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.
