How can you get away with wearing a mohawk to the office if you’re a businessman? It’s simple, just play off the original style with the faux hawk, aka the fohawk.
From professional to more punk, when it comes to the faux hawk your options are endless. Sure, it’s just one single hairstyle for men however, you can easily personalize it to your liking.
That means the sides can be as shaved shorter, while the top can range from long (low) to short (high) in length. Even if you want to go the extreme route later on with a full mohawk you can always let it grow out.
The look: Hair combed together at the front to form a raised triangle in the middle. Precisely shaped at the forehead with short length sides.
It’s hard to go wrong with the haircut yet, many men still find themselves dealing with issues in the grooming department. Too much product or even the wrong product can really make your “faux hawk” look more like a “failed haircut”.
Understand that while the most popular, hair gel is not the absolute best choice for perfecting the style! Like the success of most grooming products, it really depends on one thing: your unique needs. If you have thin hair you’re going to need something different than a man with thick hair to make that front strip stand up.
Spend some time going over this hair guide, where I’ve compared Pomade vs Gel vs Wax for you. For some men glue is going to be the best choice, others might require a cream instead. About the only product you’ll generally want to shy away from is pomade for faux hawk hairstyles. It’s more shiny and flexible, which means it will look a bit unnatural, and your front triangle will work its way loose fairly easily throughout the day.
One of the best tips I can give you in addition to the above, is to make sure your hair is slightly damp before trying to shape your faux hawk. It will help a great deal when trying to get your hair to stay upright.
