This young man, who apparently has the other half of his hair on layaway, was sent home from school for, um, having a bad haircut.
Although the Staten Island middle school has no policy about haircuts and even allows mohawks, 14-year-old Dennis Reynolds claims an assistant principal removed him from his first-period math class and told him to go home — a claim that a school spokesperson now calls a “misunderstanding.”
And why such a lovely style?
“I didn’t want to go completely bald,” he said simply.
Also, because he’s a teenager.
Thank goodness my school didn’t kick out students for stupid haircuts — my parents would’ve been forced to home-school me. I remember sporting a particularly awesome asymmetrical bob that made the right side of my head weigh a good five pounds more than my left. I have a crick in my neck to this day. But, MAN, was I cool!
