I started a fauxhawk a couple months ago after doing a magazine article on mohawks. Decided today to get a full mohawk with the sides of my head buzzed down to the scalp. It is about an inch or so tall and extends down the back of my neck. Fun to see people's reaction though it is not as dramatic as many of the hawks on this site, but enough to draw attention. Although I like color, maybe too extreme for me, at least at this time. I'm an older man, so I'm hardly being mistaken for a punk rocker or band member. However, I like the hawk look and all the creative possibilites. Have to get some photos taken. I also like buzz hawks, maybe will end up with one since I used to have buzz cuts when I was in college and the military. Duh. When I sported my new hawk off today, I had five comments. From oooh - nice do - looks good - can I touch it? - I see you went all the way. Guess that's 3 out of 5 that were complimentary.
How Tall Are You With and Without the Mohawk:
5' ll 1/2" without, 6' 1" with - might add another inch.

as for how i keep my hawks up. i have naturally straight hair, and basically i just hold up a section and spray it with hair spray, then i move to the next section, and so one. i only use hair spray, everything else weighs your hair down. to prevent your hair from curling when it gets hit with hair spray, be quick and have the hair dryer waitng right next to you. as soon as the hair spray is on the hair, dry it. that will help.
