How often do you have a haircut ?

I am forced to have a hair cut every two months . In India , schools force students to have a clean and close hair and boys are not allowed to grow long hair and not even a millimeter meter more than 5cm . So I go to get a haircut done every 2 months . So what I feel is that educational institutions are poking their noses into the individual rights of a person . They can't force students to have a haircut . Hair is a part of a person's body and it is he who has to decide about it . And all this happens only in India . The school administration is doing all this in the name of keeping the school disciplined . And the girls are not forced to do anythings like that . In fact they are encouraged to grow long hair . But why this discrimination only towards boys ? So what do you have to say about this ? Does this happen in your school ? Please share your experience !

it is normally to enforce haircut in learning institution to entail discipline, military academy also do it for same reason, like you i also hate the school for dictating generic haircut as i see them stupendous. but i learn to obey as i found out that it is necessary to make us uniformly alike to avoid intimidation from each other's fashion, now that i am out of school (graduated) i see to it to cut my hair on regular basis as part of my grooming..usually 2x a month..as i don't look good on having long hair.

well when im in highschool once a month because it is mandatory to have a clean cut always. my highschool is strict. In college there is also a mandatory lenght for boys but usually less regulated unless your prof will say something like: "long hair = no test" there was a time when im in college that i havent cut my hair for months and a lot of the profs are noticing it so i have no choice but to cut it.

As you can probably tell from my avatar, my hair is pretty long. I tend to get it trimmed once every few months. The last time I got it cut was at the beginning of march and that was simply trimming up the back of it a little bit to clean it up. It wasn't a full trim.
