Would You Wear a Faux-Hawk Like Kim Kardashian?

10/29/2009 at 10:17 AM ET


Faux-hawks, that miniature, no-commitment (no need to shave the head!) alternative to the original punk hair sculpture, have been in style for a few years for hip guys. But at a recent pre-birthday celebration, Kim Kardashian decided to give her own glamorous variation a go. We think Kim looks gorgeous no matter what she does, but we think we’d need some professional help to create this look on ourselves. We want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you try Kim’s stylized faux-hawk?

I think its ok. Dont know if id do it!

Yes, I would. She rocks it and looks quite elegant!

I am an official “sporter” of the faux-hawk. With a short cut it looks amazing and dramatic. I have worn it straight and natural. In both cases the maintenance is simple.

You guys are right. It’s not new but I think her version is more a take on the big hair of the 60s than a faux hawk. I think faux hawks are more dramatic for shorter hair where you can spike it up a bit.

Why is she famous?

I really don’t consider this a “faux hawk”. The hairstyle looks fine on her, but it just doesn’t look like a faux hawk to me.

How can you do this type of hair style?
