Basically i'm a black male who's rocking an afro fade right now, and i'm thinking about cutting my hair a little bit for my interview friday (It's at an HBCU if that matters). I want to cut it down to something like the picture below (minus the beard). Do you guys still think this falls under the realm of professionalism?

Your mileage may vary with adcoms but I'm an old conservative guy and I see nothing wrong with the pic provided.

I'm not sure whether it's "professional", but that is a clean cut.

Based on your picture I thought you were a Libertarian

Govt wise? Libertarian all day...

Personal opinion of behavior and how to approach minimizing risk maximizing success in life as you are trying to get ahead and feed the family? Pretty ridiculously conservative.

Cut your hair, hide the tattoos, properly fitted pants, shined shoes, pressed shirt, color choices not too daring, drive the route the day before so know you can find it, be there an hour early so you can walk in the door 15min early, ma'am/sir to everyone, give up your seat to the ladies, open doors etc

Professional enough, but personally I dislike the straight lines at the hairline and prefer a more natural hairline (but that is just a style preference)

@gyngyn sorry to hijack this thread but would a style like the one above be fine for med interviews (minus the designs on the sides)?
