How to Give a Man a Mohawk Haircut. The mohawk has become associated with punk and counter-culture lifestyles. Giving a man a mohawk haircut is no different from cutting a woman's hair. Just make sure he knows what he's getting into before you get started.
Things You'll Need
- Electric hair trimmers
- Razor (optional)
- Shaving cream/lotion (optional)
- Hairspray (optional)
Have the man wash his hair and towel dry it. Do not blow dry his hair.
Part the man's hair into three sections. The middle section is going to be what's left over for the mohawk; the side sections will be shaved away.
Trim the side sections of the man's hair down to three inches or less with scissors to keep the trimmers from getting tangled.
Shave the side sections with a #1 or #2 guard. You could also shave all the way down to the skin. Just get as close as you can with the electric trimmers. Follow up with a razor, shaving cream and finish with lotion.
Cut the middle section to the desired length. The shorter you cut it, the spikier it is. Depending on the man's hair and the mohawk length you may need to add hairspray to keep his mohawk from drooping.
