simple question twisted into vanity

#1
Without sounding stupid but does anyone know if I'd really have to dye my hair colour from blonde back to brown in basic training? don't think i do sounds a bit stupid to me but says on the instructions "hair colour to be natural colour only" does that just mean no bright colours?
just dont want to turn up and get in s##t.

If its a chav colour ,Then if you want to be taken seriously i would .
Get your mum down to the local super market and purchase a light brown colour dye it only takes about 30 minutes and dye your hair for you .

...as long as the collar and cuffs match. Also, you'll upset the nice folks who make your ID Card if you keep changing hair colour every week!

"Sorry mate, that's not you, you've got blonde hair not brown, so you can't come onto camp!"

Your hair has to be a 'natural' colour (ie blonde, brown, black and in the interests of disabled rights they also allow ginger).

You won't have much chance to keep your hair dyed while you're in training so you're best off letting whatever you've coloured it to grow out now or dye it close to your natural colour.


Once you're out of training you can dye it if you want, although it still has to be 'natural' so no purple, orange or green is allowed.

Its just not worth the risk of pissing your DS off from day 1, I'd return it to your original colour. Cos thats what its telling you to do.!

Section commander-"why is your hair dyed?"

You-"but I just thought it meant no bright colours Corporal."

Section commander-"No its says on your JI's natural colour only you just thought you'd try and get round it."

You-"No but......

Section commander - "Dont F***ing argue with me! you think you're special........ETC

Play the game, you can dye it after your training.

You should be concerned about learning the skills of the soldier, not your hair.
Dont dye it back, don't dye it again. No place for vanity. Vanaity is gay

Shave it off and wear a wig. It'll save a lot of time during training.

How do they manage to do those buns, anyway?

No i havent got a shock coming just know how i like my hair and also isnt the army about having pride in yourself as well.
 
#15
Yes, pride in your ACCOMPLISHMENTS. Not in your choice of hair dye.

Hardly has to do with hair colour.Good turn out is important, not vanity. Are you a 15 y/o bird?

Are you having a Wah!? The Army doesnt give a s*** how you like your hair. Joing the Armed Forces is about making sacrifices and one of these is doing as you're told, when you're told.

You reckon you havnt got a shock coming eh? You're deliberatly going to disregard what you've been instructed to do by JI's cos you simply dont want to do what it says. Also you're going the ignore the advice given by people who are actually been through phase 1? Trust me that sort of attitude is going to get you in a world of shit.

You asked for a question on hair colour and were given sound advice. You choosing to ignore that advice because you reckon you'll get away with doing whatever the fcuk you like.
