Anyways I have my serious work hair on, and I have a BIG question for y’all.
I was just reading a magazine about Hair and the workplace and what is acceptable or not, and it got me thinking. Apparently the article talks about how certain hairstyles are not acceptable in Jand and Yankee workplaces, hairstyles such as Cornrows and sometimes Afros. Can you believe that??? I don’t even know where to start. I mean what if my religion and lifestyle require I wear Natural hair, does that mean I get fired? I mean isn’t one’s hairstyle a reflection of who they are and why should people judge and determine what’s right and wrong??Really? Anyways its not just oversees I remember trying to rock this curly hair thingy in Nigeria, and while I was getting it done in the salon the lady beside me said “ I guess ur not a Banker, because no boss will allow that”. First of all lady, no one asked you (lol, that was in my mind of course), but still, why does my hair style matter at work in Naija?
Anyways, incase you are in the same boat and are wondering what hair to do for your consecutive work (be it in business) I figure the girls from Apprentice Africa can serve as a point of reference.
Joyce's Short and Serious look. I love, tres ChIC!
Hannah's Braided elegance. Very versatile!
Bekeme's sassy BOB. Chin length and straight to the POINT!
Eunice's wavy, curly weave. I love a woman that can change her weave for any occasion.
Enjoy and BEST OF Lucks THIS WEEK!!
