Western United fans in the west were given free haircuts if they had a W engraved on their hair or spray painted it green at a hairdresser in Caroline Springs on Thursday.

The initiative came about ahead of United’s big clash against Melbourne Victory in the second leg of their semi-final on Saturday night.

United lost their first leg game on Tuesday 1-0 and will need to win to get through to the A-League Grand Final.

Their match on Saturday will begin at 5:15pm at AAMI Park.
