Welcome to Librarium Online!
I don't know how the rest of you feel, but personally, I hate the GW fascination with mohawks. How can we get the British to understand that mohawks aren't that cool or badass? Should we mail the GW home office a style magazine, with all the pages that show current hairdos marked?
Honestly, even during the 1980's when mohawks were sorta cool, they weren't THAT cool.
Please GW... drop the mohawks. Shaved heads are way cooler now adays. So are more normal haircuts.
Warhammer isn't based on current style and/or fashion, it's a fantasy world.
EDIT: 'Mohawks' were also used a lot in Roman armies, which are similar to a lot of Warhammer armies.
I'm not sure what you mean. The only models I can think of at the moment who have mohawks are the Ultramarine Honour Guard and Dire Avengers. I actually think there are more topknots than mohawks...
Could you give some examples?

Posting and You
Dwarf slayers are the only models I can think of in fantasy that have them?
aut viam inveniam aut faciam / I'll either find a way or make one.
Mohawks don't really bother me, but I do hate that topknot.
Heretic! Mohawks are the coolest haircut in the world after the Prussian military cut! Every army should have them, including Sisters of Battle!
There's a few figures with actual 'hawks floating around. Escher and Goliath gangers from Necromunda, Catachans, and of course Dwarf Slayers. They were much more common on the old models (SM Scouts come to mind). I disagree with the above comment, 'hawks are the shit. If I ran GW I'd bring them back in force. Especially with Sisters
Kroot don't have mohawks...besides, their heads are very birdlike.
Some of my Cadians have mohawk heads from the Catachan range, I think they fit quite well. Depends on the army, long hair and top knots would look daft on Cadians practically any officer would have you on a charge for presenting the enemy with a nice handle, on Eldar mohawks, as a hair style, would look pretty severe for pretty boy Space Elves.
