The Faux Hawk

This hairstyle was derived from the punk genre that was so popular in the late 1970′s up to the mid 80′s. It was originally intended as an anti social, counter cultural break away from society and is a representation of teenage rebellion. It has found a new niche in todays younger generation as it represents the exuberance and vibrancy of teen age life. The original Mohawk was inspired by the old Apache Indian tribal custom and then was adapted by the punk scene in it’s infancy in the mid 1970′s.

The punk genre Mohawk was done by retaining an ample amount of hair in the middle part of the head and shaving off the remaining sides completely! Hairspray of styling gel was added and brushed up, making the hair stand on ends.

In the 1980′s T.V. Series titled the A-Team, Mr. “T” made the Mohawk a house hold name. Todays Faux Hawk hair style still retains the original concept of the Mohawk, but at a more conservative approach. Faux Hawk hairstyle is a respectable approach, nevertheless, still has that “bad boy” look and a more sociable trend to it. It is an ideal look that gives an adventurous approach while keeping a clean look.

The Messy-Do

Also called the “Good Morning” look as it depicts how one would look like, just waking up from a long nights sleep, without even combing one’s hair and heading out straight for school or work! But, it is still considered as one of the most fashionable hairstyle trends ever made.

This is reminiscent of that old James Dean look which sports a messed up pompadour top, made famous by James Dean himself in the 1950′s. The Messy-Do can be accentuated by just a simple white tee shirt and a jacket, which gives a roughed up look that some women find it hard not to notice.

The look can be easily done by just opening a window of a running vehicle or riding a motorcycle without a helmet, and of course combs will just ruin this trendy hairstyle!

The Modern Day Mullet

This is another antiquated hairstyle that is finding its way back from the 1970′s and 1980′s. This hairstyle saw its birth in the deep heartland of the American South. Originally called the “Red Neck” look, the mullet was the favorite hairstyle of the average working class Americans, that eventually caught fame in Europe and eventually to the rest of the world.

The look can easily be distinguished by a long “duck tail” length of hair on the backside and short sides and front. A variation of this hairstyle can be a small portion of hair at the backside reaching a necks length and a “flat top” look that mimics a military hair cut. The Mullet found its place in society just right after the Vietnam war, as veterans came home from the war and grew the backsides of their hair long but retaining a military look on the front and sides.

Todays modern day mullet looks pretty much the same in principle but with a “sanitized” look to it. Still retaining that lengthy backside of hair but not as long as the original.
