In my line of work, it doesnt matter how my hair is. However: I dont believe I have EVER seen an anchorwoman with curlie hair; in films, I dont believe I have every seen a woman executive who has curls of any kind. If she is dressed "professionally", she has straight hair, or it is worn pulled back, or up, you never see curls. OP, you are not wrong. There HAVE been several posts about this. A few years ago, a man in a bar referred to my hair as "party hair", which I think was a compliment at the moment, but you can see where he was headed with it.
