For those not ready to go all the way for a full mohawk, the faux hawk haircut can be a versatile option. Unlike the mohawk, the faux hawk haircut leaves a bit of hair on the sides and back and the shorter varieties may be worn down for a more conservative look.

While not a look most guys can even think of pulling off, these cuts make a bold statement.

This faux hawk is cut as a traditional mohawk, except the sides are not shaved to the skin. Because of the lack of blending with the ridge, styling options are limited.

This is a great example of a standard faux hawk. The sides are cut aggressively short but blended into the long center point on top. A bit of wax can be used to give the hair its middle ridge. This style can also be worn down for a bit of funky variation.
