The name probably comes from the word "faux," which means fake in French. A fake mohawk - sides are not shaved. The fohawk appears like a mohawk when it is spiked with hair gel, but because the hair on the side of your head is longer, a person can wear it down as well.

David Beckham had a fohawk.
Fohawks are cheezy, just look at the mohawk in the 80's.

A awsome haircut worn by the Englands national team captain, David Becham, short hair on either sides of your head then longer in the middle that does not have to be spiked up or anything. It's sweet.
Bechams fohawk is awsome!

How retards spell "fauxhawk", or a full head of hair combed into the middle to fabricate the look of a mohawk.
lulz look at my scene fohawk!! Hur hur.

I'm sophisticated, and I have a sexy fauxhawk. Did you know that "faux" means "false" in French? It makes sense, because this totally isn't a real mohawk.

a posers mohawk, it is spiked in the middle on the top of the head. instead of shaving the sides and leaving a 2-3 inch strip in the middle(even in the back) they have hair al over the head, mostly on top, all the hair on top is pulled towards the middlel it looks like shit.
The fag from Good Charlotte has a fohawk. ha ha ha

The word fohawk means fashionable mohawk. It began in Europe/UK as most modern fashion ideas do and now comes in many different styles. It is very commomn now on runway models, especially females.

Kind of like a Moahwk but the people arent brave enough to shave the sides on their heads. Sure it looks cool...But its better with the sides of your head shaved
ex.1) Its not right for a wigger to have a Fohawk.
ex.2) The dude chickened out when he tried to get a mohawk so he just got a fohawk
ex.3)Person 1: my head looks like a penis when its i just wont get a mohawk (sobs)
Person 2: NO!! I have an idea! Get a FOHAWK!!!
