How To Do A Faux Hawk Hairstyle
George from Pall Mall Barbers shows viewers the complete process of cutting a faux hawk hairstyle from start to finish using clippers, scissors, a hair dryer, and Pall Mall Brothers Matte Mudd to finish the look.
Hi. Today, we will be demonstrating how to do a faux hawk. First thing's first, I will be taking the #2 up to where the temple is, approximately about there, leaving this section here and here to where we will be growing up as a pyramid shape.
Now, the two will be followed around, across here, and we'll be doing the exactly same thing on the other side, bringing it right around into the neck creating a semi-V into the neck. Alright, so taking the #2, as I get to this part here, I will be pulling across and down. Cue comb in the hair.
Just pulling the ear back. The trick is also to stand back, looking at the hair, and if you're too close, you look too above it, and your visualization is not so good. Do the same again on the other side.
Bringing it across down again like we did on the other side. Alright, so, I'm bringing it across, stand straight across the neck here, I can see my angle into a V. V for victory.
Alright, grabbing the small clippers, this is where I come over across the hairline, curving it down always. Now, I'm just trying to create a slightly natural hairline here with the clippers. Alright, so what we have here, slightly more weighted around here, so what I want to do is take the #1, just bring that up across here, just take out and totally define the line a little bit, all the way across.
Now, with the zero, I'm just tapering it into the hairline. Just on these edges here, so you have a nice blend. With my texture scissors, I will be texturizing, blending it in, texturing and blending at the same time.
There is also another method which we can use: taking the normal scissors and point cutting. So, you can also point cut across. There are quite a few different methods you can use.
These are two I have just shown you. There is another one more, which is grabbing the razor and just ever so slightly, and it creates a slight feathered look, so you've got that movement coming across there, and we'll probably do the same as we get to the top here. And we do the exact same thing on the other side.
So, my desired length at the top here where the ridge is, this is my ridge at the top here, I want to keep that as long as possible. Now, what I want to do is just bring this at an angle, and just ever so slightly texture here by dropping into it all the way across to where the crown area is. So what you're doing is creating a flow into what I like to call a pyramid, same on the other side.
Just taking a few excess hairs to the around, making sure that they're both even on either side. Just blow drying all the loose hair, pointing it in its direction, helping it through before you put all the products in and style it up. We just grab some of our Pall Mall Barbers Matte Mudd, just a little bit into our fingertips, rub it into our palm, and then just glide it into the hair, making sure we get it into all through the hair, too.
Now, what we want to do is just create that roundness there, which you can just start pinching it with your fingers. Alright, so this is how we do a faux hawk hairstyle. .
