Marcella Marino really loved Lady Gaga’s bow hairstyle, so her sweet dad took her to a hair salon and had her hair done up. But officials at Marcella’s school said the bow-tie look violated school policy. According to a note sent to parents, girls were not permitted to wear “braids or beads” in their hair, and requested that girls ribbons or bows be “made of dark colors, maroon/navy blue/black.”
So … maybe Marcella’s bow would have worked had she had dark hair? Marcella, keep in mind, is four. I’m not entirely sure why it’s necessary to instill such a strict beauty code on such young girls. It’s not like she chose to follow some of Gaga’s other fashion trends, like say, her meat dress, or radical platform heels, after all. It’s a hair bow, people.
Because of an unrelated incident, school pictures were rescheduled for another day, but Marcella’s dad snapped a bunch of pics of the cute hairstyle and posted them to Twitter instead. And now Marcella’s received way more attention for her supposedly “banned” hairstyle than she ever would have had the school not made such a silly fuss in the first place. [Shine]
