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?
