The mohawk is far from the original punk style. Punk may be dead, but the Iroquois lives on.
All these haircuts show a strip of hair in the middle and shaved sides, but that’s where the similarities end. They can be cut wide, ending in a V-shaped neckline or doing something completely different.
The modern mohawk can be worn with any kind of fade, curls, black hair or even short hair.
Take a look at these 12 different ways to carry the mohawk.
