What a pain for you, iím not sure the length of your hair but I would suggest just damn the crown area and blow dry, as when the hair is wet it is much more flexible and can be dried into shape easily. You may find using a fabric covered hair clip the control the crown area hair overnight. ...More >
Itís a difficult one really as normally after a year hair is nearly ear length so should have enough weight to control it, if you do wear your hair short maybe ask your hairdresser to leave that area of hair as heavy as possible and use a gel based styling product when drying that area to help hold the hair in place.
I do hope this is helpful?
