Ummm…no. I don’t really know where she’s getting the idea that to be professional you need short hair??

@Pupperoni:  I think long hair is sexy and feminine….which is why she thinks it’t good for work? But I totally don’t agree. I think you should ignore it entirely!

I read online while trying to figure out business vs. business casual dress that a woman should either have short hair over her shoulders or “make her hair appear to be that length” (ie, putting it up if its longer).

TBH, it got under my skin. Now we have to look like men to succeed? Pass. I have long hair (past my shoulder blades) in a job where it doesn’t get in the way, and I make sure it’s cut and colored in an attractive and put-together way. I’m not wearing it up every single day cause some people don’t like women to look feminine at their professional jobs 😉

That might have been true in the 80s, but I see many professional (and older) women wearing long hair. Now, pig tails wouldn’t be a professional look, but long hair is definitively not unprofessional.
