A faux-hawk is a modern twist on the classic men's hairstyle. The hair is cut with the clippers at the nape and sides, but the top is slightly longer on the top middle section. The hair on top is commonly cut with texturising shears to create pointy ends. The hair can be styled to look like a mohawk, or slicked back for a more conservative appearance. Slices of colour can be hidden in the longer length of hair, accentuating the mohawk, or hidden when slicked back.
