How to Make a Mohawk With Short Hair

by Jessica Collins ; Updated September 28, 2017

The mohawk is a classic hairstyle that became popular with punk rockers in the early 80s. Learn how to create this edgy hair style with short hair in this simple tutorial.

This look requires a comb, gel, and hairspray. Start by combing the sides of the hair down.

Separate out the hair that will go up in the mohawk and comb this hair forward.

Apply a dime size amount of gel and slick down the sides and back of your hair.

Apply another dime size amount of product to your hands and apply to the sectioned hair.

Comb both sides of the sectioned hair to the middle of the crown.

Add more gel to the hands and bring the two sections of hair together upwards, pressing the hands together to slowly form a mohawk.

Run the hair between your palms making sure the hair catches the gel to hold the hair in place.

Apply a generous amount of hair spray to your mohawk. Be sure to apply from root to tip.

Enjoy your new edgy mohawk.
