How to Spike Hair Into A Mohawk at Home

Updated on September 12, 2012

Gothic Mohawk

The Mohawk hairstyle (also known as Mohican) with its mere appearance shows that its wearer is rather a creative and original person. Its origin dates back to the ancient times when such a way of adorning oneself was used by American Indians, namely, the tribes called the Mohawks. In the twentieth century, this used to be a punk hairdo until other subcultures adapted it to their own demands.

The Main Types of a Mohawk

There typically are three main kinds of the Mohawk: the classical one, which is at the same time the most radical; the thorny Mohawk, and the gothic one.

  • The classical style, as the most impatient of contradictions, will require a hair trimmer that is to be used at the sides of one’s head. They get shaved, but in the middle, joining forehead and the rear part of one’s head, there is a narrow strip of hair of diverse length, which is being erected with the help of some styling means.
  • The thorny one is different in the way the crest is done: it is formed into the spikes that resemble a dragon’s back from the pictures.
  • And finally the gothic style is the most modernized one, as it requires only shaved temples, and this is not obligatory to get rid of the rest of locks surrounding the crest.

How to Spike It

Yet, this hairstyle can be repeated on any possible hair type of any length. For a more worldly variant of the Mohawk this is even not necessary to shave anything. In order to create it on one’s head, it is necessary to have just a styling means that will be strong enough to fix the style and protect it against the ruining effect of weather.

So, in order to create a Mohawk look, this is necessary to wash one’s head well and then to dry hair with the help of a fan with one’s hair bowed low. If it is possible, hands should participate in the process helping locks lie in the wanted order. While the hair is a little wet, it is possible to start applying a styling, namely, Got2B Glued Blasting Freeze Spray. This will allow keeping hair from falling before another coat of styling will be applied. For instance, if you need to have a spiked thorny Mohawk, this is necessary to divide your hair into parts; each will represent another spike. In order to fix them, you should use rubber bands, but before processing each strand, the bands will be taken off one after another. So, take the first strand and holding it upright, fix the roots with the help of the Freeze Spray and distribute it with your fingers evenly. It is also possible to tease your hair beside the roots a little. Then, holding the strand tight and upright, dry the roots with the help of a hairdryer. Then apply the styling onto the ends and straightening them get them dry as well. This will make your hair stand, but in case it is quite long, this may be necessary to secure the fixation with the help of extra gel, wax or mousse. The shorter the hair is, the easier it will be to create such a style. But even with long hair it is quite possible to have a really impressive look though it will take quite a considerable while.

The Cool Effects

A Mohawk for long hair will require a lot of patience, as each strand may need to be backcombed thoroughly with a thick comb before applying any styling means. Though, the outstanding look that it will have is well worth the efforts. Optionally, this is possible to add some colours to one’s head, and dye separate parts of the crest with the help of easily washed away toners. This will look especially spectacular with a spiky Mohawk style, when each of them will have a separate colour or anything that imagination can offer. This is interesting that such styles can be done even of curly hair, as the styling means that are applied to it will help to straighten strands. If it does not work, this is possible to resort to a straightener.
