Hair Dying.

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by tuts, Apr 19, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi again, Please don't think that I'm bordering on being gullible or anything, but a friend of mine is currently doing his stint at Raleigh, and he tells me that women aren't aloud to dye their hair once joined. With me having blond hi-lights he's telling me to let them grow out. Is this bloke taking the feckin piss out of me or is this true?
  2. He probably is extracting the urine, just turn up at Raleigh and the training team will give you the heads up PDQ.
  3. Thanks for that, much appreciated! He had me a bet, if he as right he gets a photo of my arse. So you've not only saved me from having prostitute roots but also my dignity. Thanks mate! (next time I'm not carrying that teddy bear through customs!)

    These are the regulations:

    Article 0223. Female Personnel

    1. Hair. Shall be kept neatly groomed and shall not extend below the lower edge of the shirt collar. Long hair should be worn up. Varying styles of hair, straight or curled, are permitted within these limits but unnatural hair colours and exaggerated styles, including those with excessive fullness, shortness or extreme height are not permitted. In no case shall the bulk or length of the hair detract from a smart and well groomed appearance or preclude the proper wearing of naval head-dress. Hair ornaments, including scrunchies, shall not be worn. Every effort shall be made to ensure that grips, hairpins, nets and similar items used to secure the hair are as unobtrusive as possible. Hairstyles shall be secured or styled back from the face. Ratings with long hair may wear it in a ‘pony tail’, secured with a non-synthetic tie when forming part of an emergency party so that breathing apparatus can be donned quickly without the need to remove hair grips. This relaxation also extends to ratings off duty in their mess decks.


    You will want easy-care hair at HMS Raleigh, there won't be much time for hair care regimes.
  5. Hey tuts, and I quote

    Is this bloke taking the feckin piss out of me or is this true?

    taking the fecking piss is not really language for a Princess, is it?
  6. Please forgive me and my foul mouthed language. You are quite right, my 'English Rose' manners went straight out of ones door just then. Thanks for the advice and keeping me in line, will do me the world of good once I'm in. And thanks for that soleil. x
