Hairstyles must not interfere with the proper wear of any uniform headgear.

Hairstyle standards apply to Sailors while in uniform and in the performance of duty while wearing civilian clothes.

It is impossible to address every situation and every hairstyle thus unit and commanding officers and all leaders are empowered to use their judgment in applying grooming standards.

More information on hairstyle standards and other uniform regulations can be found on the Navy Uniform Matters Website.
