Is it just me, or is the fauxhawk the lamest form of “rebellion” ever? I keep seeing kids wearing their hair in fauxhawks, and I think it’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. I’m going to sound like a crusty old man here, but I remember the mohawk being about rebellion – you know, make yourself look thoroughly unorthodox and place yourself outside of normal society. Furthermore, shaving the best part of your head meant there was no way out, short of shaving your head bald (which was also a fairly rebellious thing to do – far more so 20 years ago than it is now). The fauxhawk, though, is a joke – there’s no commitment involved. It’s spray-on rebellion. Maybe it’s just me, but I think I’d rather look stupid than look gutless.
