Frohawk hairstyle and haircut: How to, Pictures
Frohawk is the name for the Faux Hawk done with kinky hair (aka afro textured hair). The Frohawk requires a special haircut and not many barbers are familiarized with it.

There are two ways to get a Frohawk
  1. Straighten the hair on the top of the head especially the crest
  2. Get a tapered haircut that shapes the crest

As you can see in the images for the natural hair Frohawk (see second attached image too), the kinky hair needs to be shaped with the haircut as kinky hair cannot be styled in directions without heavily manipulating it, so it is better to just get the haircut for the Frohawk done.

How to do a Frohawk

There are two ways to do a frohawk: straightening the hair or shaping the hair with a haircut.

Straightening the hair

You can straighten all the hair or just the hair on the middle. Direct the hair with the fingers to the center to form a crest as you'd do with a regular Mohawk. Use hair gel or hair wax to retain the Fro Hawk shape (hair gel for a dry look and hair wax for a sleek look).

To straighten the hair use a hair straightener or a hair relaxer. You can also do a Brazilian Blowout with a hair straightener for the Frohawk.


Shaping Frohawk with haircut

Starting from the lateral of the top of the head, taper the hair up so the hair right in the center of the head is the longest. Kinky hair stands up with lengths of more than six inches so you will not have an issue maintaining the shape of the Frohawk if the haircut is done right (use a barber!)


Hair products for the Frohawk

To straighten the hair use a hair straightener or a hair relaxer kit.

You can get much more lasting results with straightening the hair with a hair straightener by using a Brazilian Blowout kit. Get a Brazilian Blowout kit here.

To style the crest of the Frohawk, get this hair gel or get this hair wax.

If instead of straightening the hair you prefer to shape the Frohawk with a haircut, then get a good leave-in conditioner and you can also get a good hair clipper to retouch your hair once a while.

The frohawk looks very nice on black males with kinky hair, the only problem is the limitation of the hairstyle as in if you have a frohawk that's all you will be able to style your hair in unlike the Faux Hawk for straight hair or wavy hair.

Frohawks specially suit those who have kinky curls and coils and who do not suffer from male pattern baldness. Otherwise, men who are balding will look odd with a Frohawk hairstyle.

I posted a picture thread on James Harden's beard and this guy also happens to sport a short frohawk (so a short mohawk hairstyle with kinky curly hair). Here are the pictures of James Harden's fro hawk hairstyle:

In some instances, because his hair is so short, he looks to have a high and tight recon haircut instead of a frohawk hairstyle.

Oh, and let's not forget about Italian soccer player Mario Balotelli's frohawk with his hair dyed yellow and left without straightening. Now that's an epic hawk, whether a mo-hawk or a fro-hawk Big Grin

At some point, he thought that the yellow-dyed line of hair forming his frohawk was a bit too much, so he undid the yellow dye and just kept the frohawk's crest LOL

A creative afro crest! Big Grin so instead of a high top fade just get the angle right with a hair clipper and crest it. Not bad.

This is the frohawk or black mens mohawk of football player Paul Pogba who plays for Italian football team Juventus.

Paul Pogba is french & he has been compared to Mario Balotelli when it comes to hairstyles & haircuts. They both have styled frohawks in the past too Smile

Frohawk hairstyle pictures for black men.
Here are some more pictures of the Frohawk hairstyle. As you can see, Frohawk hairstyles can look somewhat different between one another, but the Mohawk-like crest with the short sides or flattened sides remains as the main characteristic of the Frohawk hairstyle.

The Frohawk hairstyle is trending in 2016, especially among young black males. We're seeing this hairstyle making it into 2017 too as the Frohawk complements other hairstyles like the topknot very well.
