: : Curious... How long would you define as long hair? Very long hair? Extremely long hair? Looking forward to your opinions.
: When is your hair long? When people around you tell you that you need a haircut. (Parents, teachers, employers, relatives)
In high school they told us our hair had to be above the collar. To them, that was "long" hair. Any longer, they sent you home and wouldn't allow you back until you got a haircut. They also marked the days gone as "unexcused absences". One unexcused absence meant one day of detention. Too many of these and you got probation. Then suspension. Then expulsion.
By the way, 40 years later, they still have that rule on the books.
