In an effort to build a more inclusive culture, senior leaders have made updates to dress and appearance standards, including changes to: - Individuals granted a shaving waiver may cut or trim their facial hair. In June 2020, the Air Force’s surgeon general extended approval for shaving waivers that now remain valid for up to five years, for Airmen and Space Professionals diagnosed with Pseudofolliculitis Barbae. PFB, also known as razor bumps, is a chronic inflammatory condition that occurs more frequently in African American males. While Airmen and Space Professionals who are diagnosed with PFB will continue treatment and education on how to improve and ultimately heal the condition, the dress and appearance verbiage allows them to more readily present a neat, clean, and professional image. - Removal of the word “faddish”, references to complexion and associated subjectivity. Airmen across the Total Force had provided feedback that the term “faddish” was subjective, and resulted in particular demographics being disproportionately caught up by the enforcement of those rules that included the term. - Name tapes/tags can include diacritical accent and hyphens, when it is a more accurate representation of a legal name and helps with pronunciation (e.g. Peña, Lewis-Miles, Müller, Calderón). - Authorization for male members to have one straight line part (cut, clipped, or shaved) on either side of their head. - Removal of the restriction on combat boots height, acknowledging that some career fields require more flexibility. https://go.usa.gov/xf2kV
