Pink Short Wavy   Light Platinum Blonde Mohawk  Hairstyle  - Visual Story


The sides of this head turning 'do are clipper cut short and close to the head while the top is left long enough to curl and style for maximum height and lift. This hairstyle is perfect for ladies with an oblong or round face shape. Strong hold product is needed to keep this look in place all day or night and regular trims will help maintain healthy ends.

Pink goes for her signature look here with an edgy mohawk-style cut that is styled with maximum volume. The sides have been shaved close to the head, while the top layers have been left long and curled into corkscrew curls. This style works well for for Pink's oblong face shape as it shows off her high cheekbones and adds height to her low forehead. Her medium-fine hair type looks thick and voluminous thanks to the styled curls at the crown, while the closely cropped sides have a slimming effect. Regular touch ups with the clippers are needed to keep the sides looking fresh and clean, while the top layers can be grown out longer if desired. A tumbling curl left out at the front finishes this style off nicely.

Pink's color is another standout feature of this 'do. Her platinum blonde tresses look fabulous with this pompadour hairstyle, plus it matches with her tanned complexion and blue eyes nicely too. To achieve this shade, the hair must be first bleached out then toned with an ash toner to reduce brassy tones and give it a cool, silvery finish. This color is ideal for fair skin types and light eyes.

Alecia Beth Moore, known professionally as Pink, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

step 1

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Finger Dry the Back with Blow-dryer

step 2

Use your blow-dryer and your fingers to dry the back of your hair by moving your hair around to allow the heat to pass through it.

3. Use a Medium Radial Brush

step 3

A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

4. Blow-dry the Crown

step 4

To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.

5. Blow-dry the Top Back

step 5

Starting just above the crown take a section of your hair that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush underneath and at the roots of your section and then with your blow-dryer in front, drag the brush up and then turn it under when you reach the ends.

6. Blow-dry the Top Section Back

step 6

To blow-dry the top section back you will need to take your brush and firstly make sure that the section is no wider than the diameter of the brush. Next, place your brush on top of your head and under your section. Using your blow-dryer on a medium setting, blow-dry your hair from the roots, slowly lifting your hair up and working your way to the ends. Make sure to keep the blow-dryer in front of the brush at all times. Continue this step until the top section is completely dry.

7. Use Medium Hot Rollers

step 7

A medium hot roller is used to give your hair looser curls and can also be used for body.

8. Apply Hot Rollers on Top

step 8

Take a section of hair from the front of your head no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets the top of your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Continue this step until a row of hot rollers has been applied along the very top of your head. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

9. Tease Hair

step 9

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

10. Scrunch Gel Through Hair with Fingers

step 10

Apply gel to your fingertips and then tilt your head forward and scrunch your hair.

11. Create a Mohawk Using Gel

step 11

Apply gel to the palms of your hands, then starting a few inches above your ears, drag your hands through your hair until they met in a triangular fashion at the top of your head. Repeat this step using more gel for a longer lasting style.

12. Style Bangs to the Left Using Gel

step 12

Apply gel to your fingertips then gently rake through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the left as you go.

13. Apply Gel Spray

step 13

To finish, evenly mist gel spray around the top, sides and back to create a lasting style.
