#5. sloppy Dutch Braided Mohawk

Both African-American / Black and White girls can rock a sloppy Dutch braided Mohawk and look beautiful doing it! This Mohawk style is specially designed for women with relaxed hair. I tried it when I had natural hair but had a hard time pulling it off.  Sloppy Mohawks are often created with Dutch braids.

The braids based on Dutch hair is what makes this hairstyle messy. As a results, if you have natural hair you probably end up looking like Beyonce’s daughter Blu Ivy if you try this one (love me some Bey and Ivy, no pun intended!).

#6. Side-Shaved Braided Mohawk

All my real bold sistas stand up! If you have worn a side shaved braided Mohawk before you can count yourself as sexy, bold and trendy. Many black women look at side shaved braided Mohawk hairstyles as too risky for their taste. If you’re one of those who like to constantly change your hairstyles, this one may not be for you.

Why? You have to shave the sides of your hair and may take a little while to grow if you decide to do something else in a short period of time. Hey, try something new. shaved sides braided Mohawk hairstyles may not be for everyone but you are not everyone…You’re a sexy African-American or black woman with natural beauty no matter how you wear your hair.
