Nobody understands the purpose of law anymore. Law is using violence to compel behavior. As such it should be very judiciously applied. There is a proper sphere for law, which involves preventing injury to other people. It is not about hair coloring or anything which appeals to some busybody.
Laws are enforced with the threat of violence. Refuse to obey them and men with guns will come for you. Resist and men with guns will kill you.
A government that creates and enforces frivolous laws is a despotism. And the worst form of despotism is one done for the benefit of the tyrannized, as C.S. Lewis so rightly pointed out.
Hair coloring or styling, or the acceptance of such, is not something that falls in under the scope of law.
The CROWN act does that. The acronym stands for "Create a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hairâ€ and
"The CROWN Act is a California law which prohibits discrimination based on hair style and hair texture by extending protection under the FEHA and the California Education Code.
So law is now involved in what are normal dress codes or standards. If a business says you can't have purple hair and work in a certain field the law will come in and force the business to accept that anyway.
We are not being done in by a quick chop which removes our head, but rather we are dying from a thousand papercuts. Every such law steals our liberty. And there are those who cheer enthusiastically when liberty is lost because they think it gives them something they want.
Be careful what you wish for; you might just get it.
BTW What is it with dictators and crowns? We had the Coronavirus, which was used to establish draconian laws suppressing human rights. They seem obsessed with crowns.
Maybe it's time for theirs to roll?

But you're right; if you're in an "out-front" position in your corporation, you need to look the part in order to provide a good "look" for your organization. Sometimes things are not just "about you!"

I couldn't play pro sports. Not just that I can't do it, but I wouldn't look the part either. Is that somehow unfair I don't get the job?
