Why Do Nigerian Adults See Having A "Nice Haircut" As Being Rascally? by Lastbender: 10:21am On Dec 28, 2016
Why do Nigerian adults most especially parents and all those "aproko" aunties and uncles see having a nice haircut as being irresponsible. I came back from school doning my fresh Christmas haircut feeling fresh and cute only for my pops to see me and react like he saw the ghost of Herbert Macaulay, there and then he told me that he and I cannot stay in the same compound if I don't lower the hair. For crying out loud is there any gold standard when it comes to male hair? I for one think the same way ladies make their hair with different styles to look good, so also should a guy be able to have a haircut that makes him look cute and goodlooking. I have noticed this a lot, even people who are not close to you or anything give you a disapproving look What's your say people?

it's not about the rules now, its about the mentality. n.b my pops is a very liberal man, not just when it comes to haircuts I guess

I don't see anything in Haircuts like the one you posted up there, But when I was in my teenage years before 18, My dad was the one paying for my haircut. He screams any time I cut anything close to that up there. when I clicked 18 I jejely stopped collecting nothing from him I just cut what I like ... that didn't stop him from screaming, but I really don't care when he does. My money my Haircut he could Cry me a River about it. undecided

To the Society, hair cut/style matters. But to the Creator, the Heart. Above all, don't underestimate the power behind Skin cut as you won't wear MOG to Solomon Dalung's office with you Bsc and Msc in thy hand seeking for a spot in Golden Eaglets.

Lies actually. The fathers of today rocked full-on afros in the 70's and 80's and they partied arguably more than our generation. It's hypocritical when they try to play the decency card. But I agree, some haircuts might make people pre-judge you negatively .

My own problem is my beards and there is this particular man who will never let me rest when he sees me. grin

He's a family friend and whenever he sees me he'll complain about my beards and ask if I've joined an Islamic group.

And funny enough these people had afros reaching the sky those days. It's funny sha! cheesy
