Focus on Military Hair Styling Restrictions

Based on CNN and USAToday recent articles, there is a petition to have the recently updated military hairstyling restrictions lifted. Our military women need your support.

The words "neat and uniform" hairstyling can be associated with a "White Supremacy" mentality.  Some hair types, ethnicity groups, curl patterns are NOT naturally uniform.  Should the military force soldiers to use hair chemicals?  Are wigs more acceptable than one's natural hair?

This picture of the judges in uniform wigs came from the online Wall Street Journal.

Surely, if micro-braids are acceptable, then dreadlocks should be acceptable. The only way to get uniformity is to require wigs.

I would love to be a part of any future military focus groups regarding hair styling.
