A high school student in Texas was sent home from school on Thursday for his “inappropriate” haircut that featured a portrait of Texas A&M star quarterback Johnny Manziel, ESPN’s Bill Speros reports. According to Speros, 17-year-old Christian Chavez of Kerrville, Tex., responded to a Facebook offer from “Rob the Original,” a San Antonio barber who is known for creating unique haircuts. Rob was offering to cut a portrait of Manziel into someone’s hair for free, so Chavez took him up on it. The teenager headed to the shop to have his hair done, and was sporting the style by the end of the day Wednesday. Unfortunately for Chavez, officials at his high school weren’t as enthusiastic about the ‘do. Chavez was sent home from school by the principal and told not to return until the Manziel portrait was removed from his head. He says he was told the haircut “was inappropriate for school policy.” Chavez seems disappointed because he says he loves the haircut. Before transferring to Hill Country High School in Kerrville, he played JV football at Tivy High School, where Manziel played. He says his older brother played with Manziel. He’s planning to keep it a few more days before getting it removed.. “Might as well keep it keep it tomorrow (Friday) and get it cut either Sunday or Monday. I thought I would be fine,” he said. “I was surprised. My mom came and got me. She didn’t like the fact they told me to go home.” If this story sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve encountered this situation many times in the past. A San Antonio middle school student was sent home from school in May for his Matt Bonner haircut that paid tribute to the Spurs forward. In 2009, a middle school student in Houston was sent home from school for sporting a Houston Rockets logo in his head, similar to Ron Artest’s former hairstyle. Below is a video of Rob the Original working on the Johnny Manziel haircut: You can Rob the Original’s website to see more of his impressive work.
