UK High School Bans Braids and Braid Extensions

A change.org petition has been set up to campaign against the uniform policy of Fulston Manor School in Kent, England. A young student was told to remove her braided extensions upon returning to school after the summer holidays.  The hairstyle was considered to be against the school’s uniform policy. The policy posted on the school’s website states: “All extremes of hairstyles are not permitted in school. Examples of the types of style considered inappropriate are dying in non-natural hair colours, contrasting colours, hair extensions, beading, braiding and cuts shorter than No. 2.”
