military shaves restrictions on women in uniform wearing ponytails
The Canadian military has not yet relaxed, but women in uniform are allowed to wear ponytail for the first time.
This move also makes the nylon stockings optional on the skirt, can wear flat shoes instead of high heels or Oxford shoes, after recently relaxing the restrictions on Beard, boots and off, latest efforts to modernize Canadian Armed Forces
At the same time, the senior commanders have made concerted efforts to increase the number of women in the army, which is slower than some would like.

\"Sorry for men, you have to do your impression of David Beckham at home: there is no ponytail for you, even the short breed.
Like last fall\'s decision to allow a beard in more cases, the latest move received a mixed reaction from service and veterans on social media, which some praised for being overdue, others worry that the military doesn\'t look so professional.
But it may not hurt the military\'s efforts to recruit and retain more women in uniform.
Minister of Defense.
Jonathan Vance declared publicly shortly after taking over the force on February 2016 that he hoped that by 2026, women would make up 25 of the Army.

Vance acknowledged to the Canadian media that the growth rate was slower than he expected. —
