Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

You're not missing much, just some 1940's looking illustrations of hair length, but here's the text:


3.1.3. Hair-Female. Minimum length is one inch, unless approved by the commander upon recommendation from a military treatment facility for medical reasons, to a maximum bulk of three inches from scalp. Hair will end above the bottom edge of collar and any side of an invisible line drawn parallel to the ground. When in doubt, assess correct length of hair with Airman standing in the position of attention. Except in the physical training uniform hair lengths that would be below the bottom edge of the collar will be pinned-up with no loose ends. Bangs will not ouch either eyebrow, to include an invisible line drawn across eyebrows and parallel to the ground. If worn, hairpins, combs, headbands, elastic bands and barrettes must match the hair color (i.e., blonde, brunette, natural red, black, grey), but hair must still comply with bulk and appearance standards. Ornaments are not authorized (i.e., ribbons, beads, jeweled pins). Scrunches are not authorized. Exception: While wearing the PTU, long hair will be secured but may have loose ends and may extend below the collar; i.e. ponytails.

The intent is for pinned-up hair to be styled in a manner that prevents loose ends from extending upward on the head. For example, when using a clip or hairpins, hair will not present the appearance of a ―rooster tail‖; when hair is in a bun, all loose ends must be tucked in and secured; when hair is in a pony tail, it must be pulled all the way through the elastic band and may hang naturally downward and not extending below the bottom of the collar (except while in the PTU). As with all hairstyles, a neat and professional image is essential.


Then it gets into braids, dreadlocks, frosting, etc., and finally proceed to standards for nail polish and tattoos - including tattoo removal, which possibly involves some sort of Air Force laser platform.
