You can use variety in this style by including more than a strip but do not use more than 4 strips or it will spoil the look of the style. Most people prefer to wear this style in a single strip to get that trendy look. The hair needs to stand up very evenly to get the desired look and it should be carefully separated into different spikes.

Emo Hair

When your hair is cut with the help of a razor in an uneven fashion and it leaves fringes in the front portion of your head, it is known as emo hair. These fringes hang down in such a manner that they cover one of your eyes entirely.

A person can experiment this spiky hairstyle in various ways and introduce spikes in various patterns when going for this kind of a hairstyle. This style is more popular amongst young men who either spike all their hair or sometimes create different patterns of rows of spikes.


This hairstyle is a little similar to Mohawk but the difference lies in the fact the hair on both the sides of the head are not shaven off completely. In this style, the hair on the sides is cut to a shorter length while the strip of hair in the centre is left long.


The long hair is then made into spikes using a pattern of fan or liberty which are quite similar to that of Mohawk. This spiky hairstyle is gaining a lot of popularity nowadays as men do not need to shave their head to own this style but just cut it shorter instead.


This hairstyle is given the name because after the spikes are formed they stand up on the head like that of the quills of a porcupine. The hair should be absolutely straight to achieve this look. The spikes created in this style are much smaller than those in liberty style and are much more in number.

What sets it apart from others is that in this style random spikes are used all over the head instead of those in a single strip. This kind of a hairstyle is very loud in itself and that is the reason that not many people opt for it easily.
