The faux hawk is a more modern hairstyle that is a combination between a Mohawk and a regular or conservative haircut. This particular haircut differs from a Mohawk in that the longer center stops at the crown instead of continuing on down through the center of the back. It differs from a regular or more conservative haircut because it is a contoured shaped haircut with the hair heavier in the center to be styled in that direction. This is the perfect haircut for the client whose hair grows straight forward and toward the center. It is also good for the busy individual who doesn’t have a lot time in the morning to style their hair.
