This haircut is cut very short on the sides and is left a little longer on the top to allow one to be able to use a little hair gel to create a fohawk. Some fohawks are very tall and made with long hair, but this version is fairly short in the whole scheme of things. It is still a somewhat conservative spin on a hairdo that is usually considered to be punkish. The faux version allows the hair to be styled in many different ways depending on one's mood. Colors can be added for more variety.
