That's what I was expecting too. My vision was a mohawk of big orange spikes with black tips.

I, also, expected a huge mohawk. The woman in the picture looks very professional and classy. I'd absolutely hire her, assuming she was qualified.

So, since it seems that no one would be turned off by the braids (and for the life of me, I can't figure out why anyone would be), would anyone hire this person for an office job?

Hiring managers would you hire someone with hair like this for a serious office job-mohawk.jpg

Let's assume the position would interface with internal and external customers. Also, let's assume that experience level, education, and personality are a complete "fit" for the job and organization. Everything, except the hair, is perfect for the position. (Assuming a more traditional, conservative culture.)

You hiring him?

I would hire him, but I would require that he wear it unspiked and cover with some kind of cap - and I would get it in writing with the offer. If he is that good and has the personality to deal with my clients, why not?

How he wears it evenings and weekends is up to him.

While I'm sure it was an honest question that intended to not be hurtful in nature , the fact that it was even a question makes me think that cultural issues are still subconsciously affecting hiring decisions in some of our workplaces, despite dubious claims of a "post-racial society".

The red mohawk?
Personally, no. The look is unprofessional so it's not a "fit".

If it was a trendy place, family run homey business etc, yes I would hire the red Mohawk. If it's a conservative corporation or a high end customer service type place, then no and he would probably not want to work there anyhow.

There is no way a person could do office work with a hair style like that. You can tell she'd probably steal too. Wouldn't be surprised if she was on drugs.
