German police told to smarten up

BERLIN, Jan 14 (Reuters) - German police have been told to smarten up ahead of this June's World Cup, shaving off three-day beards and wearing more traditional hairstyles, an Interior Ministry spokeswoman said on Saturday.

The order, which applies to Germany's federal police, matches regulations which already apply to state police forces, she said, confirming a report in the weekly Der Spiegel.

The magazine said that as well as stubble, piercings, excessive jewellery and visible tattoos, the order explicitly targeted 'so-called Lagerfeld ponytails', named after the hair style made famous by flamboyant fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld.

It said other hairstyles 'which may be perceived as an expression of a marked individualist demeanour' were also banned.

Makeup was only allowed so long as it could be regarded as 'socially appropriate for a policeman or policewoman.'
