Last week, an 8th grader at Benton Junior High was sent home by school officials for sporting an unusual hair style.
Halle Stringer dyed the bottom few inches of her hair blue.
According to her grandmother Nancy Nichols, Halle said other girls were dying their hair red, and â€śHalle wanted to be just a little different.â€ť
â€śPersonally, I thought her hair looked nice. Different, but nice,â€ť Nichols said.
Stringer came to school on Tuesday with the new hair-do, but was pulled to the principals office around 5th period.
