As we all know, fashion and styling trends always come back when the right time has elapsed. Mohawks are no different. They were a big hit in the 70s and 80s, especially with the punk rock movement, and the last few years brought them back to light. But what do you do if you want to pacify the punk goddess in you without having to shave your head or gel your hair in lace? Take a look at our list of braided Mohawk hairstyles and be inspired.
