Boy banned from school for Pogba-like hairstyle – A schoolboy in England has been banned from school for donning a hairstyle similar to that of Man Utd superstar Paul Pogba.
13-year old Benjamin Piper was banned from Gainsborough Academy in Lincolnshire for his hairstyle, with his mum very unhappy about it.
“So I checked the school’s website and nowhere does it say they can’t have patterns or lines – it just says no bright colours,” she said after revealing her husband had expressed doubts over the hairstyle.
“I thought I better take him into school to double check and I explained my husband’s concerns to the receptionist and asked if she thought it would be okay.

“She looked at him and said ‘probably not’. Then the teacher came down and before I even spoke, he said ‘we’re not having that’.
“I was shocked and angry. I tried to say it’s not his hair that learns, it’s him.”
“The teacher said Benjamin is not allowed to turn up on Monday unless he has had his hair shaved off.
“Otherwise he would have to spend the next few months in isolation, or find another school.
“I’m not going to send him in on Monday – I don’t know what I’m going to do.
“Benjamin’s really upset about it. He’s been looking forward to going back since two weeks into the summer holidays.”
