Hairdressers cannot have rings in EU - level 3, A12

Hairdressers cannot have rings in EU - level 3, A12

The European Union was a great idea. After centuries of wars, European countries can live and work together in one peaceful and cooperative block.

However, in recent years some people are not happy with the laws of the EU which come from Brussels. Some of the laws are absurd and people think that they are crazy. One of the latest laws is a new law for hairdressers.

If the law is passed, hairdressers won’t be able to wear high-heel shoes. They won’t be able to wear rings and watches, not even wedding rings. Hairdressers will have a limit on how many haircuts they can give a day.

British National Hairdressers’ Federation is shocked. They strongly disagree. However, it will be difficult to change the process and the law will apply to all 27 member states.
