What Is A Faux Hawk?

The term “faux hawk” literally means “fake hawk”. This is because the faux hawk is similar to the Mohawk, but offers more styling options. To cut a faux hawk, instead of buzzing or shaving the sides of your head, ask your barber for a taper fade on the sides with longer hair on top.

Whether you get a low or high fade fohawk is entirely up to you, and the same goes for how long or short you cut the hair on top. The long and short faux hawk haircuts below will give you an idea of what style will look best on you.

How To Style A Faux Hawk

To style a faux hawk or fohawk and create the Mohawk look, you must start by towel drying your hair. Using a styling product such as hair gel, wax, pomade, or mousse, run your hands through your hair, spiking or lifting your hair up. Now flatten your hair on the sides and on top, leaving only the hair in the middle spiked up. You can even direct some of the hair on top towards the middle.
