A faux hawk style is a fabulous and feminine take on the ‘mohawk’ – a famous skater hair style where the sides of the hair are shaved completely or cut closely to the scalp, and there’s one long stripe of hair from the front to the back which can be spiked up for effect. This creates a truly unique look, as we’re sure you’ll agree. The faux hawk hairstyle seeks to recreate the style of a longer section of hair in the middle on top of the head, but in a wonderful and creative way. We’ve gathered our favourite faux hawk inspired hairstyles which you simply must try for yourself!
