Do you think red hair dye falls under "inappropriate" hair for school? What do you think would be a good policy for hair?

Here's the article that inspired this. And yes they need to be more SPECIFIC!!!! It's all about semantics and if you're not clear then people will not be clear. Handbooks and dress codes can be VERY confusing.

I know when I first started my daughter at her new school (they wear uniforms) the handbook was practically greek to me. I really didn't get a lot and always had to ask. So yeah, clarity is of the utmost importance.

exactly! ours says,no colors not found in nature. if I really wanted to test that theory i bet almost all colors are found in nature!

I'm a natural ginger and I find this offensive. Red is a natural shade. Why would it be against dress code?

I really dont care what color anyones hair is.That dresscode was not specific at all! I think ours says "no hair colors not naturally found in nature", but i dont think they enforce it often. The dress code is very specific in my county. My sons school wears uniforms, so thats pretty easy. When my daughter was in hs though it was very specific on how much above the knee shorts/dresses/skirts could be.

I am of the opinion that our society is sooooooo concerned with the surface, that we keep missing the point of our lives on this planet.

We are actually here to understand that WE ARE NOT SEPARATE from one another and that being content to be a beautiful piece of the lighted purpose of LOVE on this planet.

We are being ushered into the 5th dimension of time and space....there will be no more room for the "old thought patterns" of separateness and "surface" reality. Those who cling to these ways will simply be released when those energies are finally released.

A good policy for any school is that WE ARE ALL ONE and to focus on teeny tiny pieces of "bs" (yes bull sh**/Belief System) is to waste the time and energy of the teaching process.

This just cracks me up. Ok, I'm sure the reason they said that she couldn't dye her hair like that was because it would be too distracting. So...lets see. They take the girl out of all her classes disrupting her day. Then, all the other kids I'm sure are talking about how she got into trouble and disrupting classes even more from all the gossip. If they would have just let it go, sure kids are going to talk, but it would have been for a few min, then the day would have went on.

Me personally, if my kids want to dye their hair purple, I'd say have at it. I would much rather them express themselves by funky hair color or clothes instead of sneaking around and doing drugs! Kids need to have a sense of control over their own lives. Whats red or purple hair going to hurt?

i don't see what the big deal is about hair color or style. your hair is the only part of your body that you can change dramatically instantly with no consequences because it's just hair, it grows back, and it's nothing you have to "recover" from like surgery or losing a lot of weight fast. let kids dye their hair as much as they want and whatever color they want. school handbooks dictating how kids can style their hair are bull.
