The #USArmy to allow #female #soldiers wear ponytails in all #Uniforms


Seems a little victory worthy celebrating has yet again been won. The USArmy is expanding it’s tolerance for hair, not just hair but female long hair. Ladies will no longer need to shrink, tie up short or cut their hairs to wear their uniforms. Read update from CNN below and leave a smile for the army girls.

from @cnn The US Army will allow female soldiers to wear ponytails in all uniforms, the Army announced Thursday. “This new modification is more practical for our female Soldiers. It allows them flexibility in a tactical environment, while maintaining a professional appearance in garrison,” Sgt. Maj. Brian C. Sanders said. Sanders added that commanders will “analyze the risk of a free hanging ponytail or braid” and use “discretion to determine if long hair will be secured or tucked inside the uniform top.”⁠
