All cadets are able to get haircuts on campus. In fact, the cost is included in the tuition and room & board fees paid each year. Our barber, Regina Delman, has been at Fork Union Military Academy since 1994. Haircuts are available Monday-Friday throughout the school year, with the few exceptions of major and extended leaves. Along the back wall is a collection of pictures and nametags of former cadets who wish to leave behind more than just their recently trimmed hair.
Hair will be neat and closely trimmed. The hair may be clipped at the edges of the side and back and will be evenly graduated all the way around the head (blended or faded and not edged as an outline) from zero length (skin) at the hairline to at least the top orifice of the ear circling around the back of the head, where it may then extend to the maximum hair length. Hair will not be over 3 inches in length fully extended (an extended hair, not the style, determines proper length) on the upper portion of the head. The bulk of the hair shall not exceed approximately 2 inches. Bulk is defined as the distance that the mass of hair protrudes from the scalp when styled. The back and sides of the head below the hairline may be shaved to remove body hair.
