Maui will have to find a way to make the cut with the hair of a car, as the state’s hair cutting ban is being relaxed.
The new law takes effect July 1.
Previously, anyone cutting hair in public was subject to a $500 fine, a two-hour ban on driving and a 30-day jail term.
Under the new rules, haircuts are allowed on private property, at public parks and in designated carpool lanes.
“I don’t know if I would go into a public parking lot with a long hair cut, but I can go into the carpool lane, and I can do that with a little more security,” said Kim Davis, a 30, who lives in the Maui suburb of Kalakaua.
“But I will definitely go into an area that has a carpool or a car wash.”
Davis said she had been considering the cut for years, but the new law made it more practical.
“People used to have to do it in public because you had to be at least 5 feet, 6 inches tall to do this,” she said.
Davis said the cut has been an adjustment. “
My mom was very nervous because she doesn’t have a long-haired haircut and it’s a little awkward for her.”
Davis said the cut has been an adjustment.
“When I first went in for the cut, I felt really nervous,” she told Hawaii News Now.
“And then I realized that I’m really into my roots.
And it’s just really beautiful.
I’m not trying to be fancy or anything like that, but just my own little cut.””
This is a new day,” Davis added.
“There’s a lot of change happening here in Hawaii.
We are living in the most technologically advanced country in the world, and we’re trying to keep up with the times.”
Davis has been a Maui resident since 2010, when she moved to the island from the U.S. as a graduate student.
Davis said the haircut will be a “very natural, easy-going, relaxing” cut.
“This will be the cut that I’ve always wanted to do,” she added.
Davis said she has a boyfriend who works in Hawaii, and she plans to do the cut at home.
“He’ll be very happy that I am doing this,” Davis said.
She said she also plans to share her cut with her boyfriend and family members who might be able to appreciate it.
“It’s going to be a very easy haircut, and it’ll be really relaxing.”
