Undercut Faux Hawk: 8 Styles That Take No Commitments

The undercut faux hawk look takes much less of a commitment than a mohawk. A mohawk style is a thinner strip of hair which traditionally runs from the front of the head to the back of the head. Mohawk hairstyles will usually be hairless, other than the hair in this thin strip. Because a mohawk style can take a lot of commitment, guys can choose to try an undercut faux hawk hairstyle instead. 


What is An Undercut Faux Hawk?

Instead of shaving off all of the rest of their hair, guys are able to create a faux hawk strip by brushing their hair up into a spine. To make this strip of hair more prominent, it is possible to undercut the hairstyle.

Undercutting means trimming certain areas to make the hair shorter. A faux hawk is much easier to maintain than a mohawk is because guys can simply comb their hair back down again if they want to try something different.
