If you saw how awful he looks every time I come back from the hairdresser, you'd understand. Even if I insist: "Don't cut the bangs too short, a quarter of an inch, tops." before I have a chance to stop the scissors, they are half way up his forehead. And I have tried different stylists, none of them seem to listen, it's as though they all had this idea of how a little boy should look, and their minds don't register that I actually want some hair left on his head. No, I don't want an outlandish haircut, I simply want a sensible haircut with a little style if at all possible. As to the question raised about bullies, he attends a school where everyone is very different from everyone else, lots of foreigners, many languages spoken, so if you're "bland", you're actually out of the norm for that school. In the meantime, I found a cute hairstyle and will take him to my stylist. She usually listens. It will be more expensive, but it's worth it at this point.
