UK's hair

(I'm going politically correct on his name here... lolol Since i personally hate it when he's called England, but i get odd looks calling him Britain... so yay PC)

So, my guy friend is cosplaying UK. He CAN'T wear a wig, so don't even suggest it. Not only does he have a large head, but wearing wigs makes his body overheat and he ends up sweating a lot, and... yeah. Wigs are 100% a no no no no no. Making that clear for everyone who loves to suggest getting a wig after I've made it clear thats not a choice XD;;

Anyways. He has blonde hair anyways, so he was going to get his hair cut like UK's. As right now, he doesn't quite... look right. http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-...5335 79_n.jpg

So he was gonna go to a hair stylist and have them do it. Except, showing a picture of an anime character is not only weird, but they might mess it up. So does anyone have pictures of real people with UK's wig on (well done, of course), or like... just people with that general hair style?

Preferably a bit longer than shorter on the length... as he usually has shoulder length hair, and going too short might make him flail XD;;

I'm trying to find some pictures myself, but i'm sorta failing miserably XD;;

Why yes! Yes, I do, if you concider these "well done." There was a day when I took my turn at being UK (I always read that as "uke."), despite the fact that I am normally a France. Here's a few shots from that. The wig likes to stick up in random spots at times, but it's okay otherwise. I know my bangs are long, but that might be what you want. Here's a bunch of different angles:

My group's UK, however, wears another take on his hair:

I hope some of that is useful. I've been in that situation before, showing a picture of an anime character to a stylist. I hope his haircut works out!
