Faux hawks - Page 2

: aww, thanks!
It's a lot shorter than I thought it would look- it's shorter in the pics than it looks in the mirror. So it's not that great yet. But I'm definitely going with it- I feel pretty with my hair like this (um, and a small amount of makeup).
It took all of 2 minutes to do it!

When I first heard the term "fauxhawk" I pictured Sanjaya from last season's AI and was going to say that they just look completely stupid.

But after seeing the photos, I have to revise my thoughts. The first one there looks like a simple, basic "short hair" style with a bit of styling gel- nothing "weird" at all. It definitely would look nice on you.

A friend of mine has one exactly like the one in the third picture. I think it's cute on her- it kinda depends on the person, though. I like it, too, because she can also wear it down and it's just a cute short hairstyle.

Just wanted to add that you are pretty and I think the faux hawk is awesome! If I wasn't a wuss with baby thin hair I would totally go for it!

I was going to say I don't really like them.

But I like the ones in the examples you posted.

And I looked at YOU in your sig links, and you are totally hot and could totally pull it off, makeup or not. Go for it.

I sport a faux hawk daily

I say DO IT!!

I had it as a not quite mohawk but jsut about (it was a tad longer on the sides) not that long ago and let it grow back out to a faux.

I here that more dramatic or defined facial features work best with short hair...but since you already sprt the short hair why not!

Post some pics

Oh, mine is like the first one. Except the sides are a tad longer and I style them forward. . You can also put the faux hawk in more defined spikes all the way back. Mine will spike all the way to my collar up through the center of my hair and the rest is short and pulled forward

My six year old ds sported a faux hawk at church today. He cracks me up! When he was up front for the children's sermon, he kept checking to see if his hair was still crunchy.

I swear, my hair thinks it's calling in life is to be in a faux hawk. I get out of the shower, and can get the middle top to stick straight up, with no gel at all. I'd need a little bit to get the ends separated and messy/spiky looking, but it stays like that all day. If I try to get it to lay down, even by seriously wetting it down, it stays. The only way to get it to lay down is if I take a shower.

The first 2 faux hawks, my hair would definitely do, no problem, with very little, or no, gel. My dp isn't thrilled with the look of mohawks/faux hawks. But he wouldn't dream of stopping me from styling my hair however I want!

I buzzed my hair a few months ago, and now it's growing back. I rebuzzed it a few times, and now I'd like to grow it out (just for something different). But the top middle of my hair is so much thicker and more stubborn than the rest of my hair! It doesn't lay flat, even when I want it to- it usually looks like my hair bulges at the top of my head!

So...opinions on faux hawks?

As for the hairstyle: silly but inoffensive. Enjoy.
As for the term "faux hawk": Far better than "mo-faux."

I looked at your pics when you shaved your head, I think you would look so great with a faux hawk. Anyone who can pull off shaving their head and still look adorable will be able to work a faux hawk nicely!

They make me think of TV's Frank, or maybe like a slightly dissheveled Morrissey. Or a Kewpie doll. : But if your face is more angular it can be easier to pull off.

You asked.
I think they are disgusting.

You have a beautiful face, I bet you can sport a short cut very sexily.

Why disgusting??

I know a lot of people who don't like them, my mother hates it on me, but I 've never heard anyone refer to them as "disgusting". The thought of eating dog poop I find disgusting but I don't see how the two are on the same disgust level

I am seriously curious though....

It is quick. It takes about 5 minutes to do mine. My hair is a little longer than yours. I think if you put some "rougher" texture in the sides it will make it appear less short, knwo what I mean?? I think with a faux hawk it is all about texture!!

I checked out your pic in your siggy and yeah you can totally pull it off. I had a friend who had a very long face and it made her face seem even longer weird description I know but that's why I asked about face shape.
post #39 of 47
Love it! Looked at your photos. You look beautiful!

I seriously wish I could pull off a look like that!
post #40 of 47
I looked at your siggy pics too and you can totally do it! I'd let the middle go just a little longer and keep the sides short.

I want to give my little guy a faux hawk too, he's only 1 but his hair already sticks up all over anyway, it just needs a little refining, lol.
