Default Would you wear this hairstyle to YOUR job?

I like it and I want to. I just don't feel like any hair drama on the job though. So I'll refrain for now until I get the courage up.

Would you rock this style on the job?

i totally would. it's gorgeous and i don't think it's unprofessional. but! it depends on your work environment. sadly it probably wouldn't fly in a more conservative workplace like banking or finance.

I have and everyone loves it when I do. I work in a restaurant as a chef and everyone loves this soo much more than my afro puff. However the puff has gotten me the nickname black sunflower or simply flower. My french chef was so in love with my hair.

It looks like a WnG or a twistout. I've been rocking a style similar to this on and off for weeks, now. My hair isn't as thick or as long, though. It's fine for a lot of office environments.

I actually just wore my hair like that to work. I had on a headband to keep the hair out of my face. I wasn't planning on my hair being so big, but I couldn't be bothered trying to tame it. So I just wore it to work... I got a ton of compliments. In my mind it was a simple braiout gone wrong/wild but people thought it was so cute.

I wear my hair in a similar style and I work in a professional environment. IMO loose curly styles tend to be more acceptable these days in professional environments than braids or twists (which is how I'd prefer to wear my hair).

yes. i teach at a university and used to wear buns all the time. for the last few weeks since my hair has gotten healthier with CG methods i've been wearing my hair similarly (loose fluffy twist out). i think i look professional and have been getting a lot of positive feedback

That's a wash n go, and it's pretty normal around here. Even in DC. In fact, you see a lot of loose naturals floating around, even working in what is considered more conservative/corporate environments, so yup....I'd have no problems wearing my hair like that.

yes.. i do, matter a fact i did today! I was weary of it at first.. wore it like that for a week and when i came back the next week with my hair straightened my boss said "what happened to the pretty curls?" so from then on it was a go!! Especially because it was more of a "crazy fro"..

Ive only gotten compliments when i wear my hair like this.. only one person said something negative and he was a 10yr old so i didnt care, went something on the lines of "bad hair day?" my response, "no, how about i didnt comb it at all.. problem?"

I would wear my hair like this to any job i have however, other than jobs like the military or security (TSA at LAX) where everyone has to wear your hair pinned up or a certain way. If its your natural texture someone cannot tell you you cannot wear your hair that way when others are doing it, its discrimination & i will be quick to call it out! The lady with the straight hair can just wash hers and walk out the door and still be "professional" why cant I?

Hairstyle? Her hair doesn't even really looked combed/coiffed to me, Just the way it kinda comes out of her head.. My hair is way curlier and can get way bigger than that and yep i rock it daily lol.. Why would someone be embarrassed to rock what comes out of a lot of folks heads naturally?
