  'Zoe hair' girls kept off school
Updated 07 February 2002, 07.10
Chloe and Faye with their 'distracting' hair
Two Pop Idol fans have been told not to go to school because their teachers don't like their "attention seeking" hairstyles.

Chloe and Faye, 15, love former contestant Zoe Birkett's long blonde woven extensions so much, they decided to get some too.

But it seems teachers at their school in Essex reckoned the girls' new hairdos were hair-don'ts for the classroom.

They thought they would distract their fellow classmates so decided they should be taught separately from everyone else.

So mums of the pop-mad girls decided they should stay home instead.

Faye's mum, Janie, can't see what the problem is: "As far as I'm aware the girls have not broken any rule and I can't see the problem. Their hair looks nice."

The girls are waiting to hear from the school to find out what happens next.
