    Curls!

    I've always had wild, curly hair. In the 90's having big hair was not that much of a problem, but late primary-early high school I started receiving comments such as "frizzball", "frizzbomb", "frizzhead", "hair bear bunch", "Don't you own straighteners??", "Get a haircut" - and...

    I was bullied for a lot of reasons,

    most I could never understand, but my hair seemed to be something that caught my old classmates eyes.When I was thirteen-fourteen, I dyed my hair for the first time. Actually, my then-best friend's Mum did. It was supposed to be blonde streaks throughout my natural brown hair...

    Dude

    I Used to get bullied alot because a long time ago at my school ,s short hair was popular , but my mother refused to allow me to cut it because of a cultural issue. They used to pull at my long hair and try and cut it when i wasn't looking.

    I was bullied yesterday

    because of my hair infront of a guy who likes me. I feel like committing suicide sometimes but I learn to get through life one day at a time because life is a everlasting rollercoaster.

    The Hair I Was Born With

    Not Quite Bullied...

    I used to be made fun of because of my hair. In high school, it started sticking up in two places at the back of my head, and nothing I could do would get it to stay lying flat. I gained the nickname "Wings" as a result. I don't know. It's a weird memory. I...

    In Middle School

    It didn't matter if I had weave, extensions, a good hair day, a bad hair day, regular hair, natural hair, whatever hair... The only time people didn't make comments about my hair is if I was wearing a hat or hoodie and of course at school that wasn't allowed. Now, I know I have...

    Ignorance Is Definitely Not Bliss.

    People can be so cruel sometimes. Not a day goes by that the idiots I'm forced to work with say some sh*t like ¨nice hair, gay boy,” or “rapunzel, rapunzel let down your hair!” It's a wonder I haven't gone crazy. having long hair (as a guy) can be more trouble than it's...

    Hairy Situations

    When I was little I had long hair. To my arse long. I grew up with my grandparents. My grandmother "loved" my hair and never let me get it cut. Thanks to her, my hair was part of why I was relentlessly bullied. No ***** from her could be given. My mum went behind her back and got...

    I was bullied in high school for being asexual. I was the odd one while everyone else was hooking up. It happens. I guess. But I hope no one else has to go through it.
