Law School Chancellors Reviewing 16-Year-Old Movies: Frank Wu of UC Hastings on Ronin (1998)

It’s so nice to encounter kids today re-embracing the true mohawk style of hair design.

You see, that David Beckham with his fauxhawk copout has led some people astray. (Imagine attempting to get a mohawk look without the necessary backcombing and head shaving! Mr. Beckham really has some nerve coopting legitimate punk style.)

Three cheers for the real deal, as seen at the 2008 Haight Street Fair:
