Hair length a problem?

Anonymous A asked on Nov 19, 2019 - 3 answers

I'm a woman that has super long hair (hip-length). I have it for cultural reasons and was planning on cutting it if I do get an offer. However, I was wondering if it would look unprofessional to have it that long in an interview, or I am overthinking it?

Hi,

I would say - depends on the country. I can see how in some countries people can be subjective and conservative.

But I think that chasing MBB offer is not worth cutting your hair. Pls don't cut it and be yourself

Best!

Hi,

You are definitely overthinking, please keep your beautiful hair if you want to keep them as they are.

The length of your hair is not going to be unprofessional, that for sure!
