Nothing is more nerve-wracking than going to school on O-level result day and collecting test scores.
But some of these students were clearly worried about something else – their dyed hair.
In a TikTok video uploaded Thursday (January 12), one Punggol secondary school student named Elysia Lau shows herself and other schoolmates first before heading to the school hall to collect results. I shared how I had to dye my hair black.
Some schools insist that students wear full uniforms, get a proper haircut and collect results, and warn that colored or dyed hair is not acceptable.
Armed with a flimsy plastic bag and a can of black hairspray, with blond highlights, Lau and her friends set up a makeshift salon in the middle of the school field.
While she sat on the grass, her friends wrapped a plastic bag around her neck to partially cover her uniform from hairspray stains.
Then they whipped up a can of black hairspray and started dyeing Lau’s hair black.
one can was not enough for 3 of us
“One can wasn’t enough for the three of us,” she admitted in the video’s caption.
In the comments, Lau also noted that supplies of black hairspray were out of stock “everywhere” and that the group struggled to purchase a second can.
Also, they weren’t the only ones who had trouble getting black hairspray.
Some netizens wondered why students had to darken their hair before the results were collected.
In response, some netizens explained that some schools do not allow these former students with dyed hair to sit with other cohorts or enter school halls. .
Despite this, some students didn’t care about the rules and went to school with their hair dyed.
Additionally, other students shared that the school didn’t stop students who dyed their hair from collecting O-level results.
