Bleckley girl scolded for dyeing hair returns to school


UPDATE:
Bleckley County freshman Maegan Galloway is back at school Wednesday - and she's less blue.

She dyed her hair over the weekend and said an administrator told her she couldn't return to school until she returned her hair to a natural color because the bright blue was "distracting."

Her mother told 13WMAZ that principal Trey Belflower called Tuesday night saying Maegan could return to school and keep the blue just as long as it was toned down.

Her blue hair sparked a Twitter campaign with the hashtag #savetheblue which garnered a lot of support for the student - and her bright blue hair.

Maegan said she had no idea the Twitter campaign would blow up like it did.
