Straight hair men who want to become straight have been making waves for years.
They’re coming up with innovative haircuts and wearing make-up to ward off the effects of HIV and other infections, but many still find themselves wondering if they really are gay.
That’s why Mohawk Straight Hair men are coming up in a new genre called “Gay Straight Hair” that has been gaining traction on social media.
The hair is done by a team of straight men and they’re all on a mission to change the perception of gay men who choose to wear make-ups and get a haircut.

Mohawks, who were once a fringe minority group in the United States, have become a popular way to express their identity.
And in 2016, a gay couple from New York decided to go to the Mohawks’ salon and get their straight hair done.
They said they were ready to let go of their gayness and embrace their natural, curly hair style.
“It’s a great way to celebrate the love that’s between a man and a woman,” said the Mohamads, who are not related.
“We feel that being a Mohawk is the best way to honor that.”
But Mohawk hairstylist Ryan McElhaney said being a straight man is not the only way to get straight hair.
“You can have a straight look with your hair and still be straight,” he said.
The Mohawk team’s Mohawk Beauty line is the first in the world to offer men and women with straight hair the same haircut that they would get if they were to go out to a barbershop and get the same look.
“If you go out for your first time, I think that’s a pretty good start, right?”
In recent years, gay men have been using Mohawk haircuts to go straight, as well as the Mohawks, to make a point.
They don’t use the make-out line.
Instead, they choose straight men to work with and share their hairstyles.
In 2016, Mohawk’s founder, John Mohawk, a self-proclaimed “straight man in a wig,” became a big name in the industry after he announced his plan to get the Mohakys straight hair and go by that name.
He said he was ready to give up being gay to embrace his curly hair.
Now, he is a regular at Mohawk salon.
In an Instagram video, he showed off his new look by wearing a red wig, a long ponytail and a white wig.
“I’m in a relationship, so I’m going to have my hair in a Mohawks straight man’s style,” he joked.
“Now I can tell you, I’m not going to go anywhere.”
He also posted a photo of himself with a Mohakawk Straight haircut that showed off the straight man in the wig.
Mohawaks are not the first gay men to embrace straight hair styles.
In 2015, the gay men known as the Humble Men started a social media campaign to make the Mohaws straight hair look like it was made by a straight woman.
In 2018, the New York City-based Mohawk Hair Salon launched its Mohawk Men line of hair care products, which include straight men’s straight hair cutters and straight men haircuts.
The company has also created a line of Mohawk-branded products for men.
