The burst fade mohawk, also known as the South of France fade, was popularized by famous R&B singer Usher Raymond. The burst fade haircut offers a classy, clean alternative to the typically spiky mohawk hairstyle and features a wide faux hawk on top with a burst fade on the sides. For those who are not familiar with the burst fade, it refers to a taper fade that follows the curvature of the ear and bursts outwards as the hair fades into the neckline.
While the Usher mohawk has traditionally looked best as a cool haircut for black men, burst fade mohawk hairstyles also work for white guys and other men who like the style. Check out the top burst fade mohawk haircuts below for some trendy and stylish styles!
