Mohican style, shaved at the sides and cuts with patterns are not permitted. Hair products may not be worn other than on own clothes days.

Hair accessories should be used for keeping hair under control and not for decoration. Small plain hair bobbles may be worn; unobtrusive ribbons or hairbands may be worn in either red or navy.
