hair today gone tomorrow


Yes all my kids were blondies at one point or another (naturally that is...) So here's the scoop:
Harrison is on the Muncie Central HS diving team. As a tradition all the swimmers and divers of male persuasion bleach their hair, then they shave their heads. I'm sure this little ritual was developed to instill team unity and all that, but isn't that what uniforms and stuff were for? Harrison told us of the bleaching just a day before it happened. We didn't know the time line, so when he came home bleached, it caught us off guard. We hadn't decided if it was officially a 'go' or not. But now the next step is the shaving of the heads.
I have one BIG issue with this...Elders should keep their hair trimmed above the collar and ears. Extreme or bulky styles are not acceptable. Now I know Harrison isn't a missionary yet, but these young priesthood holders are not supposed to do anything to themselves that would draw attention away from the Sacrament when they serve it on Sunday. I think these hairstyles are extreme and crosses the line, what do you think? (Just as a FYI, Harrison has chosen not to shave his head on his own accord.)

Well if it was a good dye job we could say something different. Hold on.

It's crazy how much Harrison has changed! That little baby is how I remeber him! Maybe if he shaved his head his brown hair will grow back fast? Unless they have to keep the shaved head thing up for a long time.

Isn't the bleach blonde extreme?! I don't know that shaving it would be any worse or attract anymore attention. :)

Divers don't have uniforms, unless you count their little swimsuits! :) Hair is their only other accessory. I was on swim team for a long time, and this must be a universal way of showing team unity, because our guys all did it. They justified the shaving of their heads by saying that it made them more streamlined in the water. Whatever! :)
