I read that as saying shorter hair is more likely to cause migraines, hair damage, and hair loss.

I assumed it meant they were allowed to have longer hair, but needed to have it up tight - as in putting it up into a bun. That'd certainly cause headaches.

I love how the government says you can't discriminante based on gender, and then have completely different rules for their employees based purely on gender. It's time to unify guidelines.

Having thick hair, I can understand the problem. If you have to keep it too short, it is hard to control.

The military is a job that requires you to wear a costume and has otherwise functional adults referring to each other by "callsigns" like "Meat," or "Lung," or "Lunchbox." Arbitrarily deciding which haircuts are allowed is the least weird thing they do.

[Fark user image 300x256]


When you're in-uniform it used to be the case that longer hair had to be curled into a tight bun at the top/back that had size restrictions. For some women, especially those with lots of body to their hair, this meant they would have to bind it so tight in order to stay within the rules that it would essentially pull, hard, on their scalp all day; this would damage their hair, pull it out by the roots, and cause stress/pain that would give people headaches.

Essentially the military used to take the stance, "If you don't like it, cut it off."

It seems some people need this information:

Traction alopecia is hair loss that's caused by repeatedly pulling on your hair. You can develop this condition if you often wear your hair in a tight ponytail, bun, or braids, especially if you use chemicals or heat on your hair.

I agree with that, although I suspect you suggest it in a bad faith attempt to undermine women (I don't know you, it's just the sort of thing a person like that would do.).

Instead of complaining that women can do this, we should be demanding that all soldiers be able to wear long hair and always should have. Just like women should always have been able to serve in combat.

talkertopc: Why did the old rule resulted in migraines, hair damage, and hair loss in women but not in men?


In order to keep long hair, previously women were forced to tightly bun their hair at the back if their head. Traction alopecia is hair loss that occurs when hair is pulled tightly back repeatedly. Tight hair can lead to other issues like migraines. There are multiple skin issues that can effect men that also come up with military grooming standards. There are multiple studies showing that a change was needed to protect our military's health.

Yeah, I never understood why these rules are applied unevenly.  If it's really a matter of short hair being practical for the job, and women are now serving in the same roles as men, don't the women need short hair, too?  If it's really just about enforcing conformity and restricting individuality, then I guess the female soldiers need that as well, right?

How is this a difference?  Men can have long hair, too.  I mean, for some of them, nature has denied that option, but not for all.

Father: 1933-1968, USAAC/USAAF/USAF (Ret.)

Me: 1974-1995 USN (Ret.)
Grandmother (maternal): 1917-1918 USN Yeomanettes
Grandfather (maternal): 1917-1919 USA (died during Spanish Flu Pandemic Ft. Sheridan, IL)

Great-Grandfather (paternal): 1861-1862 USA Infantry (11th Illinois Co K, died following capture of
    Ft. Columbus, KY).

This list doesn't include over a score of relatives who also served. Two others died in service, coincidently both in bus accidents (1943 & 1997). While we often laughed about haircut regs, they were such a small part of our service. When I retired, I was so used to getting a haircut every two weeks, that when I met Hubby, a licensed cosmetologist, he claimed I was "pestering" him about haircuts and I joked about how much money I was saving. He's been cutting/doing my (and our family's) hair for 25 years now. I hate when my hair touches my ears and I prefer a nice set of "whitewalls" around the ears and a blocked back (actually violated Navy Regs when I was active-duty). Most of the women in my family kept the back short enough to not touch the shirt collar just out of habit, I think. When Sister had to get wigs because of her cancer, they were made per USAF Regs then because she was proud of her Reserve Service and cried when she was Medically Retired.
