suppressing certain simplifications


How can I prevent h*h*h being "simplified" to h^3?  
Furthermore, how can I amend the Power[...] function to 
behave in the following manner:   
h^5 transforms into h*h*h*h*h

More specifically, how can I get (h*g)^2 to be displayed as:
(h*g)*(h*g).

I'm playing with simple group theory where sometimes hg=gh 
and other times hg=gh^(-1).
