DIY Woven Faux Hawk | Cute Girls Hairstyles

[MUSIC PLAYING] Hey, everyone. I’m Mindy from Cute
Girls Hairstyles. And today, I’m going to
show you a DIY hairstyle that we’re calling
the woven faux hawk. Now, this hairstyle is
inspired by a hairstyle that Bailey wore two
months ago in a photo shoot she did, but we’ve
kind of twisted it and mashed up a couple
different styles. So it looks a little
more like a fishtail, but it actually is not. It’s actually easier than
that, so you’re going to really love me for this one. And let’s get going. OK, now to start
this hairstyle, I’m going to push my hair back
towards the back of my head. And I’m going to just
pick up a small section right here in front. It really doesn’t need
to be a large section. I’m going to split it
right down the middle and cross them over each other. Now you can see this top piece
is crossing from my right hand side to my left, so I’m going
to go to this side on the left and pick up another
little section and just completely cross
it over both pieces. And I’m going to just
drop everything else in the meantime, because
this top piece is holding it down tight. Now I’m going to go
back to this right side, pick up another piece of
hair and do the same thing. Drop everything else. And just take this piece
up and over and cross it, and it holds
everything in place. And you’re going to pick up
a piece from the left side, take it up and
over and cross it. Piece from the right side,
take it up and over and across. Piece from the left side. You’re starting to
get the idea, right? And at some point, you’re
going to start picking up hair that may have already
been crossed once already, and that’s totally OK. Cross it, a piece from this
side and cross it over. You’re just going to keep going. You can see, I’m just pretty
much running my faux hawk right down the middle of my head. I’ll turn around so you can
see what I’m doing here. When you get to
the crown, you’re just going to keep
doing the same motion. So pick up a piece of hair. Cross it up and over, and
you can drop that one. When you get down as
far as you want to go, then you can just sort of
pick up the remaining hair, so you can feel where that
hair has all been crossed. Just pick it up, gather it,
secure it with an elastic. So you can see that it’s
laying kind of flat, and I don’t love that. I want it to be more dramatic. So the nice thing about this
woven nature of this braid is you can literally
just go like this, and you can just pull,
especially these front pieces. And the whole thing
is going to puff. It’s just going to
puff right up for you. And then you can also
take just a bobby pin, and when you get it pulled
forward where you want it, you can just stick a
little bobby pin in to help anchor it
into that place so that it stays nice and puffy. So the goal being, for me,
that it looks semi-normal from the front, but then
when you turn sideways, it has a more
dramatic feel to it. And then of course, in the back,
if you have elastic like I do, you can always take a cute
little lacy bow or something that matches your outfit. Just pop it in over
the top of the elastic and it will help hide that. OK, so let’s do the final spin. From the side, to the
back, and to the front. Now, I love this
one because to me, it’s the perfect mash
up for my personality. I want a hairstyle that isn’t
going to be too extreme. I still need to look
sophisticated and a little bit grown up, right? But at the same time,
when you turn sideways, it’s got a little bit of a
youthful, edgy feel, which is a nice mash of the two. So you don’t look so old lady,
but you don’t look too young, so it’s like the
perfect in between. So I know you’re
going to love it. Now, if you guys haven’t checked
