A short pixie with hints of bronze mixed with blondes at the crown, gives an instant and natural look of radiance to the skin, on women with yellow undertones.

27 Piece Mohawk

If your one of the women that's all about color and want to stand out from the crowd, opt for this ultra edgy 27 piece weave styled into a Mohawk.

I like this particular install because you don't have to sacrifice the cutting of your existing hair.

The crown is snipped and colored to perfection and if your hair is not relaxed, you can still accomplish this look being that all of your natural hair is molded down before applying.

Piano Highlights

If your in the mood for a Fall look, go for the service of a cut, color, and style with strips of bold highlights, with shades of blonde and bronze. The crown is half curled in different directions to add drama and height to the style.

Finish with a good holding spray if your living in an area of warmer weather.

Faux Mohawk

You can create a faux Mohawk with your existing hair such as this short black hair style.

The sides of your hair is more than likely already tapered, therefore you can simply smooth them down with styling gel, and style the crown hot irons in the desired direction you that you like.

Hints of  dark bronze highlights are at the ends on the crown to accentuate the detailing of the style.

Retro Style

Give a jazzy appeal with an old school retro looking Mohawk.

The sides are tapered with a low cut and smoothed down. The top is styled in a french roll, and laid flat appearing as a large pin curl or barrel curl in the front.

Finish with a light sheen spray for a soft look.
