I have two important job interviews in London on Monday and my parents seem to think that my hair is too long and messy, here's a few examples of the hair style i'm trying to get:




One of the interviews is in Canary Wharf, inappropriate?
Because I could always cut my hair short and go for a dry messyish style, but I used to have that anyway. I don't want anything plain. By the way my hair is a dark brown, not as dark as these photo's though.

This is the longest my hair has ever been,as it's been short all of my life and I fear i'm going to have to lose 5 months work

Opinions please!

If you look remotely close like these 2 guys, then keep the long hair.

There's guys on my course with long hair. As long as it's not in the way for clinics and it looks smart (same rules as for girls I guess) it's allowed.

That hair is fine. In fact, any long hair is fine, provided it's well groomed.

There will be a significant contingent at Canary Wharf with much much less hair. They might get jealous of yours - I dunno...might be a factor. :-)

I think maybe the styling on the hair makes it look a bit unprofessional. Hot, yes, but not professional. I can't remember seeing anyone on my work experience who had hair any longer than just-hitting-the-collar.

But I have a loathing for men with curly hair, so feel free to ignore me.

I would usually say no, but if it can look as good as in those photos then go for it. I'm not just saying that cos the guy is really hot () but cos I think it does look really smart and profesional, and would look a bit different to the usual short hair. Would probably give you a bit of character, but if it doesn't look sort of smart like the photos I dunno, maybe you shouldn't go for it. Do you have a pic of yourself, then we can give proper opinions.

Yeah I don't think the hair in those images in particularly long or scruffy looking, so if yours is anything like that then you'll be fine

I love that length of hair on guys it definitely is hotstuff you can brush your hands through it

As long as its not too messy and looks professional with a suit, i think it can make you look more professional. My brother had the same problem when he was applying for training contracts at law firms but he ended up keeping it, dont know if that helps.

Thanks for the feedback!

I wish I looked like the guys in the photo's, but i'm quite clearly white, so I'm not sure If i can entirely pull off that Italian-esque look.

I do agree that if it's under control then it's ok, but I'm not sure I ant to take a chance. Once I get the job i'll worry about hair...until then I want to fit in. I realised that the only long haired guys in suits are models. My only problem now is to get it done either tonight of tomorrow!

That's probably the best plan, once you have the job they can hardly sack you for having long hair... :rolleyes:

I'm sure you'll look good whatever

Good luck x

Cheers and you to mate.

Keep the hair, you'll stand out if anything, they'll say "remember that guy with the uber fashionable long hair, im going to give him a job just because he rates a 10 on my cool-dar." Or something along those lines

Cut your hair just for the interview? Damn, that's sad. I'd keep it long, if I were you.
