Step 1: Cleanse and treat hair using MIZANI True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo & MIZANI True Textures Intense Moisture Replenish Treatment.

Step 2: Detangle hair using MIZANI 25 Miracle Milk and part into four sections, keeping in mind that the sections above both ears will remain twisted for your completed style.

Step 3: Layer a small amount of MIZANI True Textures Curl Enhancing Lotion and MIZANI True Textures Twist and Coil Jelly on to each section. Flat twist two levels of hair in both the front and back sections, and secure with perm rods. Tip: make jagged parts to make styling and hiding parts easier later on.

Step 4: Sit under a hooded dryer for 60 minutes or let hair fully air dry.

Step 5: With a liberal amount of MIZANI Supreme Oil, unravel twists in the front and back panels.

Step 6: Starting with the front, gather ends and loosely pin hair back using large hair pins to create a pompadour shape. Criss cross the ends of the side panel and twist to secure style. Fluff to desired volume.

Step 7: For the mohawk, secure twists on either side of the head with bobby pins and unravel ends. Fluff to desired volume and use additional bobby pins where necessary to secure style.
