The mohawk punk haircut has been around since the 1980’s. Although Mohawk has been associated with punk fashion and culture, there are many others who have opted for the Mohawk only because of the stylish appeal. The original Mohawk is worn differently as compared to what is seen today. At present, this haircut would require you to shave both sides of the head leaving a long strip of hair in the center portion, going all the way towards the base of the neck.
The complexity of the Mohawk is the maintenance! Today, the center portion of the hair is given a spiked look to add more drama to the original Mohawk haircut. This also tends to add height to the original strip of the hair. This strip is often dyed in various colors such as shocking reds or even blushing pinks! For Mohawk, you would need to use a variety of methods to keep your punk hairstyle intact. You can opt for back combing, hair gels and specific sprays to maintain this short punk hairstyle.
