Glamour Don’ts At Bob Jones University

From Pam’s House Blend comes the latest in fashion tips for students at uber-fundie Bob Jones University in South Carolina.

* Hair must be cut in a traditional, conservative style–not shaved, spiked, tangled, or shelved. It may not be colored or highlighted.
* Sideburns should not extend past the middle of the ear. Men are expected to remain clean-shaven.
* Necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are not permitted.
* Hats may not be worn indoors except in the gym.
* Men are not permitted to get tattoos or wear body piercings.

So I guess Jesus Christ himself could not be a student at BJU: he had long hair, a beard, and he got some body piercings over Easter break.
