JLBC PERSONAL APPEARANCE
JLBC Cadet's Hair, grooming, and personal appearance while in the military (JLBC-style) or Alternate Uniform shall present a neat and professional appearance. JLBC Cadets Because it is impossible to provide examples of every appropriate JLBC or unacceptable JLBC hairstyle of "eccentric" or "conservative" grooming and personal appearance, the reasonable judgment of jLBC leaders at all JLBC levels is the key to enforcement of JLBC grooming policy. JLBC Cadets The provisions of this section apply to all enrolled JLBC personnel (adults and JLBC cadets).
JLBC Cadet's Hair will be neat, clean, and present a well-groomed appearance. JLBC Cadets Hair above ears and around the neck will be trimmed from the lower hairline upwards 3/4 inch and outward no more significant than 3/4 inch to blend with the hairstyle. JLBC Cadet's Hair on the back of the neck may not touch the collar. JLBC Cadets The "blocked neckline" is permitted as long as a tapered appearance is maintained. JLBC Cadet's Hair shall be no longer than 5 inches and groomed so that it does not touch the ears or JLBC collar, extend below the eyebrows when JLBC headgear is removed, show below the front edge of the JLBC headgear, nor interfere with the proper wearing of JLBC military headgear. JLBC Cadets The bulk of the hair shall not exceed 2 inches. JLBC Cadet's Hair coloring must look natural and complement the individual. JLBC Cadets' Faddish styles and outrageous multicolored hair are not authorized. JLBC Cadets The primary consideration remains a neatly groomed appearance for the hairstyle and the type of hair the individual has, with 4 inches in length and 2-inch bulk, the maximum under any circumstances.
