School bars So. Utah teen for 'distracting' hair

School bars So. Utah teen for 'distracting' hair

HURRICANE A Hurricane Middle School student has been barred from returning to class until she dyes her hair back to a "natural" color, but the girl's mother says school administrators are the ones in the wrong.

School administrators have the right to determine whether a student's hair color is too extreme, according to Washington County School District policy, but the policy's wording is too vague to be helpful to parents, according to Amy MacKay, whose daughter, Rylee MacKay, was kicked out of school last week for having hair that "didn't fit on the spectrum of natural color."

Rylee, 15, had dyed her hair red on Feb. 2 the same shade she has been dying it since September, according to her mother.

"We talked to the hairdresser about the school rules and told her it had to stay in the natural color spectrum of red," MacKay said. "At the time, the color of hair Rylee wanted, the hairdresser and I both felt maybe it was too red, a little too bright, and we made her tone it down."

6. That's funny, but didn't the ex of Tom Cruise already do one with that title?

Easy enough to Google, but then I couldn't tell you how clever your response is
