Here is what I use to spike my hair: I use mouse and then dry it up with a blower and for the color you can use one of those spray things.

Cheap as hell suave hairspray works great. I use it for my real extreme hairstyles and it holds wicked good! Just don't comb it after it's totally dry cuz if flakes a lot.

For my Sora costume, I used hair cement by in the Zone. But this leaves your hair in more of a solid chunk state than a fluffy, J-Rocker type state.

For my Utena wig I used extra super hold Aqua Net hairspray. It holds really well and doesn't flake. n__n

I'm a big fan of hair glue, but I think that's mostly because it's called "hair glue." I'm silly that way.

For getting your hair white (snow-white), Ben Nye sells hair paint. You should be able to get it at better costume shops, theatrical shops, and a bunch of places online. It also makes your hair a little stiff, though it doesn't flake off too much if it's applied well and you don't need too much of it. It may be a bit of a trick to whiten your hair with it *and* do mad styling without some flaking -- experiment a lot in advance. The hair paint works better the lighter your hair is to begin with (it takes less coats), so it may not be all that effective if your hair is really dark (e.g. if your hair is jet black, you may not be able to get much better than a silvery color).

It would wash off. Ben nye does stuff for thetrics and if you wanted to have a new hair color for the sake of your art, you would have just gotten it dyed. XD

Ice hairspray. Its amazing. Does many many wonders. Used it on both mah Selphie and Ayane wig. Got it at the salon.
