Mohawk hairstyles first became popular in the 1980s as a punk-rock type of hairdo. And they're not just for men. Many celebrities like Pink and Rihanna have popularised mohawk hairdos for girls. The great thing about this rock-and-roll trend is that it can be changed up and styled in many different ways.
The original mohawk hairstyle is shaved on the sides and long on top. However, you don't have to shave your head to achieve this punk-rock look. The hair on the sides can simply be pulled behind the ears or pinned up.
Long Mohawk Styles
Mohawk hairstyles are often spiked all over the top of the head. To achieve this look, you can have your hair cut to one length all over and then spike sections using hair gel and hairspray. Another girlie mohawk style is to keep the hair long and straight at the bottom and short and spiked on top.
The braided mohawk hairstyle is often seen on African-Americans, although it can look good on anyone. This type of mohawk works best with curly or rough-textured hair. There are many various ways to create a braided mohawk, including braiding the sides and leaving the centre curly, or braiding the actual mohawk in the centre.
A ponytail mohawk gives you the look of a mohawk without having to shave the sides. To create this variation, you can pull your hair up flat against your head, using a large elastic hair band and as many hair pins as needed. Then you can style the top of the hair as desired. This is a perfect hairstyle for girls who like to change things up temporarily.
