Lady Gaga: Hair Meaning
Get "Hair" on MP3:Get MP3 from iTunes
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, woah
Whenever I'm dressed cool,
My parents put up a fight.
(Uh huh, uh huh)
And if I'm a hot shot,
Mom will cut my hair at night.
(Uh huh, uh huh)
And in the morning,
I'm short of my...

I think she might be describing her teenage days when she was rebellious. She says, "Whenever I'm dressed cool my parents put up a fight" Like when she did something bad or different her parents (or whatever else she ment) would punish her,or lecture her. "I scream mom and dad, why can't i be who i wanna be?" Her parents did not understand her for who she was and disapproved odd behavior. "I just wanna be myself and i want you to know, I am my hair!" She uses hair as a symbol of freedom and she should be able to do whatever she wants with it. So this song probably is sending the message to be who you are and be free and don't let anypne stop you.

I love that she uses hair to represent freedom in this song. When she says "I am my hair" she means I'm free just like my hair. When you think about it hair does offer us a unique freedom, we can style it, cut it, color it, put wigs on, add extensions, and do whatever we want with it to make our hair truly represent who we are. I love that this song captures the spirit of that freedom of being able to express who you are through your hair.

It is supposed to suggest having enough and wanting to be who she wants to be without being judged by her parents. I can compare to this song a lot.

The song hair sends the clear message on how Lady Gaga wants to be free, like her hair. It's quite genuine how she related "hair" to freedom. Hair is free. You can do whatever you want with it, you can color it, extend it, cut it, tie it, anything you want! It's free!
Our dear mother Monster wanted to be free, and wanted to be known for how she really is, and not change for anybody.

Any one who takes time knows this song is not about hair but about how free u will express yourself.
Hair is the metaphor for so many possibilities. And sometimes your parents don't understand that when they ask you to go change before you go out to see your friends, that they are asking you to change who you are, and they are taking away from you, right at the knees the one thing that makes you feel like you can survive at the high school party. Having this rebellious spirit. Well, we should all feel as free as our potential.

As most of us know, Hair defines who we are.
Lady Gaga is saying that her hair interprets her mood, personality, and who she is in general and she believes that HAIR is a perfect symbolism of FREEDOM.
Wanting to 'wear her hair' however she wants without being judged and to be free to be herself.
Hair explains who she is and she doesn't want anyone taking away the one thing she has... which is hair...
SHE IS HER HAIR... which means... her hair represents who she is or how she is feeling... a GREAT metaphor! :)

I think this song is all about her. Eventhough they critisize her, she just want to perform and entertain everyone! She just want to enjoy everything, and she doesn't care at all.

First I love this,song and I think she means how no one messes with her hair that's how she wants to be where,no one messes with her or that she wants to express herself through her hair.

It means that her hair is a window into who she really is. And few people except who she is like her "hair" is too crazy or different for them to except. and "if I'm hot shot mom will cut my hair at night" means that its a punishment... if she's too wild or does something shitty her mom will take away her freedom or her record label will or something along those lines.

People pick on her and she wants them to love her for who she is and her mom hates her hair.
