I like my long hair, but i cut it to join the USAF! mullets German soldiers will be allowed to sport mullets and ponytails after a court ruled army hair regulations were unconstitutional. The ruling came after an 18-year-old soldier was locked up in a cell and fined £100 when he refused to chop off his 10-inch ponytail. The teenaged recruit only agreed to let army barbers cut his hair when faced with three weeks in solitary confinement, but made a formal complaint at the same time. The military court in Munich ruled in favour of the soldier and argued the varying rules for male and female recruits were "unconstitutional" and "incomprehensible". It said forcing male soldiers to cut their long hair went against their rights as individuals.
