FYI

Army Secretary John McHugh on Thursday approved a long-awaited revision to grooming and
uniform regulations, according to an Army statement.

The service is working to finalize a pamphlet that will be sent to every corner of the Army i hopes of educating soldiers on the new rules.

Proposed Updates to AR 670-1
1. MANY changes are coming to AR 670-1. This is just a summary of some of them.

DO NOT BEGIN TO ENFORCE UNTIL THE REGULATION IS COMPLETE, APPROVED, AND PUBLISHED!

2. New revision of the regulation will define the following terms: eccentric, faddish, conservative, inconspicuous, unsightly, hair braids/plaits.

3. AR 670-1 will be a PUNITIVE order in the new regulation.

4. Sideburns will not extend below the top of the ear.

5. Soldiers will be clean shaven on AND off duty (even during leave).

6. Female and Male hair grooming standards will become more restrictive and better defined

7. Females will be allowed to put their hair into a pony tail during PT.

8. Males will be prohibited from wearing cosmetics to include nail polish, females may wear cosmetics conservatively, but can only wear nail polish in service, mess, or dress uniforms.

9. Females fingernail length will not exceed 1/4 inch, no fake nails, add-ons, or extensions will be authorized.

10. Tattoos will not be visible above the neck line when the IPFU is worn. Tattoos will not extend below the wrist line and not on the hands. Sleeve tattoos will be prohibited (this one will
be grandfathered).

11. Soldiers will not walk while engaged in activities that require the hand salute (eating, cell phone use, smoking, etc.).

12. ACUs will not be commercially pressed; hand ironing of the ACU only will be authorized.

13. Bags worn over the shoulder will only be black or the color print of the uniform i.e. ACU, without logos.

14. the new regulation will specify civilian clothes standards both on and off duty and both on and off post.

15. No visible body piercings on or off duty and on or off post, males will never be allowed to wear earrings. Ear gauging will be unauthorized.

16. No dental ornamentation or gold teeth will be authorized.
