I don’t know if anyone has already read this but a man was given a jail sentence recently for cutting off his girlfriend’s ponytail (after a row, I assume, not just as a joke). She had taken him to court and the judge had laughed at her, so she appealed and the Court of Appeal ruled that it was actual bodily harm as “a person’s hair is their crowning achievement”. Which shows for a start that the Court of Appeal are a bunch of pretentious no-marks.
This throws up two questions:
(1) Is it that bad to cut someone’s hair off? I know it takes girls longer to grow back, but when I think of some of the other offences that come under the banner of ABH I am not convinced about this. Comments welcome. The longer your hair the more credibility you will have!
(2) Can I get my hairdresser locked up next time I get a dodgy haircut?
