Hot or Not: The Mohawk & Fauxhawk on Women
As stated on our last post, I'm bringing another Hot Or Not at you you to debate.
I've noticed more and more women who are opting to style their pixies into a varation of the mohawk and even some fauxhawks.
It seems when a cut has both sides buzzed it is easy to incorpotate a mohawk look with this cut by simply styling it upward. Pink has done this for years now and it seems alot of other women have too.,
For over 30 years now going back to the Punk Rock New Wave era of the late 70's early 80's the mohawk has been a unisex cut that has appealed to both men and women.
It seems in this incarnation women are leaning towards this cut.
Long gone are the completely shaved to the skin sides and egg yolk glued up liberty spikes.
Instead in this incarnation of the mohawk there is more subtleness to it.
Buzzed sides to about a #1 or #2 guard. Some are buzzed uniformly around thru the nape and back to match the sides. In these cuts there are easily presented as pixies when styled down.
This version has longer overlapping hair from the crown as an undercut.
The others I am seeing have a more tradtional mohawk princable going as the sides are buzzed but the nape and center back are not and are cut evenly with the crown and top in a spiked look.
There also seems to be yet another variation of the mohawk where the hair is wavy or waved and styled to one side but is given volume. Rihanna has been known to have this variation.
The Fauxhawk has appeared as well in some of these women's cuts.
Pink has worn one, as well as one of the dancer singers from the Pussycat Dolls. not sure of her name but have a pic below. Even the likes of Natalie Portman has had a fauxhawk while growing out her all over buzzcut from her V For Vendetta movie. In the Fauxhawk the sides are not as buzzed short or are not buzzed at all just cut shorter then the top and the top is spiked pushed up and together.
Of the two this seems the less appealing to me on women and to me isnt as unisex then the actual mohawk.
Below are pictures I have found on the internet that i have never posted before under the pixie cut pics because I didnt know if they were considered a pixie even though they have pixie elements. The more I've seen and saved pics of this style the more it became evident that it is a style variation all unto it's self.
So take a look and let me know what do you think of the Mohawk and Fauxhawk on women.
Hot or Not?
