The wearing of natural protective hairstyles like dreadlocks, braids and cornrows will be a thing of the past for female students in Anguilla.  However, locs, twists, afros, cornrows are permitted for boys.

The Ministry of Education has updated the Albena Lake Hodge Comprehensive School National Code of Discipline and Dress.  However, the hair colour should be one solid colour, your natural hair colour.

In Guyana and St Kitts and Nevis, female students were recently allowed to wear their hair in its natural state to celebrate International Women’s Day.
