Please read this message for further discussions on hair.
I would also recommend reading the Instructions to New Amritdhari Sikhs.
Anything you do in life is "alright." You are part of God's creation. But does it serve to elevate your consciousness so that you may experience your true, divine nature? The Guru has given us a path so that we may experience our true nature. Whether you are an Amritdhari Sikh or not, you can benefit from following the Guru's path. Although specific instructions are given to Amritdhari Sikhs, these same instructions will benefit those who have not taken Amrit. Life is a simple matter of cause and effect. Even if you have not taken Amrit and know nothing of Sikhism, cutting hair or engaging in premarital sex have consequences. Trying to circumvent the "restrictions" of an Amritdhari Sikh by cutting hair or having sex before taking Amrit does not circumvent the consequences that those actions bring.
The best thing to do if you have any problem or question in life is to meditate and to read the Guru's word. Guru Gobind Singh gave the instruction that the Siri Guru Granth Sahib would be the Guru for all time. "If you want to talk to me, read from my pages." So if you would like an answer from the Guru, read from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. The answer may not be direct, but meditate on it and the Guru will help you to understand.
