This hairstyle: A little British girl who fashioned her long blonde hair into a giant bow, like a mini-Lady Gaga, was banned from wearing the style in her elementary school class picture. The school handbook clearly states a no-ribbon rule, according to administrators. Do you see any ribbons here?

2012: The Year in Bans

December 18, 2012

Before the New Year has even begun, proposals to ban everything from assault weapons to vaccine ingredients are in the works for 2013. But as 2012 has proven, no ban goes down without a fight. This past year, everything from baby bottles and baggy pants, to buffet binges and bare bums have been subject to controversy. Online, in schools, and in courtrooms, new rules gave way to both progress and setback, both praise and outrage. If nothing else, a few bans just made us laugh. --Piper Weiss, Shine Staff
