The frohawk hairstyle was made popular exclusively within the short natural hair community. A "frohawk" hairstyle is a variation of the Mohawk hairstyles that does not require the sides of the head to be shaved. It does require that there be a large strip of hair gathered in the middle to almost resemble several mohawk hairstyles. Some naturals will achieve this look by applying twists to the sides of the head, cornrowing the sides of the head, or just pinning up the sides.
If you have short, natural hair, it is tempting to make this a go-to style for casual days or dress-up occasions. Be careful not to wear it too often, however, because the stretching the sides of the hair place tension on the roots. This can often times result in hair loss.
Here are some great examples of Frohawk hairstyles.
