Of course if you move far enough away from your hometown. You make it sound easy. There are those who simply do not have the resources to move far form home. Having to attend a community college close to home because you can't afford to go away to college... just pointing out the person who said "you'll never see those people again", its not true for everyone. It would be better to say after high school nobody cares. But the teuth is appearance does matter especially in the working world. There are careers where you can flex your creativity but there are jobs where your hair is going to be required to be pulled back or shoved under a hat. From working around food to working in healthcare.
