1. Buzzed and side-parted 

Give your Mohawk haircut the classic vibe of a side-part. You can either shave the sides or opt for a faded cut, but leave the top long enough so you can sweep it to the left or right.

Clear Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men

Editor’s tip: Keep your style dandruff-free by regularly washing with CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. With very little hair on the sides, flakes are bound to be more visible which can really ruin your entire look.

This style sure is interesting. Just like how braids add zing to the man bun hairstyle, it makes the Mohawk haircut even more stylish with its modern, cool-guy vibe.

Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo

Editor’s tip: If you braid your hair often, you have to make sure your strands are strong enough to endure all the pulling and twisting. Use a strengthening product like Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo to keep your hair from getting weak and brittle so it’s resilient to stress and doesn’t break easily.
