Sharpie Used to Color-In Student's Shaved Hairline

An East Texas boy says administrators used a permanent marker to color in a line shaved into his hair in order to comply with the school's dress code.

Sheldon Williams, who attends Marshall Junior High School, said he's had the same hair style for a long time and never had problems.

KSLA-TV reports the student handbook bans designs shaved into the hair.

Williams said he was told that he could only have one part in his hair, not two. Relatives of Williams said they should have been contacted before anything was done to the child's hair Monday.

School administrators said Tuesday they regret not calling the boy's parents and will come up with a different way to deal with hair designs.

Marshall is 140 miles east of Dallas.
