Spiky hair is one mens hairstyle that’s here to stay. Whether it’s inspired by soccer stars, Jersey Shore, or anime, spiky hair is fun, cool, and makes a statement. Here are the best products for spiky hair with tons of hold that also washes out.

In the past, hair gel was synonymous with spiked hair. Modern products have come a long way from the stiff, sticky, flaky versions of the past but gel is still out of favor for spiked dos.

How To Spike Hair  Best Products for Spiky Hair

1. Place a pea-sized dab of product on the palm of one hand. Rub hands together, spreading the product evenly across the palms and between fingers until it is heated up and transparent.

2. Work the wax into hair, starting from the nape of the neck and moving up to the forehead.

3. Using fingers, work hair up. Use a comb for a precise finish or twist strands of hair between fingers for a textured look.

4. If necessary, add more wax. Always start with a small amount of wax, adding more in stages. Over-application will create greasy, chunky hair.

5. Finally, make sure to seal the jar tightly. These products dry out quickly when exposed to air.
