You know the old argument, how unkempt looking the natural hair is, how unprofessional, how it should not be rocked to the working place in its full glory. So I and my friend decided to put this little theory to test.
We dressed up, the way we felt a professional would and I sent the pictures to a few people asking if the hairstyle was appropriate and I got mostly positive response. Which was a bit shocking because of the way some employers frown at natural hair. So what is the problem really? Is it the way an Afro claims it space and defies gravity that makes it “unprofessional” or women, in general, should have a particular hairstyle to work?
Anyway, I personally find the Afro very professional, very good – everything and I have pictures to prove!
