PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island - The US Navy says it will now allow servicewomen to sport ponytails and other hairstyles in a move it says will make the service more inclusive.

Many black women had asked for changes to female grooming standards. A female sailor, Yeoman First Class LaToya Jones, announced the new policy during a Facebook Live event on Tuesday with Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson. The new standards went into effect on Wednesday.

Lock hairstyles, or ropelike strands, are also now allowed, as are wider hair buns. And women can wear ponytails while in uniform.
