Japanese Student Forced to Dye Her Hair Black Wins, and Loses, in Court


Like many schools in Japan, where most people are born with straight, black hair, the Kaifukan Senior High School in Osaka is fussy about students’ appearances. Perms and braided extensions are off limits, as are dyed and bleached hair.

One brown-haired Japanese-born student ran into trouble when school officials, believing that she had flouted the rules, checked her roots and repeatedly demanded that she dye it black. Though the student dyed her hair at first, she eventually stopped complying.

The school then removed her desk from the classroom, erased her name from school rosters and barred her from a school trip. In 2017, when the student was 18, she sued the Osaka Prefecture, which runs the school, alleging mental distress.

On Tuesday, the District Court of Osaka ordered the local government to pay her $3,100 in emotional damages. The student had originally sought $20,780 in damages.

But in a statement denounced by student advocates, the judge also ruled that the school’s enforcement of appearance-related regulations did not run afoul of the law, and that there were “reasonable grounds” to believe that the student had naturally black hair.

The case set off a national reckoning over invasive school rules and an outcry against regulations that left little room for student individuality. Activist groups started petitions demanding changes to rules that dictate the length of students’ hair, skirts and, in some cases, the color of their underwear.

Japan isn’t the only country in the region, however, to police hair color in young women. Last year, two women’s soccer teams at Chinese universities were barred from participating in a match because players had dyed hair, which was against the rules. When one player was judged not to have “black enough” hair, she was ordered to leave the game, forcing her team to forfeit the match.

Kayoko Oshima, a professor of policy at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan, said in a television interview on Tuesday that some school rules were necessary, but that in this case, “the hair guidance caused the girl to avoid going to school and took away a learning opportunity.” Professor Oshima added, “In this era, when there are global interactions with people who have different eyes and hair, is it reasonable for schools to ban dyed or permed hair? We have to reconsider.”

According to a plaintiff’s petition filed in 2017, the student’s mother told the school that her daughter had naturally brown hair. But teachers kept pressing the student to darken her hair. She applied black dye so often that she developed rashes and scalp pain before she stopped going to class in September 2016 because of the stress.

The Osaka government argued that a vice principal had inspected the student’s roots and had found them to be black, which the school interpreted as evidence that she had been coloring her hair.

The student, who has not been identified, could not be reached for comment. Neither could her lawyer, Yoshiyuki Hayashi, who said in a news conference on Tuesday that he would appeal the ruling. He said that the court had erred in determining that the student’s natural hair color was black.

In the court ruling, Judge Noriko Yokota criticized the Osaka high school for scrubbing the student’s name from school records, saying that “its actions lacked serious legitimacy.” But Judge Yokota rejected the student’s claim about her naturally brown hair, adding that the regulations on student appearance served a legitimate purpose and that it was reasonable for the school to provide “hair guidance” and to conduct inspections to make sure those rules were followed.

In the wake of the lawsuit, the scrutiny applied to Japanese school rules has led to modest changes in some schools since the case was filed.

As of 2018, 40 percent of public high schools in Osaka Prefecture have reworded rules explicitly banning brown or curly hair, replacing them with prohibitions on hair that was “intentionally” dyed or permed, Osaka’s education board said. And in 2019, Tokyo’s education authorities barred schools from instructing students with lighter hair to dye it black.

The principal of the Kaifukan Senior High School, Masahiko Takashi, said on Tuesday that rules for hair appearance remained the same at his school. He said he would try to explain its intentions to students and parents.

“When it comes to students with dyed hair, I have not changed the standards for students to change it back to black,” he said at a news conference. “But I want to take this lawsuit as a lesson and provide fine-tuned guidance for my students.”

Strand of hair could unlock the mystery of the Spy in the Bag


A single strand of hair could unlock the mystery of the death of a British spy whose body was found in a sports bag. 

Gareth Williams, a junior analyst at MI6 was found dead at home in Pimlico, London by police checking on his welfare on August 23, 2010 after he was not seen for days.

His body was found naked and decomposing in a padlocked red North Face bag in his bathtub. 

The key to the padlock was inside, underneath Williams’ body, while partial DNA from an unidentified person was also found on the 81cm by 48cm holdall.

A single strand of hair was also found on Williams’ hand but detectives said at the time that while they believed it belonged to another person, they could not extract a DNA profile.

But now Professor Angela Gallop, a leading forensic scientist who founded the laboratory which carried out the initial testing in the ‘Spy in the Bag’ case, says technical advances mean a DNA profile could be extracted from a tiny amount of hair. 

