Fauxhawk (3)

blending and clipping; noun
a hairstyle that is reminiscent of a Mohawk, but not as drastic. A Mohawk hairstyle involves shaving the sides of one’s head so that the only hair remaining is a strip of hair in the middle of their scalp. This hair is often spiked up with gel. In contrast, a fauxhawk allows the wearer to leave all the hair on their head while simply trimming the sides so that the hair in the middle is longer and can be spiked up into a low mohawkesque design.
 
Worn by many teenaged and young adult males.
Etymology : Clipping of Mohawk blended with the borrowed French word of faux, meaning false.
