Types of Mohawks
A simple mohawk can be displayed in a variety of styles and types, some of which are shown below:
In a short mohawk, the hair at the front is very short and it becomes even shorter at the sides and at the back. The hair at the front eventually tapers off at the back to meet the length of the sides.
In a buzzcut mohawk, the hair at the sides is completely shaved off.
In a half-mohawk fade, the hair at the sides eventually tapers off so that halfway down the sides, the hair is completely shaven and only the skin can be seen. However, the skin doesn’t show at the back of this type of mohawk.
High Fade Mohawk
In a high-fade mohawk, the hair starts to fade away at the top of the sides! This means that most of the sides are completely shaved off, revealing skin.
Men’s Long Hair Mohawk
In a long hair mohawk, the hair at the middle of the mohawk is extremely long, so much so that it can cover your entire face! The hair on the sides is, however, pretty short, like a typical fade mohawk.
