Apply Style Link Smooth Setter to damp hair. Blow-dry for volume.
Create a Mohawk section at the top of the head, extending to the crown.
Within the section, apply a small amount of Style Link Grip Definer. Create a wide Dutch braid (a French braid with pieces crossed under, not over) ending at the crown. Conceal elastic with hair looped around the band.
Use a curling iron to wave remaining hair into loose pattern.
Spray with Style Link Texture Builder.
