A while ago (too long ago) I got a request for hair tutorials from Kay Brady. I loved the idea but was hesitant at first because long chick-mohawks aren't exactly something you see everyday. Then I realized that for most of the hair styles I do the mohawk is not a necessity.
So, let's get started shall we?
In addition to the above you're going to need some hair. The mohawk is not a necessity. I understand they were in short supply when the hair styles were being given out and were only given to a lucky few. I won't hold it against you ;)
Note: Brushing your hair too much can actually strip it of the good stuff. Let those dead cells rest (nice image).
Place the teasing comb into your hair a few inches from your scalp. Then slowly pull the brush back. Move out another inch or so, slowly pull back. Reapeat to the end of the section. Then pick up the next section and do the same.
Doing my poof has stretched out my bobby pins but I find the stretched-out-ier thay are the better they fight over my twist.
