Wasn't sure where should go, but anyway...

Has anyone noticed since the BET Awards (if you watched it, BET has become a sad excuse for black television) when Jada* rocked a frohawk a lot of young women have been wearing their own version of it? Instead of even bothering to get a "kinky weave", their using straight weave and cornrowing the sides of their hair till it sticks out...well, it doesn't stick out, just lays down. Everywhere I look at school I see that same doggone weave hawk, for the lack of a better name. I just don't understand it :icon_headshake: .

I know, I know...natural hairstyles on chemicalized (haha, I like that word) women aren't anything new, but I never woulda thought they'd pull something like this off, especially with their own version of it.

*Come to think of it, was Jada's hair natural?

On that TLC show R U the Girl that girl that won, O'so crispy, had a style like that with her styles braided and the middle straight but I think that was all her own hair. I don't think that was Jada's natural hair but don't quote me on that. I haven't seen anyone try a frohawk with braided sides or otherise that wasn't already natural though walking around here.

the mohawk was never a "natural style" first. so it doesn't bother me.

Lol, no, it doesn't bother me, just kind of amazes me.

Oh yeah, I called it a natural style because I've never seen it done with weave before. I kinda clumped everyone in the mix there (caucasians, blacks, ect). A year ago most people I know would have said a hawk wasn't all that cute and only a "white person's style". :dunno:

Same thing I was thinking. The mohawk has many variations.

I don't think the OP was "hating" she was simply stating that she didn't understand why they had the hawk laying down. From my understanding hawks are supposed to stick up

No need to switch your position ;)

You said "I know, I know...natural hairstyles on chemicalized (haha, I like that word) women aren't anything new, but I never woulda thought they'd pull something like this off, especially with their own version of it"

...so that's why I said what I said. IMO, everything you said indicates that you think it's "our" style and they are copying. :dunno: The mohawk isn't and has never been soley a natural style. It was invented by Native Americans a longggggggg time ago so if anyone has a right to feel their style was "jacked" it's them.

Well, when they came back in style, the first place I saw them was on NP. But it didn't come back in style because of NPers, so I don't think it was jacked.

In Niger tuareg children (boys) wear mohawks too, its a traditional style. ( I just had to add my :2cents: pence! ^_^ ) I dunno maybe other peoples do it too. But i don&#39;t think its a natural hairstyle per se.

EXACTLY and IMO Jada&#39;s hairstyle was a mohawk, not a frohawk, there was nothing fro&#39;ish about her hair. People are basically wearing mohawks in different textures, a frohawk is simply the name of a mohawk made on nappy hair.

I can&#39;t wait for the whole mohawk or frohawk thing to disappear

i love the mohawk in most of its variations... but i agree it does not look so great unless the hair stands up at least a little!

unless your sides are shaved down you don&#39;t have a mohawk, regardless of whether you&#39;re natural, re.laxed, black, white, brown, red, or yellow. you&#39;re sporting a facsimilie of the mohawk, otherwise known as the faux hawk. :2cents:

the faux hawk or "fashion mohawk" or "model mohawk" as my sister and I like to call it was very popular on the runway last year all done with straight hair
