Does the Pentecostal Church Have a Dress Code?

Apostolic Pentecostal denominations, such as the United Pentecostal Church and the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, regulate the dress and hairstyles of their female members. However, most Pentecostal denominations do not have a formal dress code for members, aside from a general encouragement to practice modesty in dress.

In most cases, women in Apostolic Pentecostal churches dress in full-length dresses or skirts at all times, although certain congregations allow female members to wear pants specifically designed for women outside of church. Women in these same Pentecostal denominations do not cut their hair, often wearing it up in a bun. Moreover, many Apostolic denominations prohibit the use of makeup and wearing jewelry other than a wedding band.
