A mohawk hairstyle is one of the most daring short haircuts out there, not least because of the super short sides and varying degrees of height and volume. It also happens to be one of the easiest looks to style, too, as long as you have the right cut.
If you're seriously committed (like, 500% sure) to getting a radical short cut like a mohawk or undercut, ask your stylist to leave plenty of length on top, up to four inches or so, and to crop the sides to almost buzz-cut proportions for maximum impact. This look is all about the shock factor after all!
While it might not be one for the faint-hearted, this hairstyle will always stand out from the crowd!
How to style
Once you've made the leap, the next step is getting used to styling your new short cut. A high, feathery mowhawk/pomp like the one on the model opposite is a perfect option as it really shows of the length on top, while showcasing the short sides at the same time.
Step one: Start by warming a little Advanced Hairstyle TXT Hyper Fix Putty. To do this, place a little on your fingertips and rub your hands together.
Step two: Work the product evenly through the longer hair on top of the hair with your fingers. Scrunch and massage at the roots to build height and volume.
Step three: Pull your fingers up through the hair and shape with your hands into the desired shape. Add more product if needed but make sure you don't overload your hair.
Step four: Smooth down the back and side sections with a little putty on the palms of your hands and you're done.
