Directions: 1. Spray a thickening product throughout the entire head and pull hair into a high ponytail on the very top of the head. Tie with a dark or clear elastic.
2. Take a small, finger-sized section of the ponytail and backcomb/ tease to create lots of volume. Continue to do this in small sections, working your way through the entire ponytail.
3. Take the “volumized” ponytail and loosely wrap it around the elastic. Secure on all sides with hair pins and spray entire head with hair spray

Hair: How To Do Pretzel Braid

IMG_4541

1. First start with dry hair and then use the Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo and spray it on the roots from a 6 to 7 inch distance, dividing the hair in one inch wide sections to give the braid the necessary texture for it not to be slippery.

2. After using the dry shampoo, separate hair into two sections and make two pigtails, using rubber bands. Make them a bit higher up on your head in the back section.

3. Now, braid the two pigtails and secure them with a transparent hair band. Then, cut the top rubber bands from the pigtails, so only the ones that are holding the braids together remain.

4. Cross one braid over the other. Starting with the braid that’s now on top, create sort of a “C” shape and pin. It doesn’t have to be precise, you just want to have a nice curve shape from the braid.

5. Repeat the same step by making the same curved shape with the other braid and pin. Curve it up and over the top of the braid you just pinned down.

6. Ultimately, you want to get a nice sort of pretzel or knot shape from the two braids. Tuck the ends of both braids behind the knot and pink them down securely.

7. To maintain the updo, spray some Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Extra Hold Hairspray.

While R&B crooners like Usher  and Sammie have revamped the Mohawk to a modern and masculine look with a wild but trim beard. Dare to be adventurous? Take your pick!
