I'm going to take the opposite point of view. I was involved in color guard for eight years (high school and college) and we did have to have our hair exactly as specified for performances. I have very wavy, thick hair and was required to straighten it for some performances (we had different hair styles each year depending on the show's theme). Almost all flag corps I knew of at the time had similar policies. Everyone had to wear the exact same makeup (we were even required to buy an exact shade and brand of eyeshadow, lip gloss, etc. for uniformity), same hair, same uniform - no exceptions. Of course, this was only for performances; the expectations for practice were merely that our hair would be pulled back from our face in a ponytail, braid, etc.
