    Get ready to ‘mullet’ over these options and ‘hawk’ your world as we dive into the wild and whimsical realm of Mohawk mullet hairstyles – because business in the front and party in the back is just the kind of ‘shear’ brilliance we need to shake up our hair game.

    How To Style Mohawk Mullet

    If the appeal of a mohawk mullet is, well, appealing, then you are probably wondering how one might style this amazing hairdo. Wonder no longer, as we have the perfect guide to help you learn how to style mohawk mullet.

    Materials Needed:

    1. Hair gel or wax
    2. Comb
    3. Hair dryer (optional)
    4. Mirror

    Step #1

    Start with clean, dry hair. Wash your hair to remove any styling products or oils, and allow it to dry completely.

    Step #2

    Use a comb to separate the longer hair in the center (mohawk) from the shorter hair on the sides (mullet). Comb each section to ensure it is smooth and free of tangles.

    Step #3

    Apply a small amount of hair gel or wax to the mohawk section. Style it according to your preference. You can spike it up for a classic mohawk look or experiment with other styles.

    Step #4

    Apply a styling product to the shorter hair on the sides (mullet) to add texture or hold. You can leave it loose for a more casual look or add a slight wave for added flair.

    Step #5

    Use the comb to blend the transition between the mohawk and mullet sections. Ensure a smooth and natural flow between the two lengths.

    Step #6

    If desired, use the comb to shape and define the overall style. Adjust the length and shape of the mullet as needed.

    Step #7

    If you want to set the style more firmly, use a hair dryer on a low heat setting to help the styling products set in place.

    Step #8

    Check your hairstyle in the mirror and make any final adjustments. Ensure that both the mohawk and mullet sections are well-defined and styled to your liking.

    Mohawk Mullet Fade

    The mohawk mullet fade we recommend to those who are really big fans of this look. Why? Well, the fade shaves down the sides of the hair on the head, accentuating the longer hair on the head. This will make the mohawk mullet shine bright and be the center of attention.

    You have six different options for a fade, such as:

    Curly Mullet Mohawk

    Calling all curly-haired individuals! Pick up!

    The Curly Mullet Mohawk is your chance to let those natural curls shine while still showing off the rocker vibes of the Mohawk. Keep the sides short to accentuate those luscious curls on top, creating something to draw the eyes, too. Use a curl-enhancing product to define each curl and ensure they hold their shape throughout the day. With this hairstyle, you’ll be a walking testament to how perfect curly hair can look on men.

    Permed Mohawk Mullet

    If you just saw the picture of the guy above with that perfect curly mullet mohawk and sighed at the realization that you will never get your straight hair to curl like that – we’re about to change your world – ever heard of perm? A perm is a type of chemical treatment that will temporarily curl the hair giving you a natural beautiful wave for about 3 months.

    We wouldn’t be a good friend if we didn’t let you in on the pros and cons of a perm before you run to the salon. Take a peek at the table below.

    Modern Mullet Mohawk

    If you want to look like all the other men out there rocking a mohawk mullet, then you are going to want to check out this modern mullet mohawk. This hairstyle combines the calm, cool, and collected nature of the mullet we often see today with the edginess of the mohawk.

    Wide Mohawk Mullet

    If you have thinner hair, this might be the mohawk mullet for you. Why? Well, creating a mohawk that’s a bit wider will help to create the allusion of thicker hair. However, if you have thicker hair, going for a wider mohawk might be a bit much and not get the mullet mohawk effect you set out for.

    There are other ways you can help your thin hair look a bit thicker for the perfect wide mohawk mullet, such as:

    1. Choose the Right Haircut: Opt for a haircut that adds volume and texture. Shorter styles, like a textured crop or a layered cut, can create the appearance of thicker hair.
    2. Use Lightweight Products: Choose lightweight styling products such as volumizing mousses, sprays, or styling creams. Heavy products can weigh down your hair and make it look flat.
    3. Blow-Dry Upside Down: Flip your head upside down while blow-drying. This helps lift the roots and adds volume. Use a low-heat setting to avoid damage.
    4. Tease the Roots: Lightly tease or backcomb the roots at the crown of your head. Be gentle to avoid damage, and use a comb or brush to lift the hair slightly.
    5. Healthy Scalp: Maintain a healthy scalp using a gentle shampoo and conditioner. A healthy scalp contributes to overall hair health.

    Reverse Mohawk Mullet

    The reverse mohawk mullet might sound scary, but it’s anything but. It gets its name from the fact that if you put the bottom at the top by the forehead and the top at the bottom at the nape of the neck it would look is the same. Basically, it’s just a mohawk mullet that is as long at the back as it is in the front. Aka, you’ll have bangs.

    Long Mohawk Mullet

    If you like the length of your hair and don’t want to sacrifice it while still adding some change to your look, the long Mohawk mullet might be just for you. Allow the central strip to grow out, and maintain the sides at a shorter length for contrast. Since there’s a good amount of length you can play around with different styles also!

    Zohna Tip

    If you have long hair, use a hair mask once a week to help ensure your hair doesn't look dry and ratty.

By this, we mean that the shorter your hair, the spiker you can make it look – and the mohawk loves a spiky moment.

    Tips For Dying The Red Mohawk Mullet Description
    Choose the Right Color Consider your skin tone, eye color, and personal style when choosing a hair color. If you’re unsure, consult with a professional stylist for recommendations.
    Read the Instructions Always read and follow the instructions provided with the hair dye. Different products may have specific applications and processing times.
    Perform a Patch Test Before applying the dye to your entire head, perform a patch test to check for allergic reactions or sensitivity. Follow the instructions on the product for the patch test.
    Prepare Your Hair Start with clean, dry hair. Avoid washing your hair immediately before dyeing, as natural oils can help protect your scalp.
    Protect Your Skin Apply petroleum jelly or a barrier cream along your hairline, ears, and neck to prevent the dye from staining your skin. Wear old clothing or use a cape to protect your clothes.
    Use Gloves Always wear the gloves provided in the hair dye kit to protect your hands from staining. If the kit doesn’t include gloves, purchase disposable ones separately.

    Mohawk Mullet Crop Top

    If you are all about sharp edges and clean lines, then the Mohawk mullet crop top will scream your name. Keep the central strip long and styled into a Mohawk while the sides are buzzed super short. This hairstyle is definitely bold and adds a twist to the classic Mohawk Mullet.

    80s Men’s Hair Mullet Mohawk

    Zohna Tip

    If you have super blonde or white hair, make sure to use purple shampoo once a week to help cut any brass coloring and keep things white.

    Undercut Mohawk Mullet

If you are comfortable with having an exposed scalp, this is the haircut for you; as you can see, it’s definitely a requirement.

    Mohawk Flat Top Mullet

    The mohawk flat top mullet is for someone who likes the look of the mohawk but doesn’t love it.

Do you catch our drift?
