So yea I have two overly old fashioned parents. Like most great metal/rock stars, I want to grow my hair out, but yea that's "not appropriate". They've never let me get past a pre-mullet type thing. Any ideas on how to get them to let me grow my freakin' hair out?

Shave your head, wear a tracksuit, drink White Lightning and hang around outside kebab shops spitting at small children. They'll soon realise that short hair ain't always so good neither.

Just let it grow! wear a beanie in the meantime...that's what i've been doing since like september. How old are u anyway? 12?

Basically crappy meat. Usually consumed after too many alcoholic beverages.
#16
Uhh...Yea. They've done something close to that before actually. Basically threatened to sell my guitar and shave my head if I didn't go...And yea I'm such a ****in' good little boy that I went ahead and got a haircut. It's pretty shaggy right now but I'm talkin' 80's James Hetfield long or Dave Mustaine long.
#18
And who said I was associating image with music? Metallica still kicked ass after they cut their hair, but let's be honest most good metal stars have long hair. And it looks cool.

You said you wanted to grow your hair like many great rockstars before you, thus trying to imitate them through long hair.

my parents shaved my head when i got in trouble.....tell them that as long as you dont get in any trouble you should be able to have it as long as you want then everyone will know your a good kid and and even if u look like a "bad kid" it wont matter......but ya, hair doesnt make music better? and guys with hair past their shoulders tend to be faggots unless theyre rockstars....but still a lot of rockstars today have somewhat short hair.
#25
my mom always says something like "it makes u look trashy" or something along those lines

My mom goes with...It makes you look like a pothead. And you know frankly I don't care, it looks good. And yea exaclty I don't like many rockstars today...Not heavy enough, or too much random screaming without enough poetic lyrical sense. Metallica is awesome in both those respects (and they all had long hair when they kicked the most ass [Kill em' all to Black Album] so yea, I guess you can say I'm "imitating them"...But I don't really see it like that.

^ BOOBIES IN A ROW!!!!!!!

Anyway, just cut it, you don't need to have long hair to be awesome, I mean look at Slash, he had a killer top hat, Eric Clapton had funny glasses, Hendrix dressed like a hippie, the list is endless.

Slash had long black curly hair, Slash is my fave. guitarist ever though. But yea the Jesus thing would get me ass-raped...We're a very Christian family (I bet you could tell by my cussing and occasional sexual references though huh...?).
#31
Jus wear a hat. All I do.

Wearing a hat or a beanie makes ur hair look shorter than it really is, then once u take it off, bam, long hair.

I was kinda pissed that im forced to get hair cuts too, so i talked to my dad bout it.

Jus act VERY upset, and say that hair shows ur true character, and if u dont have ur hair how you want it, it gives off a false image on people.

Well try n make it not as faggy as i just did.

I've tried the fake image thing. It seems like my parents encourage fake imagery. Like yea my hair is just shaggy and I have the longest hair in my grade. Welcome to Canyon, Texas. It's pitiful, everyone else that plays guitar here sucks as well...Unless you consider being able to play smoke on the water on one string guitar-god worthy...****in' preps. Everywhere.

Tell them your ears are cold... XD

Meh, just "get sick" everytime you're scheduled to get your hair cut. Wear hats as often as possible so your parents can't keep track of the length.
