Plenty of kids want to rep their favorite cartoon character or singer, and usually they’ll be lucky enough to sport a t-shirt of their idol on school picture day. But one mom let her daughter wear a Lady Gaga-inspired bow hairstyle for photos…which led to some trouble.
Like many little girls (and grown women), Marcella Marino loved Lady Gaga’s iconic bow hairstyle, and her mom was nice enough to take her to a salon to get the look on picture day. But school officials got upset when they saw the ‘do, saying it violated the photo dress code, which said that, “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.’” I suppose that wording does make it a bit hard to decide if literal hair bows would be appropriate.
Since school officials were in such a tizzy over Marcella’s style, they surely breathed a collective sigh of relief when picture day was rescheduled due to an unrelated incident. Nonetheless, the girl’s parents managed to snap some photos of her awesome style at home! [via The Frisky]
