So I was recently asked what sort of jobs, that I know of, allow such amazing, colourful, rainbow hair?
As you know the working world isn’t big on individual expression. In fact with some jobs, rocking up to work with shocking pink hair could even get you fired, no matter how well you do your job.
Which got me thinking… Generally if you don’t work directly with customers, (for example; technology, science and creative jobs) you tend to get away with more colourful hair. So I put together this list, and I thought I’d share it with you. So if you’re looking for a new job, or just starting out in the world of work, you might get some ideas for where your colourful hair would be accepted, perhaps even encouraged!
This is a list of jobs that some of my customers do, both on-line and salon customers. Plus a few jobs I think would let you have colourful hair. Hopefully it will give you some ideas as to what jobs will let you have funky hair colours. Of course it would also depend on your boss, but you get the idea.
