Curlhawkqueen is not just a social media handle, it’s a way of life. The stable Mohawk regardless of size or style has been my ideal recognition. Where ever I go, I know that natural hair will make a statement in all spaces. Loud and proud.
The classic Mohawk look is a simple, more identifiable look which is brushed upward which the punk rock style in mind. This style is secured with pins from the forehead all the way back to the neck. Its simple, easy, and the most efficient way to hawk on the go.
The bobby pin updo Hawk is an edgy remix to a classy look. This updo gives you half Mohawk vibes with the idea of have the hair off of your neck. The pins add a fun twist to the look, the more pins the better! I’d preferably use pins with a bold color like gold or even white to stand out and slay!
Last but not least, the Bun Hawk! The Bun Hawk is an open expression of “I’m confident” and “I will not be silenced”. It’s one of those styles that gets attention from a far. This look is 3 separate sections of the hair pulled in 3 ponytails lined together. The ponytails are tucked under in a bun shape, giving the look a beautiful finish. I was inspired to create this look once I seen a similar version of it in another culture. My twist on this style was having my natural hair embrace frizz creating bigger, more fuller buns. Overall, all 3 looks were created in under 10 minutes! Anyone can achieve these looks, stay tuned for more content and styles from me, Curlhawkqueen.
Tell the Taper Team about the CurlHawkQueen
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, where I still reside. I am a graduate student currently training to become a Counselor. I received my BA degrees in Pan-African Studies as well as Sociology and have a passion for education and social justice. Raising awareness of self-definition for women and people of color is important in institutionalized spaces as well as creative spaces.
I am also a Natural Hair Enthusiast and a natural hair stylist. My hair journey started January 22, 2016. All my life my hair has been straight with ongoing heat damage. I never knew I had curls before my big chop. Given that I had a lot of new growth, my big chop went from having 15 inches of hair to 5 in comparison to chopping it all off. Unfortunately, with the hair I did save I had no idea how to take care of. I tell my story of struggle & determination to inspire others because once I got free, I never looked back. When ‘Curlhawkqueen’ was born, an extension of that inspiration was to create the page @curlhawkcrown . This page was made to encourage people to curate healthy hair as an ART, and unapologetically rock their natural beauty.
