    Dude, I hope your life's desire is to run your family farm. Your criminal record just minimized your possibilities. And, OK, I get it. Gotta have the hair to be cool with the boyz. That's fine until you actually need to support yourself and make a little cash. You've got to change your life, get an education, and get some new friends. When you're ready to start your life, it starts with cutting the hair.
