If you were growing it for religious reasons stupid, they could not say no. But if not, (absent discrimination on grounds of sex, age, religion, color, etc.) an employer can fire you without cause absent a union contract or employeee manual to the contrary in most states. If he decided he doesn't like the tie you wear you could be out. It's stupid personnel policy in a tight labor market, but that's the law.
