I Was Bullied Because of My Hair

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 90 People

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
