All radical short and long hair hairstyles make a statement. One of the most unmistakable extreme hairstyles for noticeably longer hair are the mohawk styles. According to Wikipedia, a modern mohawk hairstyle is named after the indigenous Mohawk people, Native Americans who lived in the northeastern United States.
However, the mohawk cut itself was worn by ancient people far before that. Mohawk haircuts have a wide variety of variations today: a long mohawk, a short mohawk, curly hair mohawk haircut styles, mohawk haircuts for wavy hair, straight hair, an Afro mohawk, a spiky style, an undercut mohawk, a mohawk fade, a buzz cut mohawk, faux hawk styles, a pompadour mohawk, and a modern braided mohawk.
Let’s explore some of the different creative iterations of the modern mohawk haircut.

Although the mohawk haircut itself isn’t particularly conventional, this is perhaps the most traditional version of the mohawk cut. Smoothly shaved sides and a narrow hawk define the template for this hairdo. The hair is spiked using plenty of product. This hairstyle doesn’t hold its appeal if it starts to fall.
