Short-haired ladies don't have to be stuck in a style rut just because they're tresses are cropped. Short hair can be whipped into different styles too. If you're looking to go a little edgy, try putting your short 'do up in a mohawk. Once you're sure you've got the hair to pull it off, the rest is just in the details.


A pixie cut can be super cute and even girly. If you're tired of the sweet and innocent look, it can be easily shaved into a mohawk. Just ask model Agyness Deyn. She shaved her famous pixie on either side, just leaving a bit of hair in the middle, going from perky pixie to rocker chic just by shaving off a little bit of hair.

Partially-Shaved Mohawk

If you don't want to commit to shaving off both sides of your hair, try just one. This works for hair as short as a pixie and anything longer. After lopping off one side of your hair, comb the rest over to the other side to make the look more drastic. If you decide you want to take it a little farther later, you can always shave the other side.

Buzz Cut Mohawk

Instead of shaving your hair clean off on both sides, try getting one or both sides shaved low, so you still have some hair but there's a noticeable difference between the lengths. It's a more palatable way to transition to the edgier style. Or, if you don't want to work your way up to a full shave, just stick with the low cut.

Braided Mohawk

If you don't want to cut your tresses, try braiding your hair into a mohawk. Opting for a faux hawk gives you the same look without committing to the cut. To pull it off, hair is cornrowed up toward the center of the head and the rest of the hair is left loose. If your hair is long enough, try curling free hair into tiny ringlets.
