The Navy says it will now allow servicewomen to sport ponytails and other hairstyles, reversing a policy that long forbade them from letting their hair down. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson says it makes the Navy more inclusive. A female sailor announced the new policy Tuesday with Richardson. Lock hairstyles are also now allowed. Wider hair buns too. At the U.S. Naval War College in Rhode Island Wednesday, women said they're excited to switch from buns to ponytails.
