I was pretty pleased, I went to walmart a few weeks ago and wore my dreadfalls for the first time, and a whole mob of people were ooing and ahhing with the whole "is that your REAL HAIR?" "OMG I LOVE GREEN" :lol: it was nice for once, and I got some funny looks when I was like "no, this isn't my real hair, my real hair is a black and red mohawk" and everyone was like "whaa, how?" :lol: My semi-tipsy friend then went on about how "baseball's STUPID" for the rest of the night but thats a different story :roll:

We are called 'undercover' although the name may change in the future due to it being a VERY popular name, especially with female fronted cover bands :roll: doh

I've gotten alot of old people, nearly snarling at me, "WHY? Why would you do that to your hair?!"

I've gotten called "N***** wannabe" twice. "Freaky freak" by a 4 year old (haha). I've also had alot of positive feedback, such as teenage girls squeeling over my head and asking if my dreads were real, and how I dyed my hair so many different colors. Older woman at the public pool saying I have such 'neat' hair, and how their grand daughters would love it. and I just get alot of 'I like your hair''s, and 'Is it real?''s, and 'Where'd you get it done?''s. I could really care less about the negative comments, I feel good about my synth dreads (: If they don't like them, it's honestly not my issue.

Was at the mall today dressed very plain and boring, hair just in a ponytail and my sides havent been shaved in a while so you couldn't even tell. Two old guys looked at me and shook their heads in actual disgust and acted offended that I existed. Heard them muttering "unbelievable. What is wrong with people." Thought the same thing.

Ah, the old people.
Here, it seems like they're at extreme ends when it comes to looking 'different' or 'odd'. They're either snarling at you and condemning you as a whore of lucifer, or they're all happy with it and telling you to keep up the good work.

With the snarly old people I whip a certain something out of my bag (not a weapon, but I don't think it would be appropriate to mention it here. Its a sexual thing) and explain what it is, and ask them if they'd like to have a go, and OH the responses I get. Its actually quite hilarious, it shuts them up right away and they usually run, or jog off. (This works well with over excited cult people too)

The last time I had dreads in, which were my first ever woolies, I got a lot of grief, proper annoyed me as I was so happy to have them in, and most of this grief came from my boss! Who now says I can't wear dreads at all. Changing the god damn rules. Just annoys me, as if people give a damn what a bar maid looks like as long as I do my job, and I am very good at my job ffs!!
So much for people being nice about them in my last post in this thread.

just to ask, do u have a contract of employment? if u do have a look to see if there are any restrictions on hairstyle/image etc, you'll find so long as you havent signed to say that you agree to her stupidness then you can do what you like as long as it doesnt affect your work there if nothing she can do, i had similar prob where i used to work with my piercings and i got my manager in trouble as she was being unfair and bullying me over how i looked when me work was 100% right xxx

I do have some form of contract, I remember signing stuff about uniform but there was NOTHING about hair on it. He's just being a dick but the thing is I can't complain to anyone as the owners are the next people up from my manager and they will have the same opinion as him. Applied for another bar job, fingers crossed, plus I know they don't car about hair, their kitchen staff have real dreads!
I havn't signed anything since that first contract, he's just gone power mad lately.

Thats absolutely nauseating. People like THAT don't deserve to be parents.

I always let kids touch my hair if they want to (and if their parents don't drag them away) it makes them less afraid of new things and it makes their parents realise I'm not going to eat them.

Still better to be pink, male and effeminate than to be like those chavs :) The majority of my male friends are effeminate, which in my opinion is better. I do like my girly men :P

this! Plus that pink suits you better than it would suit most the girls I know, so ignore the haters and so on.


My hair is growing back relatively quickly, it's already an inch long which means I have already started doing strange things to it, including a right angle under cut (as much as an undercut can be in short hair) on one side. I did it to tie it in to some strange obscure make up for a night out.
Today when walking down the road with Belle and her bike, someone asked me if I'd had that tiny bit shaved off for an operation, my sheer look of disgust pretty much spoke for me.

That is awful! What makes those people think they have the right to ask that sort of thing? I wouldn't go up to someone with hair I didn't like and ask them why they had boring/normal hair. Also people that think you want to know their opinion on what you look like generally, I have taken to telling people to f*** off if they start insulting me, it seems like they think I won't say anything back and when I do they look pretty shocked and tell me there is no reason to be so rude. When they were rude to me to start with :x

I am a bit biased, but pink hair is AWESOME and it suits you very well!

I've realized lately that I can't go out without people asking about my hair, even if I'm not wearing dreads. I went to pay my Best Buy bill the other day, and a lady stopped me in the parking lot (she was in her car, I was walking) and was talking to me for 15 minutes about who to get hair THAT pink. At this point, my hair was 2 months faded. :lol:

I had an old lady tell me she wished she had my hair color. I talked to her for ages about it! I find when people are looking at you like they want to ask something, a simple smile usually makes them more at ease. It's awesome, but when I'm in a hurry it gets so annoying!! :lol:

Traditionally, pink was a mans colour. Pink was seen as a strong, bold colour = FOR MEN! Blue, on the other hand was dainty & delicate. I don't know where in history they switched, but yes. Pink was actually for men/boys and blue was for women/girls.


I was asked the other day where all my hair had gone (currently dreadless) & I just replied with "it's at home" :lol: The woman in the PO thought they were real.
