Better lose that attitude, hair style, and Ed Hardy shirt if you want to get in certain nightclubs in the U.S. and Australia.
In Sydney, Australia, nightclubs are turning away people with certain hairstyles or bad attitudes. If you happen upon the Darling Harbour's Home nightclub and Pontoon Bar, look for posters outside that warn of a "no attitude" policy. The club also prohibits the wearing of "rat's tails" and "step haircuts."
"Everyone's welcome, but if you come to the door and you've got a bad attitude, you're not allowed in," nightclub promoter Milos Rsovac told The Sunday Telegraph.
His reason? To stop violence that apparently came with the attitudes and hair styles.
"And we find that those with bad attitudes tend to have those types of haircuts," he said. "Our major concern is about the patrons. If you want them to come back every week, you've got to make them feel safe."
Police say the real culprit behind nightclub violence is alcohol, not hairdos.
"If tackling alcohol-related violence was as simple as banning people with bad haircuts, I'm sure it would be happening in more nightclubs," Police Association president Scott Weber said. "Unfortunately, it isn't someone's hairstyle, but more often alcohol that causes people to become aggressive and get into fights."
In New Orleans, a dress code aimed at prohibiting styles worn on the TV show "The Jersey Shore" has been enforced at nightclub Republic, according to a story posted earlier this year on ClubPlanet.com. The club posted a warning sign on its door that read: "If it's on 'The Jersey Shore' it's not coming through our doors."
The notice listed specific brands it no longer allowed: Affliction, Ed Hardy and Christian Audigier, reported the ClubPlanet.com.
