Ichigo's Hair, Naturally

Hey guys.

I have natural orange/red hair and am considering cosplaying Ichigo sometime in the near future. I'm curious on how to get my hair cut so that I can style it up in his way. Currently my bangs are down to the middle of my eyes, the sides are below my ears and the rest is just a horribly long mess that I can't seem to style with anything.

I'm just curious on if there's any particular way to get it cut to begin with (is there a tutorial somewhere? Or is there some terminology I can take to a stylist so that she'll know what I'm talking about without showing her a picture of an animated character?). I know for styling I will probably have to get some gatsby if I can find it (if not, perhaps some styling glue). But I've always heard that your hair has to be cut correctly ("a good foundation") before you can do styling correctly.

That's where I struggle the most.

Any help would be fantastic.

Ichigo's hair is really all over the place, so I would ask the stylist for lots of razored layers. xD You could also search through the internet for pictures of men with similar hairstyles to show the stylist. :3 Lemme see if I can find anything real quick.

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.

Razor cutting it? I've actually never seen anyone ever do this.. I bet it'll be hard to find someone who can do it.

It shouldn't be. Go to a barber shop or a mid to high end salon and ask around.

Razoring hair is actually really popular nowadays, so I'd be surprised if a barber or stylist COULDN'T razor hair. xD

Yea, even cheap salons (places that do haircuts for $12) razor hair. They're just stingy about doing it because it takes longer than just using scissors, and they don't get more money for it. So you have to tell them directly "I want you to use a razor, not scissors." And if they try using scissors or don't want to, freaking leave. -__-
