YABU it's only hair. As long as no one is forcing it on your DC it none of your concern.

Was it your child?

School once did that to mine for a musical show. They were most impressed with the two-foot-wide sphere of dandelion fluff they got as a result. I was rather less keen -- took days to get a comb through it!

I dont see why particularly. It was off her face, not causing her any problems seeing the blackboard etc? (do they still have blackboards?)

Not in 1964. No.

Is it 1964?

My first thought would be "inconvenient" rather than "inappropriate" - but if it doesn't prevent her learning, or cause a health & safety issue, then I don't see any problem with it.

The only hair things that I think schools ought to bother about are keeping long hair out of the way for cooking or metalwork classes.

Fine, as long as it's not so big that the children sitting behind her can't see grin

Depends whether it's hairsprayed to the extent that it's a fire hazard.

Sounds better than the 6yo with a full-on Mullet I looked after. 2 years ago.
