Are you looking for inspiration to get your kid’s next haircut? If Mohawk is what they are asking for, here are all the inspirations you are looking for. Enjoy! Your kid knows what he wants from his next haircut. Your boy wants something classy and cool. He wants to stand out from the crowd. But you are at a loss. Which style will be kid-friendly and edgy at the same time? Luckily, there are quite a few such styles. And kids Mohawk is one of them.
And it’s not as non-conformist and challenging as you might think. On the contrary, these styles have been in trend among young kids for quite some time. They went out of fashion a while ago but they are back with a bang.
When we think of kids Mohawk hairstyles, we think of edgy, rough, and hard styles that go with adults. That’s not the case with kids Mohawk. Instead, kids Mohawk are innocent and frank just like the wearer. They can be mischievous but they aren’t too hard and appear frank and friendly.
More importantly, some of the styles among kids Mohawk can also be worn by girls. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that those styles that need shaving a part of the head are all reserved for little boys.
Kid’s Mohawk Ideas
So, if you want to grant their wish for a Mohawk style, don’t hesitate. Take these inspirations and let them flaunt their personality through the style.
1- Shorter Side
In Mohawks, you have to highlight that the hair at the center of the head is longer than the sides. You can achieve this goal without shaving the side hair and keeping them short. Bring your child’s hair from both sides to the center and stand them up.
2- Parted and Short Sides
This style is similar to the previous one but you have to part the hair in three divisions and only gather the top hair to the center. The shorter hair on the sides will follow its natural growth direction.
