    Hair Stylist Calvin Smith demonstrates the finishing touches on a natural mohawk hairstyle.

    Calvin Smith: Hello! My name is Calvin Smith, hairstylist at Avatar hair Salon & Wellness Spa. In the last segment, I showed you how to use thinning shears and regular shears to customize your natural Mohawk haircut. In this segment, I will be showing you how to do the finishing touches.

    Based on I am working on a actual woman, I don't want any hard lines as if I was about to do a male haircut or a Mohawk on a men's haircut. So we won't be doing any finishing touches around the front frame area. However, you do want to make sure her neckline is cleaned up. When she is going to work or when she is going out, you don't have all the straight ends dangling around the edge.

    So I am going to go ahead and go into that, not actually cutting into the natural neckline but just following the natural pattern that the hair grows. Creating a nice clean line, going through and just getting a little of these ear hairs, but never cutting into the napeline. Always focusing on keeping the haircut soft.

    Now what we are going to do is we are going to follow the same natural napeline and clean it up the same way using the edgers. Once again, reiterating not cutting into the natural line, just getting the wild neck hairs. So everything looks clean with your haircut.

    Also, remember to keep in mind anytime we are doing the napeline, there is always hairs that are actually up under the cape. So what I would like to do is just to make sure we don't miss anything, open the cape up and make sure we get the neckline, just as a courtesy to your guests. So that way the haircut doesn't look bad, once they put their shirt on or once they are getting ready.

    Now we have our finished look, a nice natural Mohawk. You can see it's very-very soft and it's very-very feminine, all the way around. She still has her edginess but she can still go to work and feel comfortable about her profession in everyday work environment.
