Today, I let my daughter dye her hair pink. I got an email from her school stating that the hair color violated the school dress code as it's “distracting,” and she will not be allowed to attend classes until she changes it. We do school over Zoom. Not sure how her hair distracts on a screen. FML

Could probably get around this by either having her wear a hat, tying back her hair, or using a program that will change the way the color appears to other people seeing it.

People will complain about anything given the chance. I had my hair dyed bright pink for almost a year and people complained about it all the time, granted most of them were based on the fact that I am a twenty-something male. Also, your daughters hair has to be the least distracting thing going on. I know friends whose kids are playing video games or watching tv at the same time.

Last I check hair dye doesn't damage brain cells.
I as a person who has colored my hair many times enjoyed a decent military career, became a union carpenter and recently took up driving semi.
At no point did I take up stripping and my parents are not my friends.
I also have tattoos which I bet are also against your views. So you can take those stupid stereotypes of yours and shove em.

Use a virtual background and check the box saying you have a green screen. Set the "green" color to your daughter's color. To continue the freak out, have her wear a shirt nearly the color of her hair.

A floating face should be acceptable to the school.
