Agree - long curly hair doesn't have to be unruly. I worked with a woman who had long thick hair very much like mine. She washed and dried it and finished it with a curling iron so it was pretty perfect. I don't have that much skill or patience so mine isn't that refined.

I think it depends on the work environment and your hair style. If it's a very conservative environment and your curls are long and unruly, it may not be a fit. When I was looking for office work, I straightened my hair (to play it safe) and then after I got the job, I wore it curly.
