I have been #blessed, you see, for I am able to attend a reputable private university. However, this university is able to enforce a fairly strict standard of "dress and grooming" including regulations on the length of one's pant hem and neckline. While I do struggle with the desire to wear mid thigh length shorts for the few weeks in a school year in which they sound desirable, the facet of these "Dress and Grooming Standards" which is hardest for me to comply falls in the realm of hair color.
You see, the trendy mermaid/unicorn/rainbow-puke hair is vaguely outlawed for students who wish to be able to do things such as take tests or receive many other services with the statement: "Hairstyles should be clean and neat, avoiding extremes in styles or colors".
