Bed Head hair supplies has something that keeps your hair really hard for a long time. I'm not sure of the name...rock star or gungy something. But you can find bed head stuff almost everywhere (they have it at wal-mart) so check it out.

i've used egg whites & elmer's glue (now more washable!)  egg whites shouldn't smell if you get all the yolk out.  i usually put my hair up with the whites when it's long & set it with the glue. 


but i don't think pink is really sporting a faux-hawk, it's more of the eighties poof where you tied your hair in a pony tail, pulled a front chunk forward & sprayed some aqua net.  faux-hawks are when you have short boy-type hair & smush it into a mohawk with pomade. i like the men's crew pomade, it's watersoluble unlike beeswax or the petroleum jelly stuff.

Hey!

I often do my hair similarly to that - kind of a combo fauxhawk/pompador/80's 'do. A hairdryer, Aqua Net and a little bit of backcombing should be all you need! You also may want to try blowing your hair dry upside down with lots of gel first to get that extra poof in front. Then just spray your hair up in the front, then back comb a bit when it is dry to achieve desired height, smooth lightly with a comb or brush, spray again, slick/pull back the sides as you like, maybe throw in a bobby pin or two if needed to keep things tite, and there ya go! A little bit of pomade on the sides might also help keep it nice and slick, depending on what type of hair you have and what effect you are going for. If you have really unruly or thick hair, flat ironing (like a crimping iron, only no crimps!) the front up might help.

Good Luck!
