I'm getting prepared for ODS beginning this next year, and have a few simple questions regarding male grooming standards. I have a mustache that i've had for quite awhile, recently, I chopped it into navy regs but was curious - are we even allowed to have a mustache at ODS?
Similarly, all of the pictures i've seen of men at ODS seem to sport the same 'high and tight' style haircut. Navy regs seem awfully generous for hair lengths (4 inches on top for example), yet I see no one with hair longer than what appears to be a half inch. My question is, are we required to have it 'high and tight' for ODS, but can grow it longer later, or am I fine with having it meet regs?
