Dear 100 Hour Board,
I am a female BYU student and I want to shave my head. Do you think this is too extreme for the honor code, which says to "avoid extremes in styles or colors?" I would probably shave it after Winter semester so it would have a little time to grow out until Fall. Any other thoughts on women shaving their heads?
I think you could probably get away with it. Less and less people are super picky about that kind of thing. Also, if it does grow out by Fall, you'll have enough to qualify as a 'pixie cut' basically, which I *know* they can't get mad about.
You should be allowed to do whatever you want with your hair, that's what I think. The Honor Code has some sensible parts, but most of the grooming standards are absolute trash, and pretty intolerant too.
DO IT DO IT DO IT. (For what it's worth, I don't think they would have a problem with it.)
Dear To The Rescue,
I have known more than one female BYU students with shaved heads. One of those friends shaved her head because she had a purple mohawk she wanted to get rid of before fall semester. I say go for it.
Get it, get it, girl!
Dear Buzz Lightyear,
Like the other writers, I think you should do it. I would, however, recommend having some sort of explanation for why you did it so you can explain that it's not an extreme hair style. I doubt you'll be asked, but better safe than sorry.
