#1 THE FROHAWK

11 11 2009

hawkTHE INAUGURAL TOPIC ON IMCOOLONTHAT.COM DERIVES FROM ICON P. DIDDY, DIRECTOR BRIAN BARBER, AND EVEN THE OVERLY TATTOO’D YOUNGSTER… SOULJA BOY , along with countless other “POST-MR.T- ERA” Celebs,  that have graced our presence with what was once considered an Honorable Tribal Hairdoo, then turned Rebellious Punk Rocker’s Hairdoo, which has now mutated into some bullshit which we now call………

THE FROHAWK.

At first glance, I gathered that the reasoning for getting such haircut was for a man to appear taller, especially since a Frohawk will give the illusion of an added 2-3 inches in height. After realizing that I was only somewhat correct,  I was forced to delve a little deeper into the psychology of “WHY” the Frohawk exists. It’s much deeper than one’s personal FEELING of insecurity in height or stature.  There is actually a TYPE of Person who is more prone to choose this style of Hair Snobbery. See, every guy has that one friend, who in an attempt to be different, will try to set himself a part from the crew, to get a little attention. It’s usually a type of guy, who I define as a “Rudolph”  (Yes, like the Reindeer that would DIE if he wasn’t the Center of Attention) A Rudolph usually is that Star Football player, or Wanna-be R&B Singer (who’s never getting a deal) or that Overly-Fashion-Forward Guy that always dresses a little too “Kanye”. Yeah, you know him!!!  This cocky and usually outspoken person can’t wait to show off his latest innovation in Haircut Foolishness. In my opinion, I simply believe that this haircut is their outward CRY FOR HELP and I truly…truly… PITY THE FOOL!

As a Man, I wouldn’t even know how to approach a barber with such request. I can only imagine what this confused person sounds like after a Barber asks him:

BARBER: “How you want cho, haircut?”

RUDOLPH: “Yeah, so.. maybe…kinda cut it down on the sides, and gimmie like…ahhh..kinda…like what Puffy had…but kinda like..the guy from the A-Team, but kinda not…but still along those lines, and leave it sorta long on top…but…with a lil bit of a fade..if you know what I mean.”

Twenty five dollars later, this young gentleman emerges from the barber shop feeling like a new man, but not knowing that he’s really looking like a  NAPPY ASS PEACOCK.   Poor Fella. LOL

There are a lot of things I am cool WITH…but THE FROHAWK???

…I’M COOL ON THAT!!

Hilarious! You are a great writer. I totally enjoyed your blog. Just as good as watching TV. On the Frohawk, if done well it can be cute on younger brothers, young, 20s and under.

Man, so many people feel like they need attention. People need to find their own lane. My barber told me I should get a Mohawk the other day cause that’s what everybody’s getting…I was like nah. I’ll Pass. I got my own steez. The type of people that you described usually have what’s called an inferiority complex or delusions of grandeur….silly fools…lol

As youngsters, we try different styles. When I was young I dyed my hair red and had it shaved on the sides like Lisa Lisa, that was the style. We wore Doc Martins and neon clothes. But youngsters have to do that, they have to go through that foolish, attention getting stage. It’s a part of growing up and developing your own sense of self. HOWEVER, there is NO EXCUSE for GROWN ASS MEN to walk around with their heads looking like that (PERIOD)!

HILARIOUS!!
I’ve been a barber for quite a while and it’s true that it takes a certain type of person to request that cut, lol… They’ve never really been too uniquely stylish or have ever broken any fashion rules and all of a sudden, they decide to become ‘a little bit daring’ by getting a “safely different” style…
(I call it a ”baby-hawk”) NOT a full-blown HAWK, but a little tiny ‘hint-of-a-hawk’.
When the stylishly-unique person sports a funky doo, it fits.
But it visually disturbs me when i see the ”conservative office geek”, the ”chuuuch man”, the ”thug” (and ppl who’ve alwayz scoffed the unique-artsy folkz) ALL OF A SUDDEN gettin a HAWK & listenin to CORN!
(…and they alwayz look SUPA-foolish cuz it ain’t them!)
Everythang ain’t for everybody!
I would never advise a client to get a style that’s “in” or that doesn’t fit they steez… So they could look crazy, lol?? No.

**Thanks for yet, anotha great writing.

Yeah… I was cool on this Haircut the Second day it Resurfaced…. More than likely cause I don’t have the hairline to execute that type of Do!

Nile, shame on you! Calling a fro-hawk “Hair Snobbery” is in itself is ludicrous. Hair Idiocy, Hair Retardation maybe, Snobbery, hardly! The frohawk AND/OR the fauxhawk should just be allowed to die! It was cute about 4 years ago when it was only being sported by little boys under the age of 10. The style that used to make me go “awww! did you see the little boy rocking the hawk??” now makes me want to punch the wearer in the neck! i am SO with Queen on the “Types” also… gotta just adore Poindexter pimping the pocket protector AND the hawk. Its almost too much for a lady to deal with!

Granted some i mean a very few look good wit it it’s just not the style to just go do especially if you just a brotha in the streets. How you gonna go on a job interview with a fro hawk and your name on the side of yo head? smh,smh..lol..

Frohawks are cutie on little boys, same for braids. But for a grown man, shave yourself! I like a clean shaved man, face and head. But to talk about men and hair what’s up with men and “taco meat” on their chest! LOL!

Very funny blogs. I am laughing @ the frohawk. It was mad enough some people are already facially challenged but to butcher themselves with that a def. no no. and to think that wearing a frohawk with a 3000 suit is even classy bahaaa… But what do I know lmao I think baseball cap and jeans looks good.

rofl @ the church blog…when I am in church on Sundays…I can tell who is there to snag a man , who was panties on, who slept w/ a hubby that was not her’s they are so obivious it is funny.

I am glad we can laugh about our quirks and how we are as ppl ty so much

You ever seen the “drop the pilot”? Aight, braid the hair at the ront, sides and back, but leave a YOUNG CHUNK on the top-front of the head, which just HANGS and drops forward, usually over the eye. This look up here? – ain’t got NOTHIN on what we work with…

it depends on the hawk. If it’s faded right and not too high on the top, it don’t look that crazy, sometimes you can’t even tell and it looks like a high fade. When it’s like Puff’s here it might be a lil much but even then it aint that bad to me. It’s not soo much about age as it is hairline.
