For this mohawk, I made a part down the center of Syd's head and cornrowed her hair from the sides up to the center. Once I reached the part, I stopped braiding. If I remember correctly, I used a rubber band to secure the hair where I ended each cornrow, although I can't be sure. I then used the Tightly Curly method to define the curls on the rest of her hair, but I honestly don't remember what product I used that time.
Here's what it looked like as soon as I finished.
This is what it looked like after it dried and shrinkage did its thing.
