How Do You Spike Short Hair on Men?

Some hairstyles have never gone out of style and, luckily, one of these hairstyles is the spiked style. In order to spike the hair, a comb, hair gel and a hairdryer are needed. This hairstyle can be achieved in approximately five minutes, making it one of the fastest and easiest ways to style hair.

  1. Take a shower

    Shampoo the hair. Do not dry the hair all the way, as some moisture must remain in order for the hair gel to work effectively. Make sure to comb the hair as usual to remove all tangles.

  2. Rub the hair gel through the hair

    Take a small amount of gel and rub it through the hair, pulling it up to achieve the spiked look. Make sure to coat it evenly throughout the hair, using more gel if needed. A good gel will keep the hair standing on end all day and make the spiked style look great.

  3. Use a hair dryer

    Using a hair dryer will speed up the drying process of the gel, although some gels don't require this step. Make sure to read the product instructions on the container to know whether or not a hair dryer will be needed. After drying, the spikes will stand strong and should last nearly all day.
