Shampoo and condition hair as normal and apply Ojon Super Sleek Restorative Blowout Perfector to the lengths and ends.

Section hair and set each section with Ojon Instant Restorative Hair Serum and apply a combination of Extra Long and Wide and Long and Extra Wide Curlformers, root-to-tip, to a full head of hair.

Long and Extra Wide Curlformers

Dry using a Softhood on a medium heat setting until the hair is completely dry.  Allow hair to cool before removing your Curlformers to allow the curls to ‘set’.  If you remove a Curlformer and the hair is still slightly damp, just reapply and leave for a little longer.

Remove Curlformers and mist with a light shine spray like Design Essentials Reflections Liquid Shine, while teasing out the curls to add shine and body.

To create the Mohawk, pin the sides up to the centre of your head using hair pins or slides and tease the top so that the curls cover the pins.

Finish with hairspray to hold your new stylish updo in place.
