Not sure where to post this but I would like some advice.

This is typically how I wear my hair:



With shrinkage it looks more like:




Same length and style for the most part.
Is this appropriate for an interview?

I am suddenly getting concerned about “professional” styling and such. I never had a problem looking professional but after reading forums I hate that I’m becoming self conscious about this.

Has anyone interviewed with an afro and got accepted? How did you feel you were perceived during the interview process?

I think this looks just fine as long as you are in professionla dress and carry yourself professionally. Wouldn't even think twice about it.

A huge colin kaepernick fro, especially on a guy, would look over the top to me.

You're fine. I wore a fro to my interview, granted it was a tiny fro and my curls are much tighter but it was a fro nonetheless.

Good luck!

I personally think sister locks look great down, especially when very small. Do you have a photo for reference?

I also like low buns with them. I would do a bun too but my hair is too thick to get the look I want.

I have sister locs too!! (And Nigerian as well!!)
I'd go with a bun as to me they look more 'put together'
Mine are still short (shrinkage leaves it by my ears) so I'll be wigging it even though my interview is after my retightening.

Now just gotta decide if I should do a straight wig or a braided wig.

Oh these are cute! If freshly done they’ll look great down. I could see pin up/bun being cute too. Good luck during interview!

I almost decided on the same thing. then decided with heat I'll pin them up. ! If that wig looks blended do straight! :)

What is the consensus on a tapered cut for a female?

I like it. Modest jewelry and you’re good to go.

Do you have any crazy designs in the cut?
No crazy designs in the cut! I have some time too, so I'm going to grow the sides out a bit thank you!

Just an update: I wore it naturally “down” or “out”, rather, and I got accepted to every program I interviewed for! Plus I got a lot of compliments on my hair. It makes me feel a bit sad that I even worried about it tbh. Wishing the rest of you the best!
