In Berlin, Germany, female traffic officers have won a battle against bad hair,
otherwise known as "hat head."
Under a new law, female traffic officers will have the option of working without
wearing uniform caps that the officers objected to because the hats ruined their
hairdos, Reuters reports.
"The women complained that the caps were hard to fasten and caused considerable
problems with their hairdos," says Heinz Buschkowsky, the mayor of the
Berlin district of Neukoelln. "We were sympathetic to their wish to get
rid of it."
Reuters notes that it is unclear whether the rule allowing female officers
to wear a baseball cap or no hat at all applies to men as well.
