Jim Carrey Debuts a Mohawk: Love It or Hate It?

He may be pushing 50, but Jim Carrey can rock a rebellious hairdo any day! The actor recently surfaced in Los Angeles sporting a sky-high mohawk, with shaved sides and all. It’s certainly a big change from his usual look, and a complete 180 from the long locks he sported several years ago. The normally chatty actor hasn’t said a word about his new look on Twitter … yet. Perhaps he’s testing the style out for a new role? Regardless, Carrey isn’t the first California guy to step out with a mohawk: Mark Salling works the look on Glee, Brody Jenner experimented with the hairstyle last year, and Kevin Federline shaved the sides of his head for a 2008 appearance on One Tree Hill. Even pint-sized stars have tried the trend: Kingston Rossdale and Maddox Jolie-Pitt are both known for their similar styles. Could the mohawk be making a comeback? Tell us: What do you think of Carrey’s mohawk?

I’m not one for mohawks, but then again it is Jim Carrey. And, he’s a wild and crazy guy.

He needs to rememebr his age. I think he looks like a 49 y/o man trying to look 25. He’s a GRANDFATHER and this makes him look stupi. Grow up man. The only alternative to growing old is death. Embrace it. You’re almost 50!

Hope that is for a part in a movie. He is NOT all that good looking to begin with & that surely doesn’t help

So…it’s not so much a mohawk-I’m a stylist and would not consider it one. I like the cut okay but a true mohawk has bald shaved sides and is much more narrow-this has the entire top section and back longer and sides are about a #2 clipper. He looks cute with the glasses!
