How To Spike Short Hair

If you learn how to spike short hair, you can have some fun creating your own unique look. Depending on the length of your hair, you may need to trim some off of the top to make it easier to spike short hair. If your hair is too long on the top you can still spike it, but it may eventually start to droop.

Things You May Need:

  • Comb
  • Hair gel
  • Hair dryer
  • Scissors
  1. Take a shower before you spike short hair. Shampoo your hair and then remove most of the surface water with a towel, but do not dry your hair all the way. Go over to the sink and use a comb to arrange your hair like you normally do.
  2. Take some hair gel and rub it into your hair. This is the key when you want to spike short hair. A good gel will last awhile which will keep your hair looking good all day. Do some research so you can find the right kind of gel for your hair.
  3. As you rub in the hair gel, pull the hairs on your head up to spike short hair. This will take some time since you want your spiked hair to look even. Use your fingers to pull the hair up, and also slide your hair between your fingers to make sure apply all of the gel evenly.
  4. Use a hair dryer if necessary when you are trying to spike short hair. Some gels do not need you to dry your hair, so make sure that you read the instructions on the product container. After the gel dries, if you like the way your spiked hair looks you are good to go. If you need to, just add some more gel in the areas that you are unhappy with and repeat the spiking process.
