A Changhua County man yesterday welcomed the Year of Pig with a new haircut featuring two characters from the British cartoon series Peppa Pig, Peppa and Baby George.

Barber Chen Hsiang-hao (陳祥豪), 38, said that in the past few years he had been creating hair portraits for his clients, ranging from Bruce Lee (李小龍) and Mickey Mouse to characters from the Japanese comic One Piece.

The man who wanted Peppa and George, who wished only to be identified by his surname Cheng (鄭), was a repeat customer, Chen said.

Last year, Cheng’s haircut featured a pineapple design, since pineapples are a symbol of prosperity to Taiwanese, along with the Chinese character wan (旺, prosper), Chen said.
