In a vignette in Chris Rock’s Good Hair, high school seniors describe “appropriate” workplace hair as a straightened mane that is “neat and professional.” Though they are on the money with “neat and professional,” they are sorely mistaken with the perception of hairstyles in the workplace. Every woman has her own unique style, and is able to express her style through her crowning glory, her hair. With this said, there is a time and a place for everything. Whether processed or natural, hair should not betray your professionalism. If your workplace is not the type of environment that is conducive to neon-colored punk-style clothing, then your hair should not have hot pink highlights.
WARNING: Don’t let your hair extensions tell on you. Make sure that they blend with your own hair and skin tone.
