So this may be a dumb question but I'm overly cautious about the whole thing as it is anyway, but would it be okay during the NVC stage to say dye one's hair / get a haircut?

Don't laugh! lol

My thinking: If they've made us take FOUR passport-type photos of ourselves to send in (two for USCIS and two for NVC packet), they probably really want to know exactly how we look right? I mean we're not talking anything drastic here like dying ones hair blue or buzzing the hair off completely... but say some red in the hair, or dying black hair light brown or something like that. Getting a bob haircut (is that what its called? short hair on girls? idk lolol)

Just curious as to any experiences etc... I assume they just want to know how your FACE looks but this is the government again, anythings possible! =P

They do not care.

I had highlights put in and had my hair completely chemically straightened during the process. As long as the photos you bring to the interview and medical look like you then you are fine. Changing hair colour or style does not matter.

bah- my wife grew her hair from 2 inches to 3 feet, and i've lost 70 pounds.

But I guess the time tick you are chasing after is

photo submittal with ds-230 at nvc (ds-260??)

to

interview day. - ie - the period inbetween, yes?

IMO, give them yer 'pretty picture', that visa stamp is forever.
