Originated from the american-indian mohawk
hairstyle, now commonly seen on anarchists, punks, rebel's etc.. usualy as a sign of anti-fascism and/or chaos/rebelion.
Usualy dyed a variety of brilliant colours, and fanned or liberty spiked using knox/glue/egg-whites/soap/strong hair cosmetics.
Other variations of the Mohican (Mohawk) include; Bi-hawks, Tri-hawks, Goth-hawks, flop hawks and their sub-variations.
Now more often seen worn by "poser's" and trendy kid's, more or less ruining the whole meaning and pride behind true mohican-wearer's, turning it into some sort of fasion something-or-other
