Official Event: It's all about the hair! Get the game inspired hair of your dreams!

What makes a good video game hero/heroine?  Is it the choices they make?  The enemies they defeat?  Or in the case of many games now a days is it the memorable hair that they have?  So we were curious if you could have any game character's hair, who's would it be?  Sorry in advance Kratos fans. 

Thanks to our friends @HeyPlayStation on Twitter, and their Trim-Me Tuesdays, as well as Great Clips, we have the opportunity to make your game inspired haircut come true!  

To enter is simple, just post a picture of the game character who's hair you'd like, as well as a picture of yourself (it can be from the back of your head, or with a mask, or just the top of your head; whatever you are most comfortable with). 

Who gets the hair of their dreams is then up to you, the PlayStation Community.  The community will vote on who they think most deserves the haircut vouchers...ahh democracy in action! 

The top ten most voted for haircuts/forum users will receive haircut vouchers courtesy of Great Clips.

If you win, we'd love to see your game inspired haircut!  Of course, you don't have to get a game character's haircut if you win a free Great Clips voucher... but where's the fun in that?

As far as the haircut I want, I'm actually not too far away from it xD  You can see where I got my style from.

Hmm... Was thinking about it actually.  Would be quite drastic from the black though, and that's my only problem.
