I know that there has been a lot of discussion about natural hair at work and how that can potentially impede your career success. I was at a volunteering training session for Black Pearls Community Services, Inc. — an organization that I work with — and another woman was talking about how a friend of hers feels like she is singled out at work due to her hair.
I think that’s a shame. If you’ve read my posts about hair politics, you’ll know that I’m very much about being yourself at work and letting your work speak for you — not how you decide to wear your hair. But, I also know that not everyone works for a company that is open to non-traditional (read: not permed or weaved) hair. Here’s a snapshot at me at work with my hair in all of its natural glory.
What do you think? Would you be able to rock this style at work or would your colleagues give you the side-eye?
