Typically I wear it down in a pony tail to keep it out of the way. Occassionally I'll let hang loose Conan the barbarian style, but then it gets in my way when I try to eat.
I actually, went to an expensive boutique hair stylist in New York City last month to see what kind of styling he could do for me as a down look, especially for the wedding I was attending in a castle the next day. He said there wasn't much of anything he could do without destroying the mohawk, since all the hairs need to be close to the same length. It was kind of sad, but also good to know.
This is a great topic, Im curious to know what others have found out. Maybe some stylist as found a different style. While I love the mohawk, i'm not a huge fan of the ponytail.
yea, mines too short to do the pony tail, i used to do that when it was longer. i either just let it down and comb the top foward so i have bangs, or put the top back and use bobbypins so it kinda looks like a pony tail, just w/ out the back tied. i saw someone online braid theirs into a french braid, i thought that was pretty fuckin awesome :D
I usually wear it all combed over to one side or the other if it's down. I'm getting triple extensions added to the back third of my head (along my hawk from the crown of my head to my neck) for Christmas and they'll hang down past the backs of my knees so I expect to wear my hair pony tailed back then. I never particularly liked pony tails but it looks like the only soluton that I'll have. I use wigs, too, but just for a particular look that I want that day.
I do finger waves or little pigtails in the back and tease the front a little, pomp it a little with a bandanna, just leave it, use wax and flatten it out and drop the front in my face, clip the part behind my bangs together and then tease it a little, braid it all, etc.
I've tried a buncha stuff. Mines not really thin though so I think that gives me more options but idk, never done the thin hawk before..
