New York City's Commission on Human Rights is set to ban discrimination based on hair style or texture in work or school and in public places. Guidelines issued by the commission say people have a right to "natural hair, treated or untreated hairstyles such as locs, cornrows, twists, braids, Bantu knots, fades, Afros, and/or the right to keep hair in an uncut or untrimmed state." The commission can issue fines of up to $250,000 on those found to have discriminated against someone based on their hair. There is no cap on the damages it can award.
