Mohawk: Faux pas?

Short answer – yes.

Made popular in the 1980s, the Mohawk hairstyle made a “loud and clear” fashion statement for the punk subculture. Mainstream culture has gradually adopted the style over the last two decades. Despite the effort to make the style a common element of society, the result today is the same as it was 20 years ago – a double take.

Not only is the style stereotypical of a liberal and rebellious nature, but also it is very impractical and high-maintenance.

Let me ask you guys out there – how much time do you spend on your hair?

Cleanliness is one thing. Style is appropriate as well. But inordinate amounts of mirror time, product application, or appliance usage are definitely unnecessary.

Maybe vanity isn’t your thing. Are you trying to send a political message via your outrageous hair? Try using words next time.

Listen. Take my advice. Go for the cool, messy, classy, windswept, or reasonably spiky look.

Don’t go for the Mohawk. It’s just wrong.
