Nobody could even expect that a traditional hairdo of local Americans (Indians) would become so popular in XX-XXI centuries. Moreover, mohawk is a fashionable hairstyle in 2016! Mohawk has never been a femalehairstyle. However, modern hairdressers and stylists have adopted it. They have even designed special variants of this hairstyle for women including a faux mohawk, which does not require shaving the temples.
Mohawk hairstyles have become popular among foreign singers, actors and other representatives of showbusiness and celebrities. Jennifer Lopez has chosen fake mohawk. Julianne Hough has surprised her fans withthe new hairstyle. Selena Gomez enjoys her new look.
Original classic hairstyle and fake mohawk both demonstrate some volume at the top of the head. The faux mohawk hair can be stacked in large curls, allowing to remove the hair from the temples and to get thenecessary volume at the crown. Adding some colorful strands, the person with Mohawk demonstrates his orhers rebellious, unusual, bold character.

The fake mohawk can hold the balance between the shocking lookand amazing romantic style. However, it always brings a touch of provocation into your image. Faux mohawkis more versatile, so you can try its variants.
