Short Hair Policy

Some teens feel that making impression is the priority in life, they go along with trendy hairstyle, fashionable clothes and shoes, they just wish to express themselves and their believe. Unfortunately, the school rules everything above. My teens’ hairstyle always irked me to no end, both have enrolled in different high school with short hair policy.

The schools’ rules are stricter than monk’s temple, to ensure that all hair length unify, spot check is carried out, the horror look hairdressers with comb & scissor appear to perform the immediate ‘rectification’ on the offenders, no free meal and each student shall be charged RM2 for the cut. The dancing scissor goes snip! Snip! Snip ! thus making those affected less pretty & handsome. The smirking smile from the discipline teacher shall bring tears to the students.

Unfortunately, my teen boy adores celebrity hairstyle, pushing the boundaries mimicking “Wu Chun” (picture attached), he takes good care of his hair, he style his hair when needed, assorted range of hair gel, spray, conditioner, mousses and a full line of hair care stuff are seen on his dressing table, to prepare for his look, longer hours are needed. He shall frequently pinching and styling his hair with fingers.

If he is unlucky, he can’t be spared for the cut, at times, I was invited to school to discuss on his trendy hairstyle.

Ironically, I have an obedient teen girl, she ensures that her hair length mustn’t touches her collar, she will get rid of the extra length no matter how, or even DIY. She is doing it beyond the set requirement and hair looks awfully short for a girl.

My girl uses the traditional toothed device called comb, and it makes thing simpler and easier, she is more economical minus all the hair care products and uses less shampoo for her hair length. She is care less on outlook, she doesn’t mind walking around with messy Albert Einstein look, she just smirks and fingers combs after we sounded her.

I always puzzled and confused with my teens’ behavior, they are of opposite characteristic, I have to neutralise them by asking boy to keep shorter hair and persuading my girl to extend that few millimetre length.

Hair is not the issue. It's the personality of one which we can see clearly under this situation. School is a place that reflects how a person will live his/her life in the society. Judging from the post, I say one is determine to live by the rules and the other one is out of the boundaries. It also shows that one is going to be a faithful follower who lives quietly without having to create much disturbance around and the other one is not afraid to show the world his talent and ability. At the end of the day it's just the question of surviving in the realistic world today.

Hmm... All part & parcel of growing up, I'd say.

I've been a teenager myself, & that time I thought it'd impress girls.

Imagine if u will, the wind blowing ur hair and u slick it back in one cool motion. Confirm to get the girls impressed. hahaha.....

This 'trend' will pass in time, rest assured mommychoo. ;)
