Faux Hawk : Go get it

FauxHawk.jpgRecently I surveyed about prevailing hair styles among men in Islamabad. Most men I met say that “Faux Hawk” is pretty much in and on the rise. Some might even go with colors and dyes, and others might like it with streaks. Of course when asked from stylists, they say that traditional gels are out and demand for putty is on the rise.

The most widespread trend for men, hands down, this fun new look is extremely versatile and works well with any length of hair. No longer do you need to shave either side of your noggin down to a pasty white to get this great look.

Men who want to sport a faux hawk hair style have your stylist trim the sides relatively short, leaving more length in the center to create a peak. If you go this route, you’ll need to have allot of texturizing throughout to add movement. And you’ll need a strong hold gel or hair paste to hold the style.

    How do ppl make it stand there … quite a strong gel I guess … whenever I see someone in this style (for the first time I got to knew in civilized world it’s called faux hawk) … so croc is the word that comes to my mind :P

    Yup, its kinda hip right now. It has become a ‘trademark emo’ style now. Only that, the people that do it, know about the ‘trademark’ part :D Here are a few other samples.

    Plus, short-hair are not that hard to maintain or make. Tell the nai I want them short and they do a perfectly good job on it (showing them a picture really helps).

    Short hair is very controllable, especially with water, gel, wax or cream.

    Use “putty”. It’s a white paste, sort of a hard holding solution. Needs some effort though to style your mohawk. I guess people are getting out of “gel” drift over here too. Gel in its traditional sense is becomming history now.
