Chic & Easy Style For Black Men – The Mohawk
Sexy, chic and timeless – the black men mohawk. The mohawk has been long associated with punk-rock music, deriving from Britain in the late 70s, and largely associated with angsty, riotous white teenagers. So the emergence of black men mohawks is redefining culture and style across the board. The end result of a black man sporting a mohawk is generally a polished, stylized and alternative look that blends cultures, and stands out in all the right ways. The most diverse aspect of a black man with a mohawk is that unlike punk rock music labels, it does not press a black man into any kind of genre.

Black hair carries its own unique beauty, as it is largely kinky and voluminous when compared to other cultures with finer and straighter strands. It requires maintenance, like all hair, though it is more individualized in its genetic properties. In short, maintaining black hair can take time. As a result, a popular trend among black men is a bald, clean-shaven head, or maybe a short-buzz. Dreadlocks, short and long, are wonderful but require a lot of time, money and careful, at times expensive, maintenance. Naturalized black hair has also made a resurgence since the ’80s and ’90s (the days of the jerry curl) and afros are making a come-back. This isn’t a process of simply “growing out your hair”. An array of products and a bit of time are typically required in order to maintain the right height and volume of an afro.
Thus, meet the black men mohawk. It combines the ease of a low maintenance buzz on the sides while showcasing the natural beauty of the afro in a manageable and stylish way. It is also a look that can be interpreted in myriad ways. A quick glance at photos online will pave the way for how a black man can style his mohawk. The volume and depth of the natural kinkiness in black hair can lend itself to a short, wide mohawk, while many products cater to increasing the length, without compromising the volume and strength of black hair. The versatility of black hair also means that a black men mohawk sleeps well – unlike people with finer hair culpable to “bedhead”, a few finger-combings and a little product will have a black man’s mohawk back to style in no time.

The black men mohawk is daring – it blurs the lines of traditional and modern hairstyles but is highly easy to maintain. With the right stylist, it can be pulled off by all ages alike, adding a youthful, carefree look to older men or enhancing the stylistic credibility of a young man.

Not only deigned to celebrities on the red carpet, looking to make a bold move, the black men mohawk is a hairstyle that suggests cool, style and fun-loving in the same breath.
