Mohawk hairstyles are characterized by a large, noticeable strip of hair in the center of the head from the forehead to the nape of the neck, complemented by both sides of a shaven head.
The mohawk hairstyle takes its name from the people of the Mohawk nation, an indigenous people of North America who originally inhabited the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York.
Some naturals enhance the look of their mohawks with natural hair dyes of blonde, light brown or burgundy. This style may require a great deal of initial effort and maintenance, especially in styles where the color forms a significant part of the style. Also, you may have to maintain the cut by visiting a barber or natural hair stylist every 2-3 weeks.
