Seeing too much red, school threatened to ban student for dyed hair2/12/2013
Rylee MacKay dyes her hair. It's not pink or purple, it has no neon streaks, and it's not spiked, Skrillexed, Mohawked or otherwise distinguishable from that of any other teen. But administrators at Hurricane Middle School in Utah threatened to suspend Rylee until she dyed her back to her natural brown from the subtle shade of red she had been coloring it since September. The school relented Monday and let Rylee back in; the principal, Dr. Ron Hoyt, said Rylee had "complied" with the school's request by washing her hair several times so the color is sufficiently "toned down." She was barred under a vague district policy stating "hair color should be within the spectrum of color that grows naturally." [Source]
