“Disney Look” Restrictions Loosened; Allowing for Gender-Inclusive Hairstyles, Tattoos, Jewelry, Etc.

In an unprecedented move, The Walt Disney Company is updating their guidelines to the “Disney Look” model for cast member appearance while working.

Disney published an official update, citing their work towards progress, which includes the addition of the 5th key: Inclusion.

We’re looking at other traditions, too – including the policies that guide how our cast members show up for work. Our new approach provides greater flexibility with respect to forms of personal expression surrounding gender-inclusive hairstyles, jewelry, nail styles, and costume choices; and allowing appropriate visible tattoos. We’re updating them to not only remain relevant in today’s workplace, but also enable our cast members to better express their cultures and individuality at work.

According to Disney, the company believes Cast Members will continue to be able to deliver top-of-the-line service while expressing themselves personal, which will help create a richer, personal and more engaging experience.

This is just the beginning as we continue to work toward a world where we all belong – including a more diverse and inclusive Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. There’s more to do, but we’re committed to listening, learning and making meaningful improvements.
