5. Faux Hawk Ponytail
If you are one of the people who have thick hair, there are specific steps that you should take to figure out how to style a faux hawk with thick hair. The faux hawk ponytail begins with sectioning the top section of hair, parting it on the sides and creating a rectangle area of hair to begin your Dutch braid. Clip the remaining hair that will be added to the ponytail into a hair elastic for later use. Begin using the three strands for a braid and, as in all Dutch braids, you go under rather than overhanded. As you proceed back, incorporate the hair and proceed to the crown and secure it with a hair band. Go back and pancake the sections of hair out to create the faux hawk. Gather the sides and remaining hair into a ponytail and secure it with a hair elastic. If you choose to add additional volume to your ponytail, simply use spray and add your desired level of volume.

I always find it fun to help women learn how to style a faux hawk on female long hair. One reason it is so fun is the ability to do variations on this style. By far one of my favorites is the side braids which themselves can carry many variations, as well. Simply section out your rectangle on top, beginning at the hairline and proceeding back to the crown and clip it securely so you can work on the sides. Then you simply begin your braids whatever variation you choose. You can incorporate various designs and styles of braids into this look. This happens to be one of our favorite faux hawk looks due to the fact that it reminds us of how Viking women may have looked in their particular era.
