Manning, formerly Bradley Manning, is currently serving out a 35-year sentence for submitting classified documents to WikiLeaks in 2010.
In early 2015, Manning requested permission to grow her hair out. Government officials denied the request, leading to a law suit filed in federal court in Washington.
The suit claims that gender-appropriate grooming falls under the recognized treatment for gender dysphoria and should be allowed.
In August, Manning was charged with four violations of custody rules, including having possession of the June 2015 Vanity Fair issue that featured Caitlyn Jenner on the cover.
