Don't forget a lot of the dress manual say.  At the rsm discretion

 :facepalm:  Seriously?  Have you even read the CAF Dress Instruction?  Nowhere does that phrase appear therein.

I'm an RSM. I have no discretion when it comes to the Dress Manual. It's gospel.

Now go on listening silence for a while......you're out of your arcs on this one.

I take your comment above as your having failed to adhere to QR&O 5.01.

I understand your leadership has failed you, but this is not "their fault."

'Hair shall be taper trimmed at the back, sides, and above the ears to blend with the hair-style; be no more than 15 cm (6 in.) in length and sufficiently short that, when the hair is groomed and headdress is removed, no hair shall touch the ears or fall below the top of the eyebrows; be no more than 4 cm(1-1/2 in.) in bulk at the top of the head, gradually decreasing to blend with the taper-trimmed sides and back; and be kept free from the neck to a distance of 2.5 cm (1 in.) above the shirt collar. Taper trimmed square back styles and shaving of all the hair on the head are permitted.'

So, saying that the hair had to be taper trimmed wasn't wrong after all. Your S\NCO's weren't shirking their duty and the RSM wasn't making things up as he went along.

You have to read the WHOLE reg(s) not just the part you think applies to you. Not knowing the full conversation, or seeing, hearing, reading what your RSM said only gives us half the story. Your side.

And just from the above your track record, of being in error, is already established.

At the risk of putting words in their mouth, I suspect that the poster was talking about the part I highlight in your quote of the dress regs and not a true square cut style.  Both rounded and square back taper styles are authorized but. like braids on females, not everyone is on board with that.

As I said, we really don't have any way of knowing what was truly said.
