The ones I can't believe in professional jobs, are the ones with dreadlocks. That looks dirty, and disgusting.

This! Its a matted mess! I never really understood why people do that. In my gym there is a white lady with dreadlocks I asked her why? And she said its less expensive than braids and the upkeep is easy. Jesus be a comb!

I don't see the problem, all the females posted look professional and of good hygiene.


Now if they were a rat's nests like Bob Marley or Don King THAT would be different.

Maybe your problem is with the color of the women's skin not their hairstyle.

Not at all, if anything I thing its established that braids on white women are a Jamaican vacation deal but at least with black women its more tolerated as a normal adult hairstyle. I don't think too many people would take a white woman with braids seriously.

Apparently not the only time I have seen this is with quickie trips to Jamaica. I must have missed it when Hilary Clinton had her hair like that.

Is this still okay?

If you are speaking of the woman in your OP she is NOT white.

She is a good looking woman with a professional appearance.

What do you think of this type of hair for an interview in the corporate world. Yes or no
It's beautiful and neat! It certainly isn't distracting or somehow inappropriate.

But in any case I cringe at the tyranny of having to wear certain clothes and give the impression that we the workers have to grovel for employers when WE provide the services!

AGAIN, sure why not? Now we are speaking of FEMALES in the workplace.


Maybe if we got down to what your problem REALLY is.
