School dress-codes in America are already pretty ridiculous, but it seems like everyday there is a new ban that seems more unbelievable than the one before.
This time, two 15-year-old twin girls, Mya and Deanna Cook, were banned from prom and school activities for wearing braid extensions, BuzzFeed News reports.
Interim director of the school, Alexander Dan, argued that hair extensions symbol wealth, and that's not something the school encourages with their students...
"The specific prohibition on hair extensions, which are expensive and could serve as a differentiating factor between students from dissimilar socioeconomic backgrounds, is consistent with our desire to create such an educational environment, one that celebrates all that our students have in common and minimises material differences and distractions," he wrote.
A complaint was filed last Monday against the school, arguing that the rules are unfair towards students of colour.
"The hair policy in particular, while not specifically mentioning these prohibited classifications, advances a standard of appearance that is based on Caucasian, Christian, and Western norms," it reads.
Styles like "shaved lines or shaved sides, fades and afros" are banned, and are most commonly worn by black students.
Deanna even admitted that, "usually like when the white people... dye their hair or highlight it and stuff, they just kind of look it by. And they just pretend not to see it or act like it's natural or normal."
