Finger Coil Out Fauxhawk on Tapered TWA Tutorial

Finger Coil Out Fauxhawk on 4C Tapered TWA

As much as I love the look of a Mohawk, I’m not fittin’ to shave the sides of my hair. At least not right now. There’s no need to anyway when you can fake it until you make it with a Fauxhawk. A Finger Coil Out Fauxhawk is my favorite way to style my tapered TWA.

It’s Finger Coils pulled apart and shaped into a Fauxhawk. The style is edgy, funky, chic and super cute. Best of all, it works for any occasion. I decided to wear the style for the Essence Street Style Block Party and since you guys have been asking for a tutorial for a while now, this time I filmed it for y’all. You won’t believe how easy it is to achieve!

To maintain the style, I sleep in a satin bonnet and fluff in the morning. I apply a curl refresher spray every few days to keep my hair from drying out, and it wears well for up to two weeks.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
