- The Principal is the final authority in matters pertaining to appearance.
Our appearance guidelines state: “Hair color is limited to that which is found naturally.” We recognize that some student’s hair has natural highlights that will cause the hair to be multicolored. We also know that some cultural styles exist that intermingle hair so that multi-colors also exist.
Natural hair color can be black, blond, brown, red, or white; all natural hair colors including grey, white and lightest blond, are considered shades of brown. If you or your student is thinking of doing something outside of this “natural color” definition – please ask first as it may not be allowed or may be an omission that is allowed.
