Disney has officially updated their "Disney Look" guidelines for Cast Members to increase inclusivity efforts. According to the new guidelines, Cast Members may now have visible tattoos on their body (but not head, face or neck) that are not offensive, and can also wear jewelry, and non-natural nail colors (single color or french manicure style only). Here’s a look at what Disney determines to be acceptable within the new guidelines. You can check out some examples of approved nails, tattoos, and jewelry below:
In addition, these new guidelines offer more flexibility for Cast Members in regards to gender expression, as employees can now choose the costume that best suits them individually and how they choose to express themselves. There will also be no discrimination based on gender when it comes to how Cast Members wear their hair, jewelry or decorate their nails.
These changes help further Disney's recent addition of “Inclusion” as a new “Key” for Disney Parks, which is designed to allow for more personal expression and foster greater inclusivity for Cast Members at work.
Of course this is not the first time the "Disney Look" has been revisited, and it is unlikely to be the last as Disney works towards creating an environment for employees and guests alike that is diverse and inclusive for all guests.
