Yea, just have someone razor the whole thing at about 2-3 inches. To style it a hair straightener helps a TON, and it'll stick out by itself if you're lucky, and you can just use hairspray or molding wax/gel/whatever to get it to stay up like Ichigo's. I razor mine myself, lawl.
JUST MAKE SURE WHOEVER DOES IT USES A RAZOR. That's really the only necessity.
