Half hawk hairstyles often seem like a daunting prospect, but they're definitely a short haircut to consider, especially if you're not into bobs or pixies. While not as dramatic as a full mohawk or undercut, a half hawk is just as edgy and can be worn in a few different ways.

Why try it

As with any short hairstyle, the major selling point is how quick and easy it is to wash, dry and style. Less hair equals less time, it's that simple! On top of that, a half hawk has enough length on the longer side to create different textures from sleek and straight to tousled waves.


Regular trims are essential to keep half hawks in shape, especially on the shorter side, and to remove damaged ends. While hair only grows at a snail's pace (0.5 inches per month) a couple of weeks' growth is a lot more noticeable on a half hawk than with a longer cut.

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with clean, towel dried hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to smooth the cuticle and minimize frizz while drying.

Step 2

Blow-dry the hair using a brush to keep it as smooth as possible.

Step 3

Once dried, use a flat iron for any further straightening.

Step 4

To add shine and keep flyaways at bay, mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to complete the look.
