The mohawk hairstyle (where the hair is shaved on the sides but left long in the middle) has been around since the time of the Native American people of the Mohawk nation. It has found popularity in many types of men and women from soldiers to punk rock artists, and remains one of the most unique and modified hairstyles even today. You can wear the strip of hair in the center short, long, braided, in dreadlocks, curly, pony-tailed, pompadoured, hair-sprayed, or even dyed different colors. Some folks have even gone the opposite route and shaved the center of their head and left the sides long, resulting in the “nohawk” or the “reverse Mohawk”.
However you choose to express your individuality with a hairstyle like the Mohawk, the great thing to know is that with such a diverse catalog of styling, there really is no wrong way to wear a Mohawk.
