Default Would this look weird...?

Would appreciate some opinions on whether or not this would look funny... thanks!

Hair short at the sides (about 2cms) and then back and down towards the back and meeting at a point at the neck. So kinda a mohawk, but nothing too drastic. Or would it look better to go couple of inches up from the neck hairline so the nape and back was short too? Usually when people have mohawk styles they shave the sides short and leave a wider section (across) of longer hair at the back. I hope that makes sense.

I want to keep hair longish on top and have sides short, just not sure about the back. Thanks.

Hi SegB, thanks for replying.

I have attached some pics of Rihanna as her hair was closet I could find and similar to what I was considering anyway.

I possibly have a little too much time on my hands today...! But I've marked on in red what I mean about the difference between meeting at a point at the back of the head, or taking the short hair higher.

I wouldn't wear it as straight as in these pics, though. More like the last pic.

Hope it makes sense! : )

not gonna lie, I kind of like the last one . That' look really good if you had looser curls/waves.

I agree with SaraNoH; I like that last pic alot. Not sure about the back, but I'm kind of leaning toward the "v" shape if you want to go that short on the sides.

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
