If you’re ready to give your look an update, check out the 25 best mohawk fades for men.
1. Burst Fade Mohawk
A burst mohawk fade refers to a taper fade following the curve of the ear and spreads (bursts) outward as hair fades into the neckline. Put your own personal touch on the mohawk with a fun color, like this green.
2. Low Fade Mohawk
A low fade mohawk uses a little less side fade but still looks dapper and edgy. Style hair with a gel or blow dry straight.
3. Mohawk with High Fade
High faded mohawks allow for a little more creative expression but require a bit more maintenance. Spike up the hair for edge.
4. Short Mohawk with Fade
If you want to try punk style but don’t want long hair, a short mohawk fade is for you. It’s a little upkeep and still noticeable.
5. Long Mohawk Fade
The long mohawk fade is perfect for you if you know it’ll take some time to adjust to having a more normal cut to a shaved style.
6. Taper Fade Mohawk
A clean neckline and sharp fade complement the curly ‘hawk up top on this taper fade.
