When looking for a new job, my husband generally shaves and these days puts his very long hair in a tight ponytail. But once he establishes his reputation, he grows the beard and lets his hair down. In the case of his newest job, he was so highly recommended coming in, that he didn't put his hair back or shave his beard, and he was hired on the spot.
Now what will happen next year when he dyes his hair blonde for his Hallow'een costume, I'm not sure :

Both have "boy" haircuts, meaning they are cut shorter than usual, and are kept trimmed around the edges. One of my professors is probably in her mid 30's and, quite honestly, would be drop dead gorgeous if she grew out her hair :oops: . My question is this: Do you think that by having a "boy" haircut, it establishes their role in a more professional way, eliminating some of the sex-appeal of being an attractive female? It confuses me either way, because although they are both professors, they could certainly dress in clothing that is still appropriate but fits their figure much better. What do you think?
I'll bet your prof is drop dead gorgeous anyway - shame you can't see it. Who are you to say that they could dress better, in figure hugging clothing? Why? So that you can look at their bodies better? I think that the question really is - why do you think that long hair is attractive? Why do you think women should dress in a certain way? What is making you feel judgemental about someone's appearance?
And of course the Pharaohs who shaved their hair completely. Point is, if short hair has some kind of psychological trigger that makes people who have it be taken more seriously. So, if it works for women too, then why not?
