THE MO­HAWK:

Hair - - Trend Talk -

Mo­hawks first be­came pop­u­lar as a form of re­bel­lion and es­tab­lish­ing af­fil­i­a­tion to cer­tain sub­cul­tures. Thank­fully, we don’t need to be bik­ers or punks to com­mit to it now. But a mo­hawk is so much more than just shaved sides and be­ing a gen­eral badass. It’s al­most like a lifetyle choice that re­quires reg­u­lar care and up­keep.

Get The Look:

A clas­sic mo­hawk in­volves shav­ing the sides and leav­ing a strip of longer hair in the mid­dle that can be coloured, spiked, and styled as de­sired. Of course there are vari­a­tions, like the asym­met­ri­cal mo­hawk which is a fresh and con­tem­po­rary take. Reg­u­lar vis­its to the salon to main­tain the shaved sides and take care of the colour are nec­es­sary. You will also need a sham­poo and con­di­tioner that pro­tects colour. Hair wax will help you keep your hair­style looking like it should. If you’re afraid to take the plunge right away, maybe ex­per­i­ment with faux hawks, which cre­ate the il­lu­sion of a mo­hawk with poufs and braids. All you need is loads of bobby pins, a teas­ing comb, and your trusty hair­spray.

Bad hair days are non-op­tional be­cause you can’t wear your hair in a top knot or a pony tail.
