After more than a year of speculation, the secretary of the Army signed off on new grooming standards.

The Army Publishing Directorate will publish updated regulations within the next few weeks outlining just what changes there will be, officials said Friday.

These long-awaited uniform policy publications will replace more than 50 all-Army contact messages and include new policies on many topics such as tattoos, fingernail polish and general uniform wear. Some of the contents also will be punitive.

“We are dedicated to ensuring soldiers and leaders have easy access to policies to ensure our Army maintains a professional, neat and soldierly appearance, which is the foundation of our profession,” stated an Army news release.
