Mohawk hairstyles can be quite an eye catcher. When someone wears their hair in this particular hairstyle it is usually to make a statement that they are unique. Someone that wears a men's Mohawk hairstyle is definitely not afraid to be themselves. They are not worried about what other people think of them. It must be very liberating to be so self assure. Some of you may think that the Mohawk started with the punk rockers back in the 70s and 80s but that is just not the case. The Mohawk was in fact worn by Indians years before the United States was even called the United States. Punk rockers do indeed wear their hair in Mohawks and some of them even opt to add a little color to their hair.
The colors they add are not necessarily something that you see everyday. For instance you may find a punk rocker with a green, pink, or blue Mohawk. This is definitely something that will catch your attention. Which is exactly what it is meant to do. Mohawks can be many different lengths from short spiky Mohawks to long Mohawks. Some people even feel that the longer the spikes on a Mohawk the better the hairstyle. It takes a lot of hair product to get hair to stand up straight and pointy but that is the whole point of a Mohawk.
Among the categories of people among whom hairstyle find widespread appeal include the Indian Americans themselves who probably wear them as a sign of pride in their rich cultural heritage, and punk rockers to whom wearing Mohawk hairstyle is part of their chosen lifestyle.To make the Mohawk hair even more outstanding, many wearers often opt to incorporate color into the hair-scheme; and indeed this is fast becoming the rule rather than the exception as far as hairstyles go. Mohawk hairstyles come in a number of varieties. One of the most remarkable is the 'Horse mane' hairstyle. This works well for medium sized hair; and it is one hair style that will get people really talking.
Another great hairstyle is the 'short and spiky' Mohawk variety - and this is viable even for people whose hair is not long enough to accommodate the Horses' mane Mohawk hairstyle, though even the medium-sized hair can still benefit from the short and spiky hairstyle.The long and pointy hairstyle is yet another option as far as Mohawks go - and this is probably the most commonly sighted of all hairstyle; being the favorite to punk rockers as it seems to be. To get the long and pointy Mohawk hairstyle, what one needs to do is first grow their hair long, and once it has acquired the required length which is long enough to be stranded, but not long enough to flow over the back, mold it into the sharp strands that make the 'long and pointy' hairstyle - taking care to ensure that the strands stand upright, as it is of course the uprightness of the strands that makes it a Mohawk hairstyle.
