Not a hiring manager, but that looks very nice!

Me too! Actually, when I saw the thread title the first thing that came to mind was a guy I met with a purple to green gradient in his spiky mohawk. It was pretty impressive, actually...but not office-appropriate in most situations.

The hair in that video looks fine to me for an office environment. Clean and neat. What other qualifications are there?

I beleive a anchor on msnbc Melissa Harris has this same hair style and she comes across very professional. This would not be a problem.

I'd guess the opposite: that OP asked the question in an attempt to extract cultural hiring decisions/discrimination, thinking they're be lots of posts saying "no way!"
I'll bet OP has no problem with the hairstyle.

If this young woman takes that much time to make her hair look that good for an interview, she is likely to get a second interview/callback. That style is not easy to accomplish no matter who does it. I'm impressed.

She is a beautiful, classy young woman and I love, love, love her hair style, both while long and loose and put up in both the styles she fixed her hair in. Love her hair! I would hire her over some other young women I won't mention for fear of being "slammed."

Ok so I guess the style is okay. Does it only have to be black or are bolder summer colors like 30(a light brown) mixed with 33(auburn) okay? Or is that too much?

I'd hire her, especially if she would be seen by the public. Her hair adds to her polished appearance.
