Best Mohawk Fade Haircuts

1. Burst Fade Mohawk

2. Short Mohawk Fade

Hoping to look all professional, with a clean, marginal, and fresh haircut, this would suit you best. It is just like the traditional punk style, although the hair at the top is spiked vertically.

It would interest you to know that it is a low-cost maintenance hairdo.

4. Curly Mohawk Fade

The Mohawk fade even suits curly hair more. You can pick temple fade or burst fade for the sides while a curly hair mound sits in the middle of the head. You can style further with a beard or a hairline. The curl can also be rolled up to give you a modern summer style.

6. Low Fade Mohawk

This one starts around the temple, thereby leaving a lot of hair on the top. It is sort of a stylish but subtle look.

7. High Fade Mohawk

This creates a very short haircut on the back and the sides, almost similar to an edgy style. The tapering begins very high on the head and later shortens faster than low or mid fade. The tapered below would make the hair at the center more pronounced. It is modern and fashionable, making it the most popular version of the Mohawk haircut.

8. Mohawk Skin Fade

The tapering, in this case, can be high or low, but the Mohawk is short. Keep the Mohawk short and start the fade high for a bolder look. An alternative, still within the borders of skin fade, is to make the fade low at first and make it short later on. This would make your facial features more pronounced, like that of models, and with that, you are set for that cool photoshoot!

9. Black Mohawk Fade

This is the usual mohawk haircut – it can be cut low, medium, or high to give a very cool look. The hair length is shortened gradually, showing the fade effect and leaving a noticeable hair on the top of the head, which gradually reduces in length as it gets closer to the neck.

10. Drop Fade Mohawk

12. V Fade Mohawk

It can go with a high fade or Topknot Mohawk.

The V shape should be clearly emphasized by the two distinguishing parts on both sides of the high top.
