What’s a faux hawk haircut? The faux hawk is a toned-down take on the easily recognizable mohawk, a cut in which both sides of the head are shaven clean, leaving just a strip of long hair along the center. The faux hawk is characterized by this same distinctive strip of longer hair, but allows for you to leave some hair on the sides, which isn’t as long as it would be in the traditional cut. The best thing about faux hawk haircuts is that you can incorporate a fade or undercut, which is a trendy idea. Need some examples? Here they are!
Textured, spiky, faded, taper faux hawks are all trendy and edgy ideas suitable for bold modern looks. These short haircuts require minimal styling and look hot and edgy, you may spruce them up with colors and textures.
A longer fohawk can be spiked, wavy, layered and just with much volume. Such haircuts require enough styling, you may add color and create a texture – they look very hipster-like and very cool.
