HOW-TO: Carve Out Creative Graphics into a Mohawk From Oster

Lauren Salapatek | January 23, 2014 | 12:44 PM

Oster Professional Global Artistic Director David Guerin, AKA "The Style Renegade," shares quick tips on how to carve out creative graphics into an otherwise standard Mohawk; hair tattoos!

TRY IT: Use a #2 or #1.5 blade and 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 enhance your design with Grease Pencils, my favorite is Graff Etch," Guerin says. "When I want the color to last for several days I use Sharpies."
