Spiky Kids Hairstyles

Spiky kids hairstyles can save the day if you have a younger boy who seems to have hair all over the place, looks mangled and tangled by the time he hits school in the morning.

If you are constantly nagging him to get that hair out of his eyes, it may be time for a short spiky haircut.

If hair is cut short enough on top, you can eliminate styling gel and blow drying. You can train the hair to go back and up as the style is worn over a period of time.

Rub your hands together and spread the gel evenly over your hair from the front hairlines to the bottom back. Then comb through and style.

2. Apply a little gel to your fingertips and then rub down into your roots while you lift strands for added body.

If you want to define hair texture or have a more messier or tousled look for longer spikes apply a little gel spray to fingertips and just pinch small clumps of your hair using a up and forward motion.
