Mohawk Fade

Written By Well Groomed Gentleman

We are specialists in crafting styles for the sophisticated gentleman.

A mohawk fade haircut is a new and fun way to have an exciting hairstyle that helps you to make a statement.

This style features a strip of hair in the middle of the head that is shaped into a classic mohawk. However, unlike a traditional mohawk, a mohawk fade has shaved sides and has a fade effect on the back and sides.

The mohawk fade is also a very versatile hairstyle and you can choose from a mohawk burst fade, a taper mohawk fade or a curly mohawk fade.

As the best barbershop in Coral Gables, Well Groomed Gentleman Barbershop can offer you any kind of mohawk fade you like. Let’s take a look at the most popular mohawk fade haircuts:
