How To Spike Your Hair
To spike your hair, you’ll want to wash your hair to remove any previous product and be able to start with a clean head of hair. Towel dry your hair, but leave it slightly damp to make it easier to work with. If you have curly or wavy hair, use a comb to straighten your hair and work out any knots or tangles.
Styling short spiky hair is a little easier since your hair has less weight to it. For short spiky hairstyles, scoop up some styling product with your fingers and work it into your hair, continuously going front to back. For messy spiky hair, use a lighter styling wax or pomade instead of styling glue. Make sure the product doesn’t clump in any one spot and is evenly distributed throughout. Now grab handfuls of your hair and start pulling them up to create the spike. You can direct and hold each in place for 5 to 10 seconds.
For long spiky hair, repeat the same steps, but use a stronger hair gel or styling product and possibly blow dry your hair to ensure the hold. Afterwards, you can even apply some hairspray to keep wavy or frizzy hair in place.
