I have the same problem only mine is at the nape of my neck. I don't think cutting it will help, you just have to find a way to work around it, I 'm sorry . I have done everything possible to tame it, nothing works. I found the best thing was to leave it a little longer as it pulls up and looks shorter than it is. I would like to have it shorter but when it is cut short the cowlick hair sticks out and looks bad.
