Spiky Hair Cuts for Men

Spiky hair creates a wild, punk look giving you the appearance of a rock star, skater or punk. Spikes serve as a simple hair choice and offer a low-maintenance style option for those who don't mind applying hair gel or pomade. Typically, the shorter the spikes, the easier the hair style.

Messy Spikes

Messy spikes offer an easy hairstyle with few requirements. A haircut meant for messy spike styling consists of short hair of varying lengths. The cut often includes longer hair on the top of the head and shorter hair on the back of the head. To add spikes to a messy haircut, apply hair gel to clumps of strands as you push the hair upwards. Messy spikes offer an aloof, dangerous look.

Porcupine Spikes

Porcupine spikes require medium length hair. Haircuts meant for porcupine spikes typically contain short hair on the back of the head and medium length hair on the top of the head. The cut may or may not include fringe and typically includes slightly shorter hair on the sides. To achieve porcupine spikes, apply hair gel to small clumps of hair, pushing hair into a vertical direction.

Partial Spikes

Partial spike hairstyles offer a middle ground between the bold look of spikes and the neutral appearance of ordinary haircuts. Often haircuts with partial spikes feature long, side-swept fringe and shorter hair in the back and side of the head. Other haircut possibilities include short, spiked fringe and faux Mohawks in which you spike the hair on the centre of your head upwards.

Extreme Spikes

Extreme spiked hairstyles include Mohawks, liberty spikes and tri-hawks. Often seen in punk hairstyles, extreme spikes require dedication and large amounts of hair gel. A typical Mohawk hairstyle consists of a long strip of hair running along the centre of the head and short, buzz-cut hair on the rest of the head. A tri-hawk looks like a Mohawk except for the existence of a spike on each side of the centre spike. Liberty spikes consist of incredibly long hair pushed towards the sky.
