Japanese student sues over school's order to dye hair black

A Japanese teenager in Habikino city is suing the Osaka government after claiming she was repeatedly forced to dye her naturally-brown hair black following an unfair school policy Japanese student sues over school's order to dye hair black

A Japanese teenager is suing a local government over claims that teachers forced the student to dye her naturally brown hair black, an official said today.

The prefectural government, which runs Kaifukan High School in Habikino, requested the Osaka District Court dismiss the teenager's lawsuit at the first hearing on Friday.

The 18-year-old schoolgirl alleges she was threatened with being banned from attending school if she did not comply, local media reported.

The school's instruction to the girl to dye her hair was reportedly despite her mother telling the school that she was born with brownish hair.

Even though the student said she had suffered rash and scalp pain from repeatedly dying her hair, the teachers still said her hair was not black enough and required her to dye again or leave the school, said the petition. Ninety of the 170 schools surveyed by the Asahi newspaper said they asked students to provide photographs of themselves taken when they were infants or attending junior school to prove they had not coloured their hair.

In Japan, where conformity is the cultural norm, many schools have strict rules about hair colour, accessories, make-up and uniforms, including the length of skirts for girls.

This year a survey of high schools in Tokyo found that nearly 60% asked students with lighter hair for proof that it was naturally that colour.

The prefectural education board said rules regarding students' hair are set by each school and declined to comment on the case due to the ongoing lawsuit. He did not say whether dyeing brown hair black was a breach of that rule.
