HOW-TO: Half-Up Mohawk Buns

Constance Jablonski Double Half Up Buns

When I heard that VS angel Constance Jablonski teamed up with photographer Boo George and shot on location in Tanzania for the summer issue of Porter Magazine, I knew the outcome would serve as major and not to mention much-needed inspiration for the sunny days to come.

I never imagined that I’d fall (hard) for an updated version of the ‘cool girl bun‘ but nevertheless I’m obsessed with its heavy-texture and double elastics. On a mish to recreate the look, I turned to the hairstylist herself —Samantha Hillerby.

GET THE LOOK: HALF-UP MOHAWK BUNS

  1. Shampoo as you plan to style. Shampoo with Bumble and Bumble Surf foam wash followed by Surf Creme Rinse Conditioner for ultimate texture . 
  2. Towel-dry the hair and spray one full application of B&B Prep Spray from root to tip. This spray detangled reveals texture.
  3. Apply B&B Surf Infusion Spray through the hair again, from root to tip, working it evenly through with the fingers. Using a diffuser, slowly finger-dry the hair to enhance formation of your natural texture. 
  4. Once the hair is dry, section a middle part, half the hair from above the ear under the crown and pull into a high ponytail on top of the head, making sure to maintain the sleek center part. Secure with a snag-free hair band, wrap the ponytail into a messy knot and secure with another elastic. 
  5. Using your fingers only, pull out soft pieces or hair around the face to frame.
  6. Finally, spray some more B&B Surf Infusion lightly over the whole head for an extra lived-in look.

You can wear this look in a double knot half-up, half-down or all up in one knot. It’s easy and versatile and is for suitable all hair types and face shapes.
