Hairstyles are usually something that we love to experiment with, especially in our teens and 20’s. However, this one Chicago school singled out an African-American teenage girl for her natural hairstyle.
“People say they love my hair because it’s so diverse, curly and Afro-centric,” said 16-year-old Nicole Orr, a junior at Montverde Academy in Lake County.
She says a school administrator called and said her style wasn’t in line with dress code policy.
“She literally felt, ‘Wow, what’s wrong with my hair? The Caucasian girls are able to wear their natural hair straight. Why can’t I wear my natural hair the way that it grows?’” said her mom, Secily Wilson.
