This can create freedom for many. Private schools need to chill out a little with hair policy. I’m aware for example many don’t allow boys to have ear length or shoulder length hair and in winter having longer hair is a great thing as it provides natural warmth and it’s like a natural beanie and more hair also gives slight cushioning for the head so why disadvantage the boys for wintertime? Yes and it’s lovely to let the beauty of human hair be expressed by each and every individual student.

For goodness, sake, it's only hair. Let students be free to wear their hair however they want. It doesn't hut anybody.
