faux hawk hairstyle for black women

faux hawk haircut

The faux hawk hairstyle also known as the “fohawk” copies the style of a mohawk, but with tapered or razor cut shaped sides and without shaving the sides bald. This version is typically worn with a small but noticeable spike in the middle, and usually shorter than many traditional historic mohawks.

There are many derivatives of the mohawk that are sometimes referred to as a faux hawk, such as:

  • Euro-hawk – sides are generally cut longer
  • Frohawk –  specifically with natural afro, kinky, curly, coily textured hair
  • Dreadhawk – specifically created with locked hair or dreadlocks
  • Fanhawk – shaped like a fan