It comes after the detective who led the original inquiry said earlier this month that the case should be re-opened.

A single strand of hair could unlock the mystery of the death of a British spy whose body was found in a sports bag. Gareth Williams, a junior analyst at MI6 was found dead at home in Pimlico, London by police checking on his welfare on August 23, 2010 after he was not seen for days 

Williamson’s shocking and mysterious death rocked the Whitehall establishment and sparked questions about his private life and manner of his death – including whether he could have got into the bag himself or if a foreign state was involved.

The bag was padlocked from the outside, while the keys were inside it.  

Professor Gallop told The Sunday Times that the original investigators may have had ‘difficulty’ in extracting DNA from the single hair if it did not have a root attached to it.

But she added: ‘But there is another sort of profiling you can do. Nowadays you can get a result out of a tiny length of hair, down to just two millimetres.’

She said that while the new type of test cannot distinguish DNA from a person’s mother or their maternal relatives, it could be ‘useful’ if detectives wanted to compare someone specific with the extracted DNA.

Whilst Ros Hammond, who led the original scientific probe, told the inquest into Williams’ death that DNA found on the bag only offered up partial profiles, one of which would match half of the UK’s population. 

Police discovered Williams' body inside a padlocked red North Face sports bag in the bathtub. His duvet was pushed onto the floor, while £20,000 worth of women's clothes were in the spare bedroom. A lady's orange wig was draped over the chair in the living room

She added its usefulness was therefore ‘extremely limited’.

But Professor Gallop said: ‘We use a slightly different, updated set of techniques now — including DNA17, for example, and you never know what result you might get until you carry it out.’

Professor Gallop added she was ‘happy’ to help if the police were to have another look at the case.

Who was MI6 analyst Gareth Williams? 

Originally from Anglesey in North Wales, Gareth Williams, 31, worked for British intelligence. 

A former child genius, he had graduated from the University of Bangor with a first-class mathematics degree aged just 17.

He completed his PhD at Manchester University aged 20, and went on to Cambridge. 

But he dropped out after being offered a job at GCHQ, the Government’s secret communications and surveillance centre, where he worked as a computer systems expert for ten years.

‘But there is always something new you can do and 10 years is a long time,’ she said. 

But there is always something new you can do and 10 years is a long time.’

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said when asked last week about the possibility of of a review of the case: ‘The Metropolitan Police Service fully investigated the death of Gareth Williams, which was also subject to a coroner’s inquest.’        

The force has again been approached for comment by MailOnline.  

It comes after retired Met Detective Chief Superintendent Hamish Campbell said last week that he believes Mr Williams was involved in sexual activity before his death.

In an extraordinary intervention, the detective argued the answer to Williams’ death lay in his private life and led calls to reopen the 11-year-old case, 

Mr Williams’s family have long suggested foul play, with two police sources claiming some of Williams’ work was focussed on Russia – and one confirming reports he had helped the US’s National Security Agency trace international money-laundering routes used by organised crime groups including Moscow-based mafia cells.

Breaking his silence, however, Campbell – now working as the Assistant Commissioner for the Independent Commission of Investigations in Jamaica – explained why he had ruled out Russian involvement.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, he said the death was different from the hits on Russian defectors Alexander Litvinenko in London in 2006, and Sergei Skripal in Salisbury in 2018.   

‘What would have been achieved by killing a junior analyst?’ Campbell asked. 

‘He was a phone analyst, an expert in terms of mobile phones and the transference of data. What would the Russians or any other state have achieved by killing him?’

A single strand of hair was also found on Williams' hand but detectives said at the time that while they believed it belonged to another person, they could not extract a DNA profile

Police who ultimately discovered Williams’ body in 2010 found a bright orange female wig hanging off the corner of a chair in the living room and six boxes of unworn women’s designer clothing worth £20,000.

A semen stain on the bathroom floor suggested that Williams had been engaged in sexual activity shortly before his death – which casts further doubt on claims that Williams was the target of a state assassination. 

Campbell told the paper that police found no evidence that Williams had a girlfriend or a partner for whom he bought £20,000 worth of clothing, and also cast doubt that he had been gifted the clothes.

Instead, he believed they were his items and that he ‘wore or was to wear them’. 

Speaking about the semen stain, the former Met detective said: ‘I felt like it was improbable his body fluid could be present in a violent, non-consenting scenario. 

‘Considering Gareth’s tidiness and cleanliness, we surmised the semen was from the day of his entry into the bag. This would have been consensual activity. But was he alone or not? It would be difficult to imagine him having intimacy with a Russian hitman or a female spy.’ 

