Lol i totally agree i was like "oh really that's it!?" I mean in all honestly why wouldn't you rock that style and why wouldn't you be allowed to? Its pretty much how our hair grows so if someone told you you can't wear your hair loose then they might as well tell all their other employees with their long straight hair that they can't wear it loose either because you can't help it that that's how your hair looks when its down and out IMO

Does this hair count? Because clearly you can see that I am at my desk at work.

If my hair had "hang" like that I would definitely rock it with pride.

I agree with the other ladies; looks like a WnG to me! My hair isn't that long, but when it is, yes, that will be what I wear to work!

Heyell to the yayah! Except I would make the top bigger. I like that round, out, afro look. I don't look good with the top laying down so I fluff mine up at the top as well. I wear my hair like this to work:



This isn't me but besides the color (my hair is jet black from all the amla treatments) and the hairline (my hair starts like right after my dang eye) that's pretty much EXACTLY my hair, length and everything after I've banded. I wear my hair like this to work most of the time.

Yes. I did it in real estate and I'm doing it now. Hers looks like a WNG. My is fluffier from doing twistouts/braidouts and bigger. Nothing wrong with either.

I like the "Heyell to yayah" answer. It's a great look, imo, and with your pretty face --- you'd look mah-velous.

I'd wear it to work (well, meetings, since that's when I have to look semi-professional) in a heartbeat, if my "I'm trying here" type-2 waves would let me.

Definitely and you should be able to. I do wonder what people would say if you wore your hair like that to a job interview in a business setting though. Think it would affect you getting hired?

That's not me, LOL!!! Only her hair is like mine. Not to sound conceited, but the woman in the pic is pretty but she really has nothing on me.

Of course I would. Why not? In fact I think that's how my hair looked on my job interview... I might have had a hair band on.

I have as well, and am the only one in the building with hair that extends that far. I thrive off of it!

yep, I would and I do! I kind of have something similar going on today and I technically work in a corporate environment. Not as buttoned up as finance, but definitely corporate :-)

I wouldnt wear it to an interview, but last month that's how I wore my hair to work everyday. I made my curls hang a little more with more product and stretching with the blow dryer, but this was a close approximation. I've worked at my job for 3 years and this was my first time having the nerve to do it, everyone asked questions ( which i hated), but by the second day everyone had moved on.
