    Hi,
    I am an aspiring barrister and i was wondering how beards are viewed in the workplace.
    This is about keeping facial hair (doesn't have to be long, could even be just a stubble) in the legal sector.

    Each job varies when it comes to facial hair, some don't really care, some say it must be neat and not scruffy, some places want you clean shaven. I actually was once threatened with disciplinary action for having a stubble.

    How many barristers do you see with beards? I haven't seen any. My tutors a ex barrister and he's fully clean shaven and well kept . I think there all alike,
