The Fohawk or the Faux Hawk is a hairstyle that had become the most popular style among men all over the world. The secret behind it is that it has a rebellious spirit yet a modern and non-aggressive look of its original style, the Mohawk. It is considered an appropriate hairstyle for both formal and casual events.

What is a Fohawk?

This hairstyle originated from the classic Punk Mohawk style. That explains the name Faux Hawk, which actually means fake Mohawk. It is a similar look, yet offers far more options for styling in different, classier ways.

Unlike with the good old Mohawk, where you need to buzz the sides of your head and just leave the hair in the middle, the Fohawk need to have a taper fade on the sides with longer hair on top. It is a bit more complicated than a Mohawk, yet far more stylish and acceptable by society.

 

How to Style It

For those of you who want to wear this hairstyle, all we can say is that it is extremely easy to style. All you need to do is first dry your hair with a towel, and then apply mousse, wax, gel, or pomade by running with your hands through your hair. Then, spike your hair up and flatten the sides. The idea is to leave just the middle part of your hair all spiked up. Of course, there are varieties, for example, slightly pushing the back of the middle hair to the front and highlighting just the front spikes, but that is just a matter of taste. Experiment, have fun. You simply can’t go wrong with the Fohawk because no matter how you set it up, it will look great!
