【蘋果日報】點解男人會梳斑馬線頭?

一代巨星張國榮說過:「每個人都會老,最重要是懂得 age gracefully。」

 

最近英國的威廉王子以全新髮型出席公開場合,坊間猜測剪佢呢個光頭要成2,000蚊港幣,有傳威廉王子立刻否認,並盡顯英式幽默的說了句:「I am very bemused that anyone thinks I have enough hair to justify that kind of money」。威廉這個光頭獲得全國一致好評,因為他示範了,如果一個男人要age gracefully,即是「老得精彩」的話,必要條件是參透如何bald gracefully,即是禿得精彩。

 

一個男人最驟忌唔係無頭髮,而係剩返少少頭髮。人不應該太著重外表,但也不得不學懂尊重自己的外表,因為尊重自己其實就是尊重別人。有些男人頭頂的頭髮越來越禿,禿到幾乎無,於是就決定留長側邊的頭髮,然後留到咁上下長度,狠狠的從左至右或右至左把頭髮撥到中間。這種「斑馬線頭」其實是掩耳盜鈴,或其實是比掩耳盜鈴更糟,因為往鏡裏照一照,你連自己也騙不了。

 

如果你認為我是在譏笑那些遇到脫髮問題的男人,我先為我的詞不達意道歉,但譏笑絕不是我的出發點。我想說的是,真正的型男無畏無懼,而且早着先機。誰是全世界最型的光頭佬?要投這一票,心中的第一人選是網壇名將阿加斯。他在其2010年的自傳《Open》便提及過,其實19歲的時候已經發現脫髮問題,那時候還經常戴head band來掩飾這個情況。僅僅25歲的他,首次剷掉長髮,並形容自己獲得了真正的自由。

 

禿頭只是個比喻,重點其實是阿加斯這句「自由」。一個人過份害怕「失去」,往往會失去更多,這是我這幾年累積得來的經驗,而我只是想透過禿頭這個比喻讓更多人明白這個道理。男人不願剪掉僅餘的煩惱絲,因為他們認為「有少少」總好過「冇晒」;似有若無的頭髮就好像若即若離的情人一樣,你不肯撇脫的跟她或他分開,因為你認為留著這個情人,這份感情總有重生的機會。可悲的真相是,在這個漫長的等待過程中,你就是因為那種「欲斷難斷」的感覺而失去更多。

 

阿加斯說,人生最寶貴的不是那些頭髮,而是時間;倘若我們花太多時間擔心那些根本不屬於我們的東西,我們付出的其實是自由,因為我們的一生將會困在一份「不安」當中。如果你能夠學懂放開,你不單為自己,也其實是為你身邊的人做了一件好事,因為當你放下心中的顧慮,他們也放下了心頭的大石。

 

話說回來,英國國民都在研究威廉王子的髮型到底是什麼名堂。說那是一個buzz cut,偏偏又buzz唔晒,所以專業的造型師都正在為這個皇室潮頭貼上一個恰當的寶號。有說威廉剷青後,最開心的其實是Kate,即是威廉太太,所以呼聲最高的名堂似乎是Kate’s Delight。

 

你嘗試問10位女生,她們較喜歡斑馬線頭還是光頭,我保證她們的答案都會是一致的。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
