White Falcon Volume XXXII Number 27 Keflavik, Iceland July 9, 1976 announces CNO new hair regs. In a NAVOP message to the fleet last week, the Chief of Naval Operations ordered a revision to the standards of grooming for Naval personnel regarding hair styles. The message, citing more than a year of study, said the changes were not a reactionary departure from previous standards, but would set forth specific measurable limits which are both reason- able and enforceable. The message also stated that prev- iously published standards were broadly defined and open to subjective interpre- tation. Inconsistencies in adherence to the standards occurred, the message said, because no limits on hair length or bulk were specified. The changes in hair standards are contained in Change One to U. S. Navy Uniform Regulations, dated June 21. Under the new regulations, for men, current hairstyles, including Afros, will continue to be permitted. However, hair must be tapered from the lower hairline upward at least three-fourths inch, and outward no more than three- fourths inch. Block cut is permitted if a tapered appearance is maintained. Hair will be noimore than four inches long, will not touch the collar, extend below the eyebrows when headgear is re- moved, nor interfere with the proper wearing of headgear. The bulk of the hair will not exceed two inches. Moustaches may not extend below a horizontal line extending across the corners of the mouth and no more than one-fourth inch beyond a vertical line drawn up from the corners of the mouth. In other words: No Handlebars or Fu Man Chu style moustaches are permitted. Sideburns will not extend below the bottom of the ear lobe and cannot be flared out, but must be an even width. For women, when in uniform or in a duty status, hair in the back may touch, but not fall below the lower edge of the collar. Exaggerated styles, including those with excessive fullness or extreme height, are not authorized. The regula- tions say the Afro, Natural, Bouffant, and other similar hair styles are per- mitted, but not to an exaggerated ex- tent. Plaited or braided hair may not be worn, and visible hairnets will be worn only if required for specific duty. Other areas covered in the change in- clude the wearing of wigs or hairpieces by male personnel, and hair ornaments and ribbons for women, as well as hair coloring and cosmetics, k For full details on the new guide- -lines, see Change One of the 1975 Uni- form Regulations.
