The first resolution to ban hair discrimination was based on the CROWN Act, a law prohibiting discrimination based on hair texture and race-based hairstyles, including braids, dreadlocks, twists and afros, that has passed in at least nine states. The CROWN Act also covers facial hair in many states.mlive.com
