Hockey Hair Beyond the Mullet
Frohawk Hits the NHL
Players from Calgary to Colorado are sporting frohawks, the Mr. T ’do dubbed the love child of the afro and mohawk. Take a look at the playoff styles of Matt Hendricks and Cody McLeod. Do you really want your kid wearing that to school?
The fauxhawk — a frohawk with trimmed but not shaved sides — offers a nice middle-of-the-road (or middle-of-the-head) compromise between a shaved head, a mohawk, or a frohawk. For a hockey player, the helmet is a whole lot more comfortable with a little hair to rest it on. And for a teen, this variation is a whole lot more flattering. (But sorry girls, we’re just going to recommend this for boys.)
How to Rock the Fauxhawk
Boys can get their hair cut for a faux hawk or simply style it that way. Ask a stylist for the right cut, or click here for the DIY steps. For styling, coat your hair evenly with gel or other styling product. Pull the hair in the middle — roughly the hair between your eyes — up by the roots and spike it. For heavy hair, you may need hairspray to preserve the look.
