb, if you’d like, to part these sections.

Step 7. Take a hair tie, of some sort and put the top section into a ponytail.

Step 8. Do the same for the bottom section.

Step 9. Once the top and bottom halves of the back section are secure, it’s time to create your pompadour with your bangs.

Have fun with it. Poof it to the side, make it high in the center…or whatever look you want to try. There are lots of options but I chose to keep it simple here, for the tutorial. The length of your hair will greatly influence the width and height of the pompadour.

I’ve chosen to lay my pompadour to the side.

Step 10. Pin that sucker up….and I mean PIN! Use as many hair pins as possible to secure it. I’d also recommend using the hair to cover up as much of the part of your bangs as possible. I’m not a fan of visible parts. (depending on the style)

See how the ends of my pompadour are still exposed? I will be tucking them in with the top section of the back of the hair when I begin/complete that step.

Step 11. Starting with the top ponytail, divide it into top and bottom sections. Roll and tuck the top half to where the ends of the pompadour are exposed. This is the step when you tuck in the bangs with the top section in the back.

Step 12. Roll the bottom part of the top section under. Roll them like old school bangs. Remember those? That’s the best way that I can describe them. How you roll the hair will depend on the length of the hair as well.

Step 13. Repeat the same roll, tuck, and pin action with the bottom section of the hair. Remember to divide that section into two parts….top and bottom.

This is kinda how the back will look.

Step 14. Strut! #youbettawerk

Give a try and tag #milkandhoneyhair on your frohawk updo. I’d love to see what variations you can come up with.

Happy updos!
