You can check out Pikminlink's hair:

She (pikminlink's a girl, but she looks like a boy when she dresses up like one) uses a blond wig, but the hair style should be possible to pull off naturally also.
It's hard to help you out without a better picture! But I think it's very important to grow your hair long in front of your ears, to get his characteristic locks of hair there.
Based on what I could see on the bad picture, it looks very good!

Her inbox here is pretty full from what I have heard. But when I plan to remake and add things to it, I use a wisp wig in 24. Most people would say 12 but that's more of what I saw in the in game design and models.

im definitely not interested in buying a wig, was just thinking that if people posted pictures of their wigs without the hat on that would be a good reference picture for cutting my hair

And here's another question about Link's hair: When you use a long, blonde wig, how can you wear it and still look like you're male? Is there a styling secret?

@eiriks: For MTAC and AWA last year, I cut my hair Link-style, and trust me, having walked around for six months with my hair like that, I can tell you that it's not a big deal if you get the back cut short enough. Most girls actually said it looks really sexy, but only when wearing the ears.
It's a proportional thing :/

Yeah, its a strange thing indeed, but I agree on that. It's just not the same without the ears. Why I find it insane when people think they can just use their hair for Link, his hair is very reliant on his hat and ears to look good. Without those it looks so off, and now you have to wait till it grows back. It's just easier with a wig.

@ DanyDanyella: Its the Scruffy Long color 24 from Cosworks, the wig store this site has. No idea if its in stock anymore. Check, and if its not there take another look in a few weeks. And keep an eye on the store news, they will post adds for restocks.

It looks like you were lucky to have straight hair for this purpose! I couldn't grow my 'sideburns' out like that (not facial sideburns, but the hair hanging down in front of the ears) - mine tends to stick out sideways because otherwise it gets shoved behind my ears.. yea...

That said, last time I 'tried to get a Link haircut' I .. haven't had a haircut since! 6 years later.. you know what human Inuyasha looks like? That's me now. XD

Yea, everyone loves wigs for cosplay but I think you look fine with you real hair, though I imagine you'll probably get tired of it eventually (plus, keeping the green hat on top of your REAL hair without the help of shoving pins through a wig is a pain in the butt). That thing will fall off. a lot. XD

Ahh.. yea.. another pointless ootlink post. Woot!

@B Rinku: If you're still looking for a wig I have one for sale that would probably work nicely. Please PM me if you're interested!
