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 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: (Pompadour) 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: (Mohawk) using two bobby pins, secure twists on either side of the head and unravel ends. Fluff to desired volume and use additional bobby pins where necessary to secure style.
