some ideas here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12568.0

i would recommend pulling the sides of your hair back and pinning it down.  you might run into difficulty trying to get all of your hair up.

this guy who was a few years older than me back in high school had the most amazing mohawk ever. i mean, he had the mohawk cut, which it sounds like you don't... but he actually used elmer's glue to get it up. he'd wash his hair, comb in glue, and sleep on a towel with it all brushed out. i feel like it'd be messy and ridiculous, but would be a fun thing to try out.. if you dare.

When my hair was to my boobies I used knox gelitan. Its pretty nasty stuff though. My friend had a 1 foot hawk, she held it up in a small section, combed, hairsprayed, blow dryier, hair sprayed, blow dried (x about 3) then it stood. after she did her whole hawk she gave it quite the dousing in spray.

My boyfriend just uses Rave hairspray (I know, super early 90s!) and a blowdryer. this worked fine even when his mohawk was much "taller" than it is now. just hold a section of it up with one hand and spray with the other. then put down the spray and use that same hand to blowdry until the spray is dry...it does help to have the actual haircut, but you could probably pin the sides in or something - which would be more of a faux-hawk!

post pics when you succeed. my hair is long and curly too and i always wondered if it would work on me....

my friend uses that stuff too, and i guess it smells good cuz he always tells me to smell his hair... heh... except hes gross and he tells me it takes a long time so he does it the night begore skewl and then keeps it in for days and doesnt shower.. so i guess it lasts a long time too......

i've heard good things about Elmer's gle, apparently, you can water it down a little or just use it right from the tube.

use any kind of school glue (the cheaper the better), egg whites are used to WASH the glue out or like a stiping shampoo like Purel but egg whites are best, use it like shampoo, after you put the glue in put the cheapest hairspray you can find ALL over your hawk....thats what i used to do it and i had shoulder length hair..... This is a proven method for any hair length, you just need a helper to get the sides and back if you have long hair...let me know if you have questions...
