For centuries, men have sought to express themselves and their identity through hairstyle. From the Mohawk to the Caesar to the French Fade, some of the most iconic men’s hairstyles have come to define the look of generations.

Here, in the first part of our blog series on the subject of men’s hairstyles, we’ll look at the history of three of the most iconic men’s hairstyles and how they’ve evolved throughout the years.

The Mohawk Hairstyle and Its Origins

Are you looking for an amazing Mohawk haircut? The Mohawk is one of the most iconic men’s hairstyles of all time. Its origins can be traced back to the Native Americans of the Iroquois Confederacy. The Iroquois would shave their heads except for a strip of hair running down the middle of the head, which was believed to protect them during battle.

The Mohawk hairstyle eventually spread to the rest of North America and Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries, where it became popular among punk and rock musicians in the late 1970s. Today, the Mohawk is a popular men’s haircut, featuring a shaved head with a strip of longer hair running down the middle.

Fino for Men’s master barbers in Summerlin and Las Vegas can style a thin or wide Mohawk for you, and crop it to best suit your appearance.  If you want it closely cut or high hair design, Fino’s barbers in Vegas and Summerlin can style something that is otherworldly and have you become the envy of all of your friends.

The History of the Caesar Hairstyle

The “Caesar” is another classic men’s hairstyle that has been popular for centuries. Named for Julius Caesar, the style features short, layered hair on the top of the head with a fringe of bangs. The style was popularized in the 1960s and 70s, when actors like Telly Savales and Richard Gere sported the look. The Caesar has since become a staple of men’s fashion, and is still popular today. 

At Fino for Men, their artist master barbers can cut a Caesar style if this is what you are seeking, or provide a variation that is more appealing to you or fits your goals more than the traditional Caesar haircut.

The French Fade Hairstyle and Its History

The French Fade is a modern men’s hairstyle that has quickly become one of the most popular haircuts of the 21st century. The style features short hair on the sides with a gradual fade to longer hair on the top. The French Fade was popularized in the early 2000s by French football players and soon spread to the rest of Europe and the United States. The French Fade is an ideal men’s haircut for those who want a stylish and modern look.  There are variations of the French Fade that Fino for Men’s stylists can create just to fit your look and style in a way few other barbers can ever achieve.  They will leave you looking your best, no question about it.

The history of men’s hairstyles is a long and varied one, and these three iconic styles have been popular for centuries.
