I don't think it has to do with the curls per se but rather having unkempt hair. A lot of curly girls do not know how to manage their hair. Some straight girls don't either and that's not professional! I know I've gone in with second day hair in the past that looks a mess. As long as your curls are nicely maintained you shouldn't have a problem. My 2 cents.
