Mixing an Undercut Mohawk haircut with different hair colors!
Here at our barbershop, we’re definitively seeing the new 2016 hairstyle trend of dyeing hair in a variety of colors. This particular men’s hair-styling trend consists of using temporary hair dyes with contrasting colors and regardless of hair type or hair length. A hipster-influenced trend, here is what this fashion trend looks like.
If you’ve been following this site, you will know that I was against this hair-dyeing trend right when it started at the end of 2015, but I’ve eventually grown to somewhat dig this trend. Of course, it should go without saying that this is just me being vocal on my own site with my own personal opinion, and I certainly take customers at our barbershop who are looking to dye their hair or beards; I simply dislike this trend on a personal level.
Lo and behold, we recently had a barbershop customer of ours who had been growing his hair long and wanted a radical hairstyle makeover. So, Steve, one of our in-house barbers at our barbershop, had the idea of giving this customer an undercut with a Mohawk haircut paired with a single braid (akin to a man-braid) while dyeing his hair in six fading colors. This was the end result:
Steve called this haircut the “unicorn hairstyle” and it has stuck through. Our customer was very happy with the radical hairstyle change and we’ve been getting more and more customers looking to dye their hair with these temporary hair dyes.
For those of you wondering about the specs of this “unicorn hairstyle”, the hair on the sides and on the back was buzzed with a #1 hair-clipper length while the top of the Mohawk was trimmed to 5 inches on the top and tapered down to 4 inches at the back. The braiding of the hair lock was done after the hair was dyed completely and not before.
If you have any questions about this given hairstyle (i.e. the unicorn hairstyle) or about the specs of the haircut or of the hair dyeing, then feel free to let us know in the comments below.
