Ashley Davis

Following reports of a Baltimore woman fired from her job because of her blonde highlights, another black woman is facing discrimination because of the way she chooses to wear her hair.

Ashley Davis, a 24-year-old from St. Peters, Mo., said a change in her company's policy now requires her to cut off her dreadlocks.

“I've only been there for two months, and they came up with a policy. I feel like it's degrading,” she said.
