Hairstyles that are banned by our school

| September 2nd, 2010


Legend of Hairstyles banned by our school 

(MOP) School has just started! which reminded me of these tragic photos in our school bulletin board.  Reposted from my classmate’s space to share with you all, let’s together danteng the person who posted these, who in his last life was an angel with broken wings, every student must love him.

 (蛋疼 “danteng”: Chinese Internet slang, “danteng” was a saying form northern China, then was excessively used by the WOWERS on the Internet, also translated has “Ballache” in respect to “headache”. Originally “danteng” means the strange things people do because of being bored, or the state of boredom, like “so bored that I have a Ballache”.  Now  anything that is abnormal, illogical, makes no sense can be described as “danteng”.  “Danteng” can also be used as helpless or cannot be helped, for example after reading someone’s post you can say this person makes me “denteng”.  In general it also means shocking, crazy. stupefied…)



The hairstyle our school encourages:

Male student standard hairstyle: Not blocking the eyes in the front, not blocking the ears on the sides, not touching the collar at the back.

Female student standard hairstyle: Not passing eyebrows in the front, short hair do not pass the collar at the back, long hair do not drop on the shoulder.

    they pretty much got them all. Every one get a boll cut

  2. Hm… looks like a backlash to me – much like what happened with the mobo/moga style in Japan before WWII:

  3. dilladonuts says:

    they pretty much got the names spot on though lol

  4. GuoBao says:

    The longer I stay here the less I want my kids to grow up in China.

  5. dongshizhang says:

    cross eye style is the official danteng student haircut

    “Female student standard hairstyle: Not passing eyebrows in the front, short hair do not pass the collar at the back, long hair do not drop on the shoulder.”

    If the length can’t pass the collar at the back, how could it ever get to the acceptable long style length? I guess that’s what the summer holiday was for.

  7. h2o says:

    That’s hilarious, too much lulz. Got to give props to one who came up with these gems. xD

  8. LOLer says:

    cross eyes are home made nowadays

  9. Jc.yin says:

    Lol the descriptions are pretty hilarious but I gotta agree with the school, who wants the students to look like they’ve just come out of a japanese freak show and making the whole school look like a big congregation of “buddhist nun wannabes”, “Japanese pirates”, “nervous breakdowners” and “cross eyed” emos in uniform?

    I’d hate to attend such a school…

      Seems to work out fine in every other part of the world
      They just called it a Japanese haircut so people would naturally hate it

      In other Asian countries extremely ridiculous haircuts are banned in schools, but the ones here seem pretty mundane even if they look stupid

    Hair style – the school battle that never ends.

  11. Wang Er says:

    I have seen much worse though the “Younger kids” one makes me danteng most.

  12. AJ says:

    Hahah! These are great.

  13. h2o says:

    Japanese gangster pirate hairstyle = David Beckham mohawk

    Not manly style/Migraine style/“Sit behind a screen to receive ministerial reports; hold court from behind a screen” Sinister style/Home made “cross-eye” disfigure style = emo hairstyle

    Nervous breakdown style = Guido spikes

    “no blade of grass growing on it” shiny style = gangster bald

    The rest are from ancient Chinese swordfight action flicks, but wtf is “School abnormal style look”?????

  14. momo says:

    these are not hairdos. they are hairdon’ts.

  15. Krizd says:

    This is funny.

  16. Carl says:

    LOL, i love the name they give em. And what’s that last one.. “others”? What’s others? LMFAO

    Let’s just not have hairs..

    oh wait, that’s banned too..


    yeah.. 蛋疼

    A lot of of the critical stuff in the world happen to be accomplished by individuals who have kept on attempting when there seemed to be no hope at all
