Call Haircut

If you’re into anime movies or games, you’ve probably seen a lot of scenes with the hero (or heroine) sporting a “Close Call” haircut. A Close-call haircut is when the hero (or heroine) gets a haircut while in battle or on a chase scene. In either an anime sword fight or a gun battle, occasionally the bullet or sword gets a little bit too close to get comfort, so you’ll often see a Close-call haircut with some long cut strands of hair flying around to show how close the person came to actually getting hit. The hero can then quickly run up to their head and waggle their hair while doing a victory pose, showing how near he came to actually landing that hit.
