HOW-TO: Create Creative Graphics in a Mohawk Style

Lauren Salapatek | June 25, 2013 | 8:01 AM

Anybody can knockout a Mohawk but do you know what to do to “Rock out a Hawk?” David Guerin Global Artistic Director for Oster Professional AKA “The Style Renegade” throws out some quick tips on how to carve out creative graphics.

Try it: Grab your detachable blade clipper. Put on a #2 or a #1.5 blade. Carve out the sides at least to the round of the head. Then continue into the exterior panels in the back. With Oster’s T-Finisher and with the edge of the T-Blade, start to draw in some lines into your canvas (the carved out areas). “You can get as creative as you want with your work when doing this. My biggest tip is, when you start to do the hair-tats, commit to it. Do not second guess yourself. Just go for it,” says Guerin. “You can enhance your design with Grease Pencils, my favorite is Graff Etch. When I want the color to last for several days I use Sharpies.”

Alison Alhamed | October 1, 2017

Color Zoom 101: Every year, Goldwell releases a trend collection that is used as the inspiration for its annual haircolor and style competition, Color Zoom. Across the globe, Color Zoom starts on a national level. Beauty pros compete in three categories— Creative Colorist, New Talent Colorist, Partner Colorist—by submitting a photo of their interpretation of the trend. Once the Gold winners of each category are determined on a national level, they go on to compete internationally on behalf of their respective countries during a live recreation of the look on their model—including the hair color—in front of a judging panel and audience. The international leg of the competition takes place in a new city each year.
