Thailand's old hairstyle rules take a cut

Old-school regulation on how students cut their hair dropped after human-rights body challenged it.

    For most people, how you wear your hair is part of your personal style and expression. But that is not the case in some of Thailand's schools.

    Thai school regulations on haircuts have become a contentious issue, forcing the country's commission on human rights to force a change in the rules.
