Nicole Amber Matthews, 38, wore a braided pink Mohawk.

On the sides of her head, she used hair dye to show her support for breast cancer awareness month with a pink ribbon.

Matthews showed off the hair style, while taking a mugshot after Champaign County deputies arrested her for driving with a suspended license in Illinois.

Matthews got to keep the hairstyle, because she was sentenced to serve a month in house arrest for her traffic violation.

She was booked October 15, but social media users were sharing her mugshot Monday, after The Smoking Gun  and the New York Daily News picked it up.
