Changing his hair “for the fun of it”

mohawk hair dye multicolor

Minneapolis style chronicles: Jimmy, 17, a student at Minnesota Transitions Charter School, likes changing up his hair style every few weeks. His girlfriend dyed his hair for the mohawk-ish style he’s sporting now.

Whenever he’s considering a new hairstyle, Jimmy will ask his girlfriend for advice.

Next, Jimmy wants to try dying his hair partly red–or maybe white. He hasn’t decided yet.

He says he does these things “for the fun of it.” He thinks it’s good to experience new things.

Jimmy told me that people compliment him for his hair experiments, but he also gets “are you crazy?” reactions. He doesn’t pay any of this much mind.

“It doesn’t matter how you look like,” says Jimmy. “You’re still a human person. Just be yourself.”
