For Marcella's class photo day, her hairdresser father crafted a sweet bow made up of Marcella's long blonde hair. But before she could take her photo, the mean-spirited school officials pulled Marcella away, saying she was inappropriately dressed. Say what?
Apparently the school has a ban on all braids and hair accessories, and Marcella's cool coiff was in violation of that code. First of all, what kind of school bans braids? Second, it's a bow, not a braid. Third, is this girl not the most stylish little muffin you've ever seen? We're digging her striped shirt, structured blazer, and pièce-de-résistance hairstyle.
We don't understand why anyone would feel the need to crush Marcella's burgeoning sense of style with a restrictive, and frankly, completely ridiculous rule. How is her hair bow offensive or inappropriate? Does banning the bow somehow keep the other kids safe? We think she looks adorable and wish our dads had been that skilled with our strands. We'd definitely look back on our school photos with fonder memories if we had looked this chic. Plus, we're feeling more than a little bummed that the only photo little Marcella is going to have of her bow is this so-sad, near-tears shot. (The Daily Mail)
Should schools be allowed to ban certain hairstyles, or is this just another example of an administration gone mad with power?
