So, I'm going to show you in this video how to spike the hair on top. So, right now Chris' hairs just down and flat. It's quite easy to take sections across, straight up, and literally just go in and point at diagonal intervals all the way through the hair. So, you're taking out the weight in certain areas only, so we're going down and getting shorter in here. So, take away from the straight edge and, literally, just go in and make those points all the way through the top. Make sure you do it in the temple areas the same way. Point at an angle. And, again, just go in, point at an angle, and the shorter and the longer lengths give you that spiky look through the top.
