The"blowout" hair style is achieved by the combination of both a temple fade hair cut:
and a styling product strong enough (such as spiking glue) to hold all hair straight and in the same direction. The difference is that short hair often stands straight on its own, but these guys style it that way when their hair would normally lay flat or curl or what have you. Still, one may have longer spikey styles such as a mohawk, faux hawk, or messy/chunky spikes without falling into the blowout category.
