Jim Carrey Debuts a Mohawk: Love It or Hate It?

Jim Carrey MohawkFlynet (2)

He may be pushing 50, but Jim Carrey can rock a rebellious hairdo any day! The actor recently surfaced in Los Angeles sporting a sky-high mohawk, with shaved sides and all. It’s certainly a big change from his usual look, and a complete 180 from the long locks he sported several years ago. The normally chatty actor hasn’t said a word about his new look on Twitter … yet. Perhaps he’s testing the style out for a new role? Regardless, Carrey isn’t the first California guy to step out with a mohawk: Mark Salling works the look on Glee, Brody Jenner experimented with the hairstyle last year, and Kevin Federline shaved the sides of his head for a 2008 appearance on One Tree Hill. Even pint-sized stars have tried the trend: Kingston Rossdale and Maddox Jolie-Pitt are both known for their similar styles. Could the mohawk be making a comeback? Tell us: What do you think of Carrey’s mohawk?

I do not like J C’s Mowhawk. It’s time to grow up.

Debbie on

Mid life crisis?!?!

alisa on

I love it! It definitely suits his personality. He can pull it off.

Angie on

He looks great! Suits him totally!

Yvonne on

Love it. Love him.

Nicole on

I like it! He stands out which equals more publicity. You go Jim! Love, always a fan

NM on

I’m not one for mohawks, but then again it is Jim Carrey. And, he’s a wild and crazy guy.

Sandy on

He needs to rememebr his age. I think he looks like a 49 y/o man trying to look 25. He’s a GRANDFATHER and this makes him look stupi. Grow up man. The only alternative to growing old is death. Embrace it. You’re almost 50!

Rachel Henscheid on

I like the mohawks of Jim Carreys hair do your biggest fan Rachel Henscheid.

TEXAS13 on

Hope that is for a part in a movie. He is NOT all that good looking to begin with & that surely doesn’t help

Perry on

he looks healthy happy and happy. I am happy for him. go Jim!

Jana T. on

So…it’s not so much a mohawk-I’m a stylist and would not consider it one. I like the cut okay but a true mohawk has bald shaved sides and is much more narrow-this has the entire top section and back longer and sides are about a #2 clipper. He looks cute with the glasses!

Robo on

LOOK AT ME!!! LOOK AT ME!!!! PLEASE LOOK AT ME !!!!!

Lena on

It screams: Mid-life Crisis.

stephanie on

love it. always.

Debra on

It’s Jim Carrey. He can be bald and I still love him.

spanish fly on

OMG! perfect for him and his funny, crazy behavior! enjoy!

Angela on

He looks great!!! He pulls off a mohawk better than any of the young posers now-a-days!!!

Leanne on

I love it. Jim ROCKS!!

iluvmychis on

I can’t say that I really like it but it does fit his personality. Can’t argue with that. LOL

Carolina on

Are you kidding? He looks retarded and immature. What well-adjusted man around 50 would wear their hair like this? Come on, he looks like a man who can’t accept that he’s older.
And this is from someone who like Jim Carrey as an actor!

Ali on

I LOVE IT! I think he has always been so handsome! It totally goes with his crazy personality!

Julia on

Love the new look and also love that he isn’t afraid to try new looks. Jim is in great shape for pushing 50!

pia on

love jim

Jon on

I like it and The PHOTO! Also, I’m glad Reese Whiterpsoon’s Husband got The Seal of Approval from a few of her Southernters!

Douglas Quaid on

A rounded buzzcut with slightly taller bangs is not a mohawk.

Diamond on

I LOVE IT!!!! IT FITS HIM!!! IT KINDA MAKES HIM LOOK BETTER!!!! :)

Cheshire on

That’s not a mohawk. That’s a high fade at best…

Aurinna on

I agree with all of you.. it fits his personality!
it’s fun & young..love it!

Ellie on

Next unsub on Criminal Minds?

erika on

HATE it… I miss his longer hair. Kind of sexy in a goofy kind of way…

Kurtis Muniz on

That is not a mohawk. That’s the love child of a high & tight and a feauxhawk.
Regardless, suits him well enough. But who are we to judge? It’s his hair.

adelaide on

i love it!!!!! en u really look good

Darcy on

Love it. Suits him perfectly :)

George on

That isn’t a mohawk. Oh, and a mohawk hasn’t been “rebellious” since the 80s. Sorry, try again.

Jim Carrey Can Change His Hair – Why Can’t You? - Beauty Collection Blog | Beauty Collection Blog on

[...] Jim Carrey stays young through his humor…and now his hair.  Yesterday he debuted a brand new ‘do for the Summer, this rock and roll inspired mohawk.  Folks, this isn’t your average faux-hawk, this is the real deal – with shaved sides and a spiked top.  People’s Style Watch caught the hair-do in action, and encourages you to try it out for yourself.  I took them up on their challenge, and while I won’t be going blond anytime soon, it was fun to play around with.  Get your own look here and come back and show it off in the comments!
