You may have seen the last of the Mohicans, but not the Mohawk's. The hairstyle is making a comeback, but it's more relaxed and comfortable this time
Unlike its punk roots, the Mohawk has gone
soft. It's not as hard-core punk like a few years ago, but it's still
for the adventurous.
MOHAWK HAIRSTYLE ORIGINS
Mohawk is the name of one of the Iroquois tribes of North America, which lived in Mohawk's
Valley region (New York).
They became later part of what is known today as the "League of Peace and Power". Mohawk people
used to wear their hair tight up and decorated, but the comb effect was obtained without shaving the rear part
of the head. The style first became popular under the influence of the movie "Drums Along the Mohawk"(1939).
CLASSIC MOHAWK HAIRSTYLE OF 1970s -1980s
The Mohawk hairstyle is commonly associated with the
1970's-1980's Punk movement and it was a symbol of rebellion.
The hair used to be shaved on both sides of the head and
leaving long strip on the central part, using special hairstyle products and
techniques to hold it up like a comb. Depending on the length of the hair, the
Mohawk hairstyle can be fairly easy or by the contrary, very difficult to be
obtained and maintained.
Associated Mohawk punk styles are: liberty spikes,
deathhawk, psychobilly Mohawk, frohawk and Chelsea hawk.
