This simple taper fade with a mohawk will look especially good on men with straight hair. You will need to style it daily for this hairstyle to keep its shape and look its absolute best.
3. Low taper fade with a beard
A low taper fade looks especially well if you have a beard to serve as the extension of the hairstyle. The top part of the hair is left to be about 3 inches long and can be styled in accordance with your wishes.
4. Outstanding mohawk
This mohawk requires careful tapering on the sides which looks pretty much the same length. The trick is to make the sides look shaved while there is actually about half an inch of hair on them.
5. High and mighty
A simple short taper fade with a mohawk will look great if you use your imagination when styling the top part. Comb your hair upwards and style the ends inwards. The result will be stunning.
6. Curly taper fade
Doing a taper fade on curly hair is not an easy task. Mohawks don’t look too good on curly locks either unless you don’t allow too much length. Don’t make the top part longer than 2 inches.
When you are going for a hairstyle that involves some shaving, don’t forget about hair designs. Doing some simple art on the back of the head will make any hairstyle look special.
8. Spike it up
This is a light version of the taper fade with a mohawk. You can create it by tapering just part of the sides that are over your ears. The rest of the hair can stay long and you can make a mohawk appearance by spiking it up.
9. Fast and easy
This is a popular way of creating a simple taper fade by contrasting the high top hair with the short sides. The hair on the sides is slightly tapered and the top is spiked up to make the sides look shorter.
