Banana Clip Fro Hawk Updo

This style is a modification of the Fro Hawk. I think it suits those with fine or short to medium hair, because you can still get the effect of having a Fro Hawk without having to try to pull up all your hair and hurt your edges in the process. Also, if you don’t have a lot of hair then this will give you the illusion of volume by having most of the hair on top.

This style is very easy to do and the results are a simple cute but edgy. I like how it accentuates the features of the eyes as well.

This is how I started off:

My Natural Hair


1. Use Section Clips or clips of your choice to section off the front and back part of your hair. This helps to get them out of the way during your styling.

2. Moisturize your edges and smooth them up. You can use gel if you like I used Kinky Curly Curling Custard and a Denman Brush. Both which are optional. You can simply use your hands and water or gel of your choice if you like.

3.Use a Banana Clip to secure the middle section in place. Then fluff it out to create volume and hide the banana clip.

4. Unclip the front section and fluff it out to hide the partition between the front and middle sections. Use Bobby Pins to pin the sides of the front section. This will keep it in place and hide the partition.

5. Unclip the back section, moisturize your kitchen area and smooth it up. Use more bobby pins to secure it next to the middle section.

This will create volume and create the “updo” look we are going for.

…and that’s it really. Easy, isn’t it?

Here are my results, from the front and back:
