How to Make Mohawk Ponytails

The mohawk ponytail gives the illusion of a mohawk hairstyle without shaving the sides of the head. To do this, the hair on the sides must be pulled tightly so that it lays flat against the head while the hair on top is teased. To prepare your hair for this style, have your hair freshly washed and conditioned, then blow dry and straighten with a flat iron.
