Sent home from school for haircut

Recommended Posts

One of my favourite genre of news story is the "Child sent home from school for unacceptable haircut".  It's always fun to see a surly faced youth sitting at home in a school uniform pretending to be upset after being sent home from their bog standard comprehensive for breaching the unwritten rules about acceptable trimming.

A recent example from Eastwood - https://www.nottinghampost.com/news/local-news/mum-disgusted-school-putting-son-2006210

Disgusted mum!

Last year we found out that there was a haircut called "Meet Me At McDonalds" and that it had been banned, entirely justifiably IMO.

Apparently it looks like this, I can't help but think that the Jesus and Mary Chain are making a comeback

Perhaps more seriously, a school in Fulham attracted accusation of racism sending home a  boy for having dreadlocks.  The boys mother is a follower of the Rastafarian religion.

However, the greatest haircut exclusion story is clearly this kid who cut his hair to look like Sven Goran Eriksson during the 2002 World Cup.

During the last World Cup a journalist tracked down Sven boy, a Pulitzer surely awaits - https://www.indy100.com/article/sven-goran-eriksson-sven-boy-2018-world-cup-2002-twitter-viral-football-8402281

 

Have any P&Bers ever been sent home from school for having a nonsensical haircut?

Have any P&B teachers ever sent home a horrible little brat for having an idiotic haircut?

Anything to weed out these fuckboy haircuts early can only be a good thing. Sending this boy home for looking like a butcher's apprentice was for his own good imo.

Got a Bowie haircut around the Ziggy Stardust time. Thought it looked cool as f**k but everyone at school called me bog brush.

Aside from dabbling with a centre parting in the early 90s during my Stone Roses/Inspirals phase, I've had the same side shed all my days. Not very controversial I know.

My brother got excluded from school for having the Nike tick shaved into the back of his head. He was 11 years old. One of many things that helped me realise thay my family is not the classiest.

Do you think he misunderstood the phrase "Just do it"?

We were a two stripe type of family. Couldn't afford TV and that was the 90s. I suspect he learned about Nike from his mates and to his wee 11 year old brain they were the epitome of "the good life". So he went and got it shaved into the back of his head.

Cheaper than buying some Nike branded gear no doubt.

A guy in the year above me at school got a mohican style haircut and they threatened to suspend him. His parents were from Hong Kong and he claimed it was for cultural reasons (it wasn't) and the school backed down, some boy. 

In general I hate these stories, just fix your hair, follow the rules, get your standard grades and then you can be an attention seeking wee p***k all you want.

You can tell he's a little c**t because of his stupid face and the fact that his mother is the leader of Britain First. I'm with the school on this one.

He should just tell them it's early-onset male-pattern baldness.

He's a teenage boy. What was he using for hair gel?

I got threatened with being sent home early a couple of times when I was in about 5th year at school for having (fairly bog standard for the purposes of the thread tbh) facial hair. Which always used to confuse me because multiple staff members had very full beards or moustaches or the like including the deputy headmaster, so it always struck me as being a touch hypocritical. Most of the teachers didn't give a shit but there were one or two - and it was always just the same one or two that would pull me up - who seemed to take it as a personal insult if you rocked up in class with a wee goatee or the like.

Still don't fully understand why but would just have a shave on the rare occasions it got to that point rather than try to argue with any of the staff over it - was usually after an extended holiday period or something where I let it grow out a bit.
