Guys like fohawk haircuts because they are trendy, as well as cool for everyday wear. However, although they may not be the best choice for office wear, they usually suit younger guys as well as teens. This cut is trendy, modern, as well as a bit harder to style. If you are okay with investing some time and playing around with your hairstyle, keep on reading! We will present 12 fohawk hair designs.
What’s The Difference Between A Mohawk And A Fohawk?
A fohawk is actually a faux hawk – just a shorter word used to describe the faux hawk haircut. A mohawk is more dramatic where the middle hair length stays intact, while the rest is completely shaved off. It gives you a punk-rock vibe and is perfect for rebellious men. However, a fohawk does not have completely drastic or shaved offsides. They are all kept at a normal length and are wearable by many different age groups.
Is A Faux Hawk Professional Hairdo?
Well, a fohawk is a lot more wearable to the office than the mohawk. However, a short faux hawk may be your best choice. This design is not the best solution – unlike your side-swept, voluminous fringe bangs, or taper fades, but it can work.
How Do You Cut A Faux Hawk?
Work with wet hair. It is a lot easier to achieve the perfect fohawk on damp hair. This is also a must-do step if you have curly hair.
Comb out tangles with a wide-tooth comb. Part your hair as you’d normally do.
Decide what is the width that you want to achieve. Divide your hair into three sections, and work your hair from the hairline.
Leave a lot of volumes to achieve and emphasize the fohawk. However, shave off the sides (the outer two sections) and cut them down to minimal length.
Work with either scissors or a trimmer. Let someone help you with your back.
Finish off the hairdo and your fohawk with a hair gel, cream, or your favorite hair styling product.