Instead, Campbell said the answer probably lay in his private life, citing evidence of Williams’ visits to bondage and fetish websites, as well as images of drag queens, heard at the inquest.

Detectives investigating the death also found that Williams had searched models in various forms of a ‘hogtie’, a bondage position, and that he had visited fetish clubs including a Jonny Woo drag act in East London days before his death. 

Campbell suggested this was a hidden part of Williams’ character that may explain why he got into the North Face bag, adding that if others had been involved they might have left in a panic.

He also revealed that he found no signs of struggle and no bruises or marks on Williams’ body – just tiny scratches inside the bag near his head, which believes were made by the keys inside the bag. 

‘It wouldn’t be the first time in homicide and sex games that the death has caused a panic,’ he told the Sunday Times. ‘Then there’s a cover-up to avoid responsibility or to avoid shame or embarrassment.’ 

The Met said in 2013 that Williams most likely died alone as a result of accidentally locking himself in the bag. 

However, this claim contrasted with the Westminster Coroner’s conclusion at his inquest in 2012, when Dr Fiona Wilcox ruled the death was ‘criminally mediated’ and said Williams was killed unlawfully by someone unknown.

Those who believe he was murdered point to the absence of fingerprints around the bathtub and the fact that the central heating was turned up to full, which caused the body to decompose quicker. 

Responding to these claims, Campbell said it was proven after the inquest that Williams could have locked himself in the North Face holdall after police got retired sergeant Jim Fetherstonhaugh to try.

The veteran discovered a technique that involved climbing into the bag, drawing up your legs to your body and drawing the two zip pulls together while leaving a gap for your hands to poke through and close the padlock – before tensing your body to allow the zip to seal itself.

According to Campbell, this was evidence that Williams getting into the bag himself, rather than zipped up by a third party, was a ‘realistic possibility’.

He also argued that the absence of fingerprints on the bath or bathroom tiles proved nothing – and suggested that there might not be fingerprints on the walls if there was running water.

He also pointed out that Williams might simply have liked having the heating up in his flat, adding that if more than one person was involved with him getting into the bag they might have left the light and heating on.

Sebastian Vettel hair line, reaction, receding, social media, Eddie Jordan, Ferrari, Aston Martin first look


It’s clear that the 2020 season for Sebastian Vettel took its toll but F1 fans have caught a glimpse of just how hard it was on the German star.

A four-time World Champion with Red Bull before joining Ferrari, Vettel’s Ferrari career largely coincided with Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes’ dominance.

Hamilton has won six of the last seven World Championships with his former Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg winning the other title.

While Vettel had been Hamilton’s chief competition for the best part of that run, he began to slip over the past two seasons as he finished fifth in 2019 and 13th in 2020, as Ferrari slipped from second to sixth in the constructors championship.

2020 was a disaster for the team and Vettel as he claimed just a single podium and seven points finishes in the 18 races.

But having moved to Aston Martin, who are the renamed Racing Point team from last season, the first look at Vettel has given fans a bit of a start with the 33-year-old sporting a rapidly receding hairline.

There was no way F1 fans were going to let such a massive change pass without comment.

Some said he likely had hair transplant surgery, while others said he was looking a bit like Prince William.

In fact, Prince William was trending in the UK but there were mainly pictures of Vettel.

So F1 fans had fun online.

Despite the tough finish to his time at Ferrari, Vettel has refused to blame the team.

The German star showed nothing but class as he left Ferrari despite it being a shockingly bad season.

Although he had some run ins with teammate Charles Leclerc, he sent a heartfelt message after the last race in Abu Dhabi.

“To Charles, you are the most talented driver I came across in 15 years of F1,” Vettel wrote.

“Don’t waste it. Whatever you do to be happy and smile. Thanks for everything.”

It is part of the reason why former Jordan boss Eddie Jordan believes that Vettel can help teammate Lance Stroll reach his potential, who the 72-year-old says is a World Championship.

“We were all maybe thinking ‘is that the right thing with Lance?’, and you’d have to say that Lance’s speed is undoubted now,” Jordan told The Race.

“You have to look at him as a driver that sometimes he doesn’t always show his speed as much as he should, or can do.

“He has enormous talent. And he has the speed to be a World Champion, he really, really does.

“But what I would like to see is more consistency. You go to a race and I’m not sure what I’m likely to see from Lance.

“I think Vettel coming can help them to do that. I think that Vettel may spur him on, just like Vettel spurred on Leclerc.

“And it could be that you might find a completely different driver in Lance Stroll this year.”

