WUF FOCUS - HAIR

As we return back from Christmas Break, our WUF focus is on hair. Female standards have been extremely good while male standards have been lacking. According to the dress standards set out in the Cadet and Jr. Ranger Dress Instructions, Section 2, Paragraph 5 Sub-Paragraph a, male standards shall be as follows:

Male Cadets. (see Figure 2-2-A). Hair shall be taper-trimmed at the back, sides, and above the ears to blend with the hair-style; be no more than 15 cm (6 in.) in length and sufficiently short that, when the hair is groomed and headdress is removed, no hair shall touch the ears or fall below the top of the eyebrows; be no more than 4 cm (1-1/2 in.) in bulk at the top of the head, gradually decreasing to blend with the taper-trimmed sides and back; and be kept free from the neck to a distance of 2.5 cm (1 in.) above the shirt collar. Taper trimmed square back styles and shaving of all the hair on the head are permitted

Hair standards will be checked this week for our CO's parade and UCAN's (Uniform Corrective Action Notices) will be issued for those cadets found not to be within standards.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Standards Department.
