美东时间7月12日,纽约州通过了一项纽约人权法案:禁止基于“历史上与种族相关的特征”的雇佣歧视,其中包括对于头发质地和特殊发型的保护条例,涵盖发型如“braids, locks, and twists”等。

近些年来,涉及“发型歧视”的案例时有发生。据美国赫芬顿邮报(Huffington Post)称:2013年,英国石油(British Petroleum Oil Co.)公司解雇了一名高管,只因为她的“Braided Hair And Ethnic Clothing”;2018年,美国阿拉巴马州一名女性起诉公司,因为该公司要求她“cut her dreadlocks”才能入职;2018年12月,新泽西州的一位非裔高中摔跤手“forced to cut dreadlocks”才能参加比赛。

将发型与种族关联起来,纽约州并非先例。在7月4日,加利福尼亚州州长就已签署了一项“皇冠法案”(CROWN Act),禁止工作场合和学校以发型为由歧视员工和学生。
