A 4-year-old Texas boy disciplined for having long hair has returned to his class with a brand new 'do.

Pre-kindergartner Taylor Pugh rejoined his classmates at his suburban Dallas elementary school on Tuesday.

Elizabeth Taylor says her son's hair is still long, but now she's styled it in a double French braid pinned up at the base of his neck. The school principal approved the style.

The boy typically wears his hair long and had been sequestered from classmates at Floyd Elementary School in Balch Springs since late November.

The long hair violates the school district's dress code. It says boys' hair must be kept out of the eyes and cannot extend below the bottom of earlobes or over the collar of a dress shirt.
