But anyway, he would love to let his shaggy hair grow, but the school we have him at has hair code requirements of no longer than the middle of the ear, and can't be touching the collar of a collared shirt, no tees here. His last hair cut was in mid-August of 2012. He started this school year on August 20th without having his hair cut, he wanted to wait until actually getting cited for being out of code. OK, so Mom here was ok with this one small act of 'rebellion' - this is a GOOD kid, no rebellious attitudes at all at this stage of the game and he'll soon be 15. Finally, this past Tuesday, he was cited, so on Wednesday, we headed to the barber. Not a bad deal, one hair cut every 13 months!
Here's a couple of the before:
|Really isn't bad, ok at ear and border-line at collar. This pic taken on 8/20.|
|But here, right before we went in to get it cut, by the end of the day, it relaxes a little, and it gets really floppy and wild, and that was more a problem than the length. It was considered too unruly.|
|And the after. It was scissor-cut rather than clippers like last year, so not as evenly symmetrical, but it is clearly shorter and tamer. Nick would prefer to have his hair back, but complies with the rules for now.|
