Marcella Marino’s father, cleverly named “Marcello”, styled his 4-year-old daughter’s updo with Lady Gaga precision for a school photo at her reception class. A pretty epic accomplishment for any father, he flawlessly worked her hair into a bow (which he has done more than once).
The fashion police school managed to uphold the dress code to an overzealous extent. The “code” (regarding hair) for the Holy Trinity Primary School requests that ribbons or bows are “made of dark colors, maroon/navy blue/black” and states strictly that “hair braids/beads may not be worn.”
The fact is, Christian/Catholic schools are a pain in the ass when it comes to this kind of bullsh*t. I know, because I went to a private Catholic school and I also had long hair back then. This was, of course, in the late 1980s. You know, when long hair wasn’t “cool” during the days of Mötley Crüe, Guns N’ Roses, and Poison.