The Bachelor’s Chelsea Vaughn on Her & Matt James’ Hair Talk – E! Online


Chelsea Vaughn is reflecting on the meaningful conversation she and Matt James shared on the Monday, Jan. 25 episode of The Bachelor.

As fans may recall, the 29-year-old runway model used her one-on-one time during a group date to discuss the politics of Black hair and divulge why she decided to shave all of hers off. What followed was a poignant discussion, and at the end of the evening, Matt even gave Chelsea the group date rose. 

Bachelor Happy Hour hosts Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin were both moved by what they watched, and on Tuesday’s podcast, they made sure to ask Chelsea all about it.

“I just think that as women, and especially as Black women, so much of our self-worth is tied to our hair,” the New York native explained. “And I don’t know if a lot of people realize that or understand that, especially as far as Black women go, and it was just a really big deal to me, so that’s obviously something that I wanted to share with somebody who I am potentially going to end up with.”

Plus, as someone who grew up watching the show, Chelsea knows “there haven’t been that many Black contestants.”

The mother and daughter behind Darwin’s only African hair salon


When Christine Kute arrived in Darwin from Nairobi as a teenager, she noticed two things: the stifling heat, and the struggle to find a hairdresser willing to style her hair.

“Even just going to a hairdresser to get a haircut, they would be afraid to actually accept your booking because they were not experienced with our Afro hair texture,” she said.

The Kutes came to Darwin as refugees in 2004.

Their mother, Jean, was left widowed with six children after her husband was killed in an accident back home.

His death left the family with no income to continue the children’s education in Africa, and Jean made the move to Australia so her kids could finish school.

Christine Kute says her father’s death left her as “the father of the family” when she was 18 years old.

She felt the pressure to navigate the family’s new life in Australia — and to make it work.

“It was one of the most difficult times of my life because I felt like, ‘OK, he’s the one that’s supporting the family entirely on his own, there are six of us, Mum doesn’t speak English — how the hell are we going to survive this?'” she said.

It was in 2008, during the final year of her business degree at university in Darwin, that she came up with an idea to tap into a unique gap in the market: opening the Northern Territory’s only African hair salon.

Mum runs salon

Christine Kute’s mother, Jean, was given the job of running the salon.

A back injury meant she could no longer work in childcare, and the family relied on her hair braiding skills from Africa to bring money in.

As the customers began flowing through the doors, Jean Kute found her English language skills gradually improving too.

“By the time I opened the shop, it made it easy [because] people come, they speak, and I can get a little bit of English from them,” she said.

The salon offers services not offered at mainstream hair salons.

Hair extensions, wigs, braiding and cornrowing are all on offer, and there is often a waitlist to get in.

“It’s the same as putting on a different coloured hat every day,” Christine Kute said.

“If I want to, you know, wear long hair today I can, if I want to wear short hair tomorrow I can, and that’s the beauty of it.”

A business and a blessing

To the family, the salon is more than just a business.

It represents their journey to Australia and Jean’s courage to carry on as a single mother with six dependants in a foreign land.

Jean recalled telling herself: “I have to come [to Australia].”

Christine Kute calls the shop “a blessing” and says her mother is called “Mum” by many of the salon’s African clientele.

“There are people who haven’t been lucky to have their mums come here with them, and we are happy to share her with such people,” Ms Kute said.

“I think she’s a warrior … if she found it within herself to push on, what more challenges can I face that I can’t push on?

“If she could do it, why can’t I?”

Ghislaine Maxwell losing hair and weight from ‘punitive’ prison conditions, lawyer says | UK News


A lawyer for Ghislaine Maxwell has said her client has lost 15lbs (almost 7kg) in prison under “punitive” conditions part-imposed on her after Jeffrey Epstein killed himself last year.

Bobbi Sternheim made the claims on the British socialite’s behalf after the Metropolitan Detention Centre warden in Brooklyn defended the conditions.

The prison meanwhile maintains that Maxwell “remains in good health” and that her treatment follows by-the-book recommendations to protect all federal inmates.

Image:

The letters were issued on the same day that the 58-year-old’s lawyers said they were renewing her bail application – after compiling information that was not readily available when her initial request was rejected in July.

Lawyers Mark S Cohen and Christian Everdell said they have a “comprehensive bail package” that includes financial information and letters from close family and friends who have agreed to support Maxwell.

However this is on the basis that they remain anonymous, as they are “legitimately afraid” that they will face the same “relentless media scrutiny” experienced by Maxwell.

Her arrest in the summer came a year after Epstein was detained and charged with sex trafficking.

