The other modification of the cornrow hairstyle is Braided Updos. You know, braiding the hair towards the crown of your head will allow you to gain a more creative look.
A great example of a cornrow updos is the Mohawk cornrow, which is designed after the partially shaved Mohawk style.
Braiding the hair very close to the head can create a partially shaven look, without having to shave the sides of your head. In order to achieve the faux hawk, you need to start right at the bottom of your hairline and braid upwards from the sides and back of your head.
Make sure that you stop braiding the back just under your crown and then step braiding the sides around 2 inches from the top center of your head on either side.
Leave only around two-to-three inch strip of your unbraided hair right at the top of your head.
