Barbados High School Bans Natural Hairstyle

“My daughter’s hair style was considered too flamboyant and unsettling for school. At assembly the students were told twist outs are not appropriate for school”.


An online petition in Barbados that has gotten over 500 signatures is protesting the school’s decision to outlaw the ‘twist-out’ hairstyle often worn by girls and women with natural hair.

The twist-out hairstyle is untwisted, un-combed hair.

The school has not commented publicly on the matter.