More from Ghislaine Maxwell

He killed himself in August 2019 at a federal jail in Manhattan where he was awaiting trial without bail.

Maxwell had since been in hiding and was discovered by FBI agents in July this year, after raiding a property in New Hampshire.

She was arrested on charges that she procured underage teenage girls for Epstein to abuse in the mid-1990s, but is pleading not guilty and prepares for trial next summer.

The one-time girlfriend of Epstein maintains her position of innocence, and that she never saw the financier engaging in – what she called in a 2016 deposition – “inappropriate underage activities”.

Ms Sternheim wrote in her letter that Maxwell was facing harsh treatment in part because the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) failed to prevent Epstein’s suicide in August 2019 as he awaited trial on sex trafficking chargers – and want to avoid history repeating itself.

The lawyer said: “It is obvious that Ms Maxwell is bearing the brunt of BOP incompetence.

“The Department of Justice is seeking to repair the BOP’s tarnished reputation by placing Ms Maxwell under extraordinarily harsh conditions, not in any response to Ms Maxwell’s requirements, but rather in response to the failed handling of a completely different inmate.”

Ms Sternheim said that her client has lost hair and over 15 pounds during her imprisonment.

The lawyer added that Maxwell had not been adequately protected from the outbreak of COVID-19, was subject to repeated unnecessary searches, has been awaken by flashlight-laden guards during the night, has had important legal emails deleted and has not always been given vegetarian food as requested.

Ms Sternheim said: “The conditions under which she is detained are punitive, unwarranted, deleteriously impacting her ability to prepare her defence, and interfering with counsel’s ability to provide the legal representation to which she, and any other detainee, deserves.”

Prison lawyers refute these claims – writing in a letter that Maxwell’s weight has not fluctuated more than two pounds from her current weight and that her dietary needs have also been addressed.

The other conditions are standard procedures to maintain “a safe and secure environment” for all inmates, the prison has said.

West Yorkshire hair salon owner fined £27,000 after breaking lockdown rules | UK News



The owner of a hairdresser has been issued with fines totalling £27,000 after staying open during the second lockdown.

Kirklees Council in West Yorkshire said Quinn Blakey Hairdressing in Oakenshaw was “selfish and irresponsible” for remaining open despite restrictions remaining in place.

The council said the hair salon had received a notice to close and a fixed penalty notice on 9 November as its first warning – and had subsequently been issued fines for every day it continued trading.

A spokeswoman said the business received a £1,000 fine on 9 November, a £2,000 fine on 12 November, a £4,000 fine on 21 November and two £10,000 fines on the 23rd and 24th of this month.

She added that the council was now “exploring alternative action”.

The owner of the salon posted on Instagram on the first day of the national restrictions, writing that despite the lockdown she still had bills to pay.

She wrote: “LOCKDOWN DAY 1. I earned this weeks rent today, not sure where I would be pulling that money from given the government want self employed business people to wait SIX WEEKS for a payment.

“I still have a mortgage, bills, childcare fees, food, car, insurance etc not to mention the overheads for the shop.

“If we give up now I can categorically guarantee your small businesses will not survive this lockdown – given it’s not going to be 4 weeks.

“Like I said before this is more than just having a business and an income, this is my children’s future and that’s more important to me than anything ❤️.”

Several videos and photos have been posted on the Instagram page showing the owner talking to police officers and members of the council through the shop’s locked door.

In one video, she says that she does “not consent” to being fined and that she is “standing under common law”.

Another post shows a video of a police car outside her salon, captioned: “Police stalking me now.”

Her latest caption – again in response to police parked outside her business – tells her 6,000-plus followers that “this is what your tax paying money goes towards”, adding: “Sitting outside my business whilst I’m LAWFULLY earning a living.”

In a statement, the council spokeswoman said local authorities understood how difficult it has been for businesses and that it would continue to support them during this “devastating period” – but added that no one was exempt from the COVID-19 guidance.

She said: “The law set by the government is there so we can bring infection rates down, ease pressure on our health services and save lives.

“But it only works if we all stick to it and realise that no one is above the law.

“Frankly, the actions taken by this business are selfish and irresponsible.

“We will not hesitate to take action on anyone who breaches the rules that are in place to keep us all safe.

“Repeated breaches of COVID-19 regulations result in ever-increasing fines up to £10,000 and eventually prosecution.”

The council said Kirklees has the fifth highest rate of infection in the UK, with 135 people admitted to hospital last week and 25 virus-related deaths.

Quinn Blakey Hairdressing has been contacted for comment.
