In the photos, her teenager daughter it visibly upset, covering her face with a short haircut. Her mother says that the girl's father and stepmother ordered her to cut her hair as punishment for getting highlights.

Now the teenager's mother and father, who are both volunteer firefighters, are under investigation by the local police department for child abuse.

The mother posted to Facebook again, saying that a local wig store in Toledo was able to help her daughter pick out a wig saying, "She got her smile back because of you and your kindness!" 

I'd like to thank the ladies at Lady Jane's on Glendale in Toledo, OH for making my baby feel more like herself!...
