A braided half hawk is the perfect hairstyle for when you want something edgy, chic and a little bit glamorous all at the same time. It's a great look for when you're between washes, and it's easier to style than you might think!

To find out how to get the look, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with dry hair, spray your roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray. The dry shampoo formula will take care of excess oil, removing any telltale signs of greasiness.

Step 2
Brush your hair through, then part it deep on your favorite side. There is no golden rule, just choose whichever side feels most natural to you.

Step 3
Mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and use a medium-sized curling iron to make waves throughout the mid-lengths and ends.

Step 4
Gently brush the curls through and sweep the bulk of your hair over the shoulder on the side furthest from your part.

Step 5
Take a piece of hair from near your hairline on the opposite side and braid it against your head, kind of like a solitary cornrow. Work your way back behind your ear, then keep braiding all the way to the ends.

To speed things up, you can braid the hair so that it hangs away from your head, then secure it into place with some clandestine bobby pins.

Step 6
Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and you're all set!
