Native hairstyle spreads

From the Chicago Tribune, 9/7/06:

Cutting edge for urban chic The mohawk, a solitary strip of upright hair down the middle of the scalp, has long been associated with punk rockers and other counterculture types.

But recently the hairstyle has popped up on young and old men and women in the African-American community. New incarnations vary as widely as their fans: The mohawk can be shaped with gel, shaved into a tidy patch or braided and pinned in place.
