The Army's top noncommissioned officer officially rolled out the service's new grooming standards today through the Center for the Army Professional and Ethic website.

The regulations outline everything from tattoos to umbrella use to hairstyles.

Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond Chandler released a YouTube video to compliment the release of the update Army Regulation 670-1, which governs appearance standards for soldiers.

"Each of us must ensure we not only know the regulations but also the underlying reasons for their implementation," Chandler said in the video. "By doing so we can better understand why they play such an important part in our army profession."

The center's website has further information to help soldiers know what's included in the regulation.
