check the employee handbook. if there's nothing about piercings, you're good
Fair or not, if she's in an at-will state the employer can require anything and fire her for any reason not specifically covered in anti-discrimination laws. And it sounds like it's a small place if it's a "shack" like one of those summer snack/refreshment places. Unfortunately the asshat of a manager/owner can do whatever he sees fit, including changing the dress code after she's already started.
I would find the smallest stud you can, and put it in. I know a guy who just had his nose pierced and it looks like a speck of glitter. He works for a well known gas station chain. Or do not change it, and honestly? People can get over it. I agree with another commenter. Check the employee handbook. Usually if tattoos are allowed so are piercings.
