I think they look better ... I know here in the UK we can get something called "Hard Head". Basically it's like a gel, but it goes super hard, perfect for really long mohawks and spikes.

First of all, it's comic relief, not relife. I doubt very much your hair is funny, and even so, it's not going to relieve stress in any situation. Secondly, if it's not serious and you are just doing it to be funny, who cares how it's done properly... just throw some crap in it and hope it works.

just find a REALLY strong gel or wax to use and it should work, alos you may need to try a bit of hairspray

if you have never had it done, try getting a brazillian done and se how many poeple will sponsor you for that 1

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

If it's only 3 inches long than gel should hold it up fine. If you want it to set rock hard then just use a bit of hairspray. My mohican is about 8 inches long and takes ages to spike up!

EDIT: Just thought I'd add that back combing it like a mother fu.cker under a hair dryer will help it to stay in place as well.

wax, and aquanet, and fauxhawks are really lame, shave the sides of your head first, and also be warned that it will take awhile, mines about 20 inches and takes about an hour and half to get it to stand up.

Another way which I find saves time is to pyscially hold it in the air with one hand, spray hairspray on it and use a hairdryer on low power to set it quickly.
I also find that it's much easier if you do the back first because it's really hard to see what you're doing when the top is spiked up.

Having said all that; the easiest thing of all is just to get your miss's to do it. They're used to fannying about with hair all the time so they can do it really quickly.

Nah, my uni'll probably ban me or something for a real Mohawk (I mean, we're supposed to be government agents, diplomats, ministers etc.), so I just have spiky hair now. Who cares...

The only reason I've got my mohican is because it really pisses my bosses off at work. I know they want to sake me but as it says nothing in my contract about apperarence they can't do squat

Elmers glue, and a layer of Maximum strength Got 2 b Glued Hairspray for reinforcement.

Also, using a hairstraightener istead of a blowdryer can work better.

What do you mean? When My hair used to be short enough to spike, I would use elmer's glue and hairspray all the time, and never had problems.
