We got a hairdresser to help us review Final Fantasy’s ridiculous hairstyles

There was a time, in the not so distant past, when talking about hair in relation to Final Fantasy was as passé as opening a wrestling review with something about sweaty men in tights. But the great wheel of time ever turns. Now we have TressFX and Aloy’s voluminous braids, and Final Fantasy is less about immaculately wafting locks and more about killing Chaos and extreme farming. That’s the only excuse needed to go back and look at 10 of the best haircuts in the series. And, for the sake of science and practicality, each ‘do has expert analysis from Jamie from Hacketts hairdressers (opens in new tab) in Bath.

Professional verdict: “Not a modern day hairstyle—I can’t imagine anyone would choose to get this. The length would require a lot of maintenance and brushing.”
